    Is this a high end, top quality bass? The best out there?

    High end, I think so.
    Best out there? Doubt it. Too many $3-5,000 custom shops out there now...
    Solid axe, plenty of tone options, great playability. I bought one in 1981, and still have it...

    Very nice sounding and playing instrument. It is High End but it's not a "boutique" bass... you won't be dissapointed. (plus it won't cost $4K). You can find a used USA one for the same price as a new Korean Tribute on the Ebay. The Tributes are pretty well made also, but they don't have the same solidness of the USA's in my opinion. I'm currently looking into a tribute L-2500 just to rock a 5 string from time to time!

  5. I play a Trib L2k, and its a fantastic bass. high output in passive mode, even more when its active.

    Sounds great. The tone shapes so well, it will work for almost anything.

    It hung on my wall for a while without being played (been on a fretless kick), but recently I started picking it up again and fell in love all over

    I actually used to play one, but I just didnt really like it at all. I thought the tone was sub-par (no pun intented) and the neck felt like a log. But thats my personal opinion.

    I've owned many brands of basses (most of them were more expensive than G&L) and the G&L's have given me the tone and versatility. They're all I own now, and it'll probably stay that way. My opinion (based on 25+ yrs of gig experience in a variety of musical styles) is that the L2000/L2500/ASAT series is the best value out there...especially when purchased used.
