I was playin a GL L-2000 at my local music store recently. As I was playing, a guy who walk up to an amp with a Alian Caron (sp?) 6string Fretless , which was for sale! Plugs in plays a few things scales and that stuff. Then he asks me if I could let him see the GL L-2000 I was trying out and maybe going to purchase. So I let him play it ,and to my surprise he bought it over the F Bass! He said this one sounds better I'm like WHAT! NO WAY! So out of trying warwick,spector,GL I'm happiest with the GL L2000.
