  1. I'm torn between a Warwick , Ernie Ball stingray 5 string and a G&L L-2500. any suggestions for someone who doesn't have access to these basses to hear or play them. Playability is a must. I'm looking for a low noise growly bass. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I've owned the 4 string version of the G&L L-2500 (the L-2000) and a MM Sterling, and out of those two, I liked the sound of the G&L better but the feel and neck of the MM. The G&L is a lot of bass for how much it costs. Wide variety of sounds, great fit & finish, nice fret job. But it does weigh a ton (~13lbs from what I remember!)...for recording, no biggie. Neat-o bridge and adjustable pole pieces. You're not paying as much for the name as you are with a MusicMan, too.

    Another vote for the L-2500.
