Hi, (This is my second thread on these basses. Sorry, but I thought it’d be simpler than burying this at the bottom of the other thread.) So I’ve been semi-actively looking for a new fiver these last couple of months. The models that interest me the most so far are the G&L Tribute L2500/M2500. I haven’t found an L at a local store so I could only try an M, and then listen to different demo videos, such as Ed Friedland’s. Anyways, an ad popped up today in the local classifieds. A L2500 Tribute, mint with brand new strings and a case, all for 550$. That seems like a very nice deal. Thing is, I wasn’t quite ready to buy yet. I wanted to sell another bass first, which needs to be evaluated. But I’m thinking maybe I should jump on this. (It’s a little market here and these basses are not common in the local ads.) Also, at first I was very much into the L for its tone versatility and major growl. But Ed says its pups are so hot they can be a bit too much at times (too much mids that you wished you could roll back, if I remember his words correctly). I’m not a very "in your face" bassist. I like that the L can dial in plenty of growl, but I’m afraid maybe it’ll be too much. So I was starting to think maybe I should go M rather than L, for a sound that sits more comfortably in the mix. But now there’s this ad… If it were a M, I think I’d already be negociating. But being an L, I’m afraid I might regret. I’m planning on calling the seller this evening to ask if he minds that I go try it a bit before making a decision. -But what are your impressions concerning the above comments by Ed Friedland? -What are different pup configurations that I should try in order to get a good appreciation of what the bass can do? (Some people say the L2500 can go in P-bass territory… How?) -And what do you think of that deal? Thanks immensely.
