    Hi, I purchased a G&L L2000 Tribute. What strings brand came with this bass? I want to know the best strings gauge for this bass? If anyone know please tell me.:cool:

    I just got a Tribute L-2000 as well. The strings ball ends are colored, which leads me to think they are D'Addario. My sales rep told me the string guage is 45-105. The bass sounds fantastic, but I've been thinking I might like a little less tension in the strings. I'm looking at DR Sunbeams, or Thomastic-Infeld Superalloy. Both have round cores and should be a little more flexible than the stock D'Addario's.

    I've been wanting a G&L Tribute for a LONG time,
    and I'm a huge fan of that really punchy cut through the mix tone.
    My last visit to a local music store the owner had an older, really beat up Tribute with Elixirs on it, medium gauge.

    It sounded amazing.
    And they're coated. :D

    I got a Tribute L2K recently and when I switched from the factory strings to Thomastik Power bass Strings it really sings.
