Wow, I'm impressed. I just found out that a G&L dealer is literally 3 blocks from my office here in Alexandria, VA!!! I'm happy since I own a USA L2000 and love it. I played 2 5-string Tributes, one rosewood and one maple. They are darn close to the USA models. Electronics sounded great, workmanship was very good and man, still have that awesome G&L ring and growl. These are also a killer value for the money. The guy there had at least 4 in stock to choose from including some USA models to compare them to. I hope to get one soon. If you are looking for some in stock, check this guy out at Acoustic Axis. I think the website is www.acousticaxis.com though I did not seem them listed. His prices were awesome. He'll ship too. Thought I'd pass on the word. I'm sold.
