    I bought a new Tribute L2K and it immediately replaced 3 of my other basses. Very nicely made, beautiful wood (it's natural with a satin maple FB, so there's no place to hide), versatile electronics and a killer sound.

    I haven't been this excited over a new axe since I bought my LP goldtop in 1997. It gets the fat P sound, an individual percussive sound, and others I can't label but which come up on particular songs.

    If the G&Ls are better, they are damned good. I can't directly compare it to a Fender Standard, but it kills all my other basses, most of which were extensively tweaked to get a good sound.

    If this sounds like an ad, so be it. I haven't found anything to beat it.
  3. i bought a tribute JB2 from a fellow tb'er and it's an amazing bass, considering it's cost. sorry i can't give you a comparison to the deluxe jazz but i have owned mim jazzes and the tribute is much better built and with the usa pickups it sounds great too.
  4. The original G&L's arn't that much better, the tribute ones are made in korea, but with the same attention to detail and quality as the american one's. And I'd say that it's a better deal than any Fender (I tried MM's for 2000 €, and fenders for at least 1500 € before I settled for buying mine)

    Tributes are of great quality. If you want G&L sound and not a Fender sound, go G&L Tribute and save some change.
