O.K., I've owned the L2K for awhile and now a Trib JB-2. Both are excellent in their own ways, though very different in many respects. Now I am kinda gassing for an SB-2, BUT I read here and have reason to believe the L1K is a great axe also as are many of the old time G&L's. I really want to get the collection down to 2 main axes so I ask, what am I missing not having a SB-2 or classic (no longer made) G&L??
