Today I played 5 different G&L's and they aren't what I remember from a year ago. I tried out 2 L-2000's. 1 a tribute, one a USA. Both had floppy E stings and uncomfortably wide necks. I suppose I should have mentioned at the begging that this took place at a local music store and all of these are brand new. Another was a JB-2 tribute. Wide neck, crappy action and floppy strings. There were plenty of tuners around so I checked to make sure they weren't tuned down 4 or 5 steps. Another was the G&L jazz bass. American made and a neck chunkier than any P-Bass I've ever tried. The last was a L-2500. The tires on my SUV aren't as wide as that neck. All the necks felt virtually the same with the differences I did detect being minimal. Flat feeling and wide. While they really were playable, they were not comfortable. I'm actually out of breath from all that... There was also a Warwick there that I played that felt much better than any of the G&L's. Anyway you get the gist of what I'm trying to say. I've played G&L's before that were fine. Especially a JB-2 that was once at the same shop and was sold before I could do anything about it. I've played L-2000's, both USA and tributes that felt fine. But all of these were just received for stock within the last 7 days from G&L. What happened?
