    I've been saving up for a G&L L2000 for a loooong time now, and I finally have enough for it! But the only problem is, where the hell can I get one custome ordered? (ie: with a jazz neck and 3tone sunbust finish) I keep ordering G&L catalogs from their sight but they never come, and samash and musiciciansfriend.com only sell one model of the bass =/

    Any advice?

    Check out ebay...I think the is called Oklahoma Vintage Guitar or somethin' like that. They have some of the nicer G&L's I've seen new and I'm sure you can custom order through them.

    These guys were referred to me by G&L's customer service www.buffalobrosguitars.com/gl.htm . I think their located in Nashville or Memphis. Go used G&L if possible. I like the older ones alot better than the newer models. The older models have the output jack on the face and are top routed.;)

    Yeah man, go for a used one on Ebay or any of the used gear sites. I love L2000's but would never pay the new price for one given what you can get them for used.

    Good Luck

    You asked about ordering a custom bass from the factory.
    Try Dave at www.guitaradoptions.com
    He assisted me in ordering a custom ASAT.
    It takes from between 8-15 weeks, and is worth it.
    You get a hand-made bass with your specs of G&L options, necks, woods, finishes, trim.
    Great work on great sounding & playing instruments. Very reasonable prices for the quality you get. I was & still am delighted with
    my instrument.
    BTW, Buffalo Bros. is in California, & they have a good rep as well, as does Bass Northwest.
    Good luck, and enjoy your great new axe.
    I'm planning to custom order a JB-2 and an SB-2
    in the near future.
  6. Look up and you will see a banner add for G&L basses right here on this site!

    Picked up my L-2500 with an incredible price from Dave at Guitar Adoptions Also an authorized G&L dealer. Best customer service I ever experienced too. He has this L-2000 listed in his current specials:

  8. Buffalo Bros. is located in Los Angeles and they sell more G&Ls than anybody else. In fact a whole section of their website is devoted to G&L. They are almost in a category with Elderly Instruments and Mandolin Bros., but not quite. I haven't dealt with them in a couple years and the recent feedback that I have heard was disappointing, but overall my experience has been good and I would give them another try if I were in the market for a G&L or something else they specialize in. A friend tried several times over 6 months to become a G&L dealer and never could get a response to any of his telephone calls, emails or letters, despite the fact that the closet G&L dealer is 300 miles away. So he gave up and picked up Fender instead.
