Out of the blue I find myself out of the classic rock band I've been with for 3 years and into a brand new modern country band. It seems to me like a 5er is pretty much required equipment for this kind of work. Fortunately I have my 20 yr old Carvin LB 75 so I have a main instrument but now I'm looking for a backup and 2 models keep coming to mind: a G&L L2500 Trib and a Peavey TL-5. I already have an L2K Trib so I'm pretty sure I know what I'd get from the G&L. But my Peavey experiences have been limited to a couple of vintage passive basses- the T40 and T20. My budget is going to be between $3-500 so let me know what you think of these 2 options or if there's another good choice I'm just plain missing here. And a couple of other things you should know, I'm not partial when it comes to bolt-on or neck thru, and I dont have a preference when it comes to maple or rosewood boards. Thanks guys-let me know your opnions!
