I have an old G&L SB-2, with two J-style pickups. From some web research, it looks like it must have been made in the 1982-84 range because of the pickup configuration. I bought it used in 1990. It seems to be in very good condition, the only real fault is a chip on the E-string edge of the fingerboard that doesn't seem to affect the sound. I know very little about basses. I have played guitar off and on for the last 20 years and until recently hardly ever played the bass. But about a year ago, I was drafted to play bass in a garage-ish rock band and am really liking it. I hope to keep playing bass, take some lessons, etc. I'd also like to expand into jazz someday, but that's probably far away. So, I'm just curious what I've got. Is this a bass that I can use indefinitely, or am I going to outgrow it quickly? Is it known to be flexible, or is it a one trick pony? I know these questions depend on the user, but I want to know what the reputation of this bass is. What kinds of players tend to like it or dislike it, whether there are any common problems to look out for, that kind of stuff. Thanks in advance.
