just a thought !!!! iv'e read alot of posts.does anybody like G&L basses or are they just not played.i have a stingray anniversary model i thought it was the most kick ass bass there was then i tried a G&L asat bass wow !!!what diversity but this thing is heavy.its swamp ash and its one big hunk of wood.i hear people talking on hear about the jazz /stingray and many other basses.but this bass to me seems to be able to sound like many of these basses people are talking about.why are they overlooked or is it just me. remember as always--rock till ya drop.
