Hey all, I've been looking into getting another 5 string, but didn't want to loose that P-bass look, feel and tone. I also wanted a bit more versatility than my P had to offer (no active pre or pups). I just made what I thought was a good deal. I just traded my nice american P (link here--> Bye Bye P :-( ) for this G&L L-2500 USA (link here---> G&L L-2500 ). Cost me my P plus $300. I played a 2500 years ago and loved it, but couldn't afford it then. So did I do the right thing??? It's done so I'll have to live with it. I did this with Bass Palace (Bob). Seemed like they had reasonable prices and nice stuff. My biggest question, was this a fair deal? Thanks guys! Actual pic of the one I'm getting. Oh and those are reflections of lights on it, not scratches or gouges..
