A G&L forum... awesome.
I really should pay more attention to these forums.
I'll be posting pictures here in a month or so when my L2k comes in. Honey, Ash body with maple fretboard and neck. Gun Oil Tint or GOT. I won't be the only one either. I can't wait.
Whats up with the backwards lefty, Lug?
I'm kind of a backwards guy! (actually, I'm a lefty that learned on righty basses). G&L actually built this bass this way.
At a Buddy Holly Tribute Show
I don't own all of these anymore. I do still have the SB1 and the L1000.
Now thats what we need. More of that.
Here is my old L2500. I should have never gotten rid of it. I really,really miss it. I will have another L2500 someday but chances of getting an earlier 4+1 headstock will be slim.
G&L is like the mystery bass. THey seem to have a low profile, but planety of people play them or have owned them, myself included.
I'm glad to see more G&L discussion and, quite frankly, good reviews from almost everyone that has tried one here!
I don't own one & never have(yet ), but the few I've played were nice. Any comments on fretless G&Ls? Dave Pomeroy makes his 4 sing on Oteil's Bassday video, but I'm more interested in a 5.
This is a nice addition to www.talkbass.com , I am really looking foward to getting my Custom Ordered Semi Hollow ASAT in early April.
Here is my current lineup of G&L, still looking for a 2500 with a good B string sound!
If you want a G&L with a good B string sound check out an L-5000 - awesome B!
That's for sure. I used to have one and the low B growled like a mad dog. One of the many basses I wish I would have held on to. If I ever find a picture of my old L5000 I'll post it.
Do you find the tone of the SB1 and the L1K to be different enought o justify owning both? I am only asking because I have an SB1 and I currently am looking to add an L1K to the collection.
I played an L5000 before I decided on my FBB, and I have to say that it had a pretty nice low B. I think you could take that bass to just about any gig and do well with it.
Completely. The L-1000 is more versatile and has a huge growl with the Bass Boost, while the SB1 is the ultimate Pbass. What I should do is settle for just owning the two basses because they cover alot of ground. But like everyone around I gas for other things as well.
Dude, I think I am the current owner of that very bass -- either that or the one that came from the hunk of wood just before or after it. After seeing this pic a couple of days ago, I checked out the grain pattern on mine and it seems to match. I bought it from a fellow TBer a few months back.
You're right, it growls like crazy, which is exactly what I was looking for. Don't worry, it's got a great new home (i.e., I'm not looking to let it go).
