G&L 2007 Commanche USA

G&L 2006 Legacy USA
Image
G&L 20?? ASAT S USA (3 pickup, 5 way switch)
(dont have a pic)

I own a Fender Tele that i customized.
Image
2 G&L pickups from a nighthawk and one Seymour in the bridge
Replaced bridge and bridge plate etc
Bone nut
Tuners replaced
but the thing is beat lol needs new frets badly

I owned a G&L 1982-83 Nighthawk but the neck broke :-( hence where the 2 original pickups went ^
the bridge pickup was some POS pickup.

I have an early 80s S-500. Great strat-type axe with the slight (very slight) claim to fame in that it was noodled upon way back in 1988 by none other than Trey Anastasio. Phish played a show at a fraternity at my school and I had left the G&L in the room of a buddy with whom I often jammed. Trey crashed in this guy's room after the show and messed around a bit on my guitar the next morning--or so I was told. He reportedly said it had a nice neck, which it most assuredly does. Strange but true.

How do you like the L2500 ? Our bassist has looked into one before.

I played Fenders for quite sometime and then tried a G&L and ive never looked back. imho G&L builds a better guitar and they are hand made unlike the mass productions from Fender.

Def worth checking out :-) lots of G&L folks out there, just gotta poke around ;-)

It's very nice and has some versatility, and like most of Leo's designs, it's well conceived and just works. But it's on the "agressive-punchy" end of the spectrum, more MusicMan than J-Bass.

Pickups have a lot to do with that ?

Probably a lot - they have very high output even in passive mode (PU's + EQ are passive, a 3-way switch offers passive, active preamp or preamp+active-treble-boost).

The other switches are the PU selector and a switch that puts the coils of each PU in series (resulting in a really big fat sound).
