G&L Tribute M-2000 GTS TB Bass - nearly perfect

Michael S. 128, 20.06.2013
This my third G&L bass. My first was a USA made L1000, my second a Tribute L2000. They are indeed the most playable of any of the basses I have owned before. This one is no exception. The look is great with the flamed maple top. Turn it over and you get the mahogany body tone through the translucent black. Excellent. The hardware is of the quality you would expect from G&L and the 18v electronics are superb. The range of tones that can be obtained from the pick up pan control and 3 band graphic is spot on. All together I am very pleased and impressed with this bass.
Why did I say nearly perfect in the title? Well the only thing that kept my quality score off 5 stars is the fact that 2 or 3 frets were rough at the ends and in need of filing smooth and the volume control knob was not squarely seated in position. Not major problems that would warrant returning but just a little disappointing for a guitar at this price level. Other than that I love it!

Very versatile

17.07.2014
I was looking for a versatile four string bass that was a little bit "different" and came across these lovely G&L basses.

The preamp is extremely versatile and has a lot of headroom---the sounds are completely usable across the full range of cut/boost (on my previous active bass the sound would distort if you boosted too much). The sound is quite modern, but between the two humbuckers, the pan control and the very versatile preamp you can get a huge variety of tones out of this guitar. The output from this bass is really hot---I have to massively turn down the gain and volume on amps in comparison to any other bass I've played.

Neck wise, the profile is one of the comfiest I've ever played. Slightly chunky, but extremely enjoyable to play even with my small(ish) hands. I much prefer the neck profile to that of the L-2000 Tributes, which I found a bit *too* chunky. The action and setup out of the box was spot on. The stock strings were a bit "clangy" but now that they've had a week or so of playing in they sound great. I may replace them with Pressurewounds anyway.

Looks wise this bass is really beautiful. The carved top goes very well with the binding and the transparent finish.

On the downside, this is actually the second M-2000 Tribute that I ordered from Thomann. The first one had tool markings on the fretboard and the knobs were not oriented correctly. I think someone at the factory was having a bad day when they put it together! Thankfully Thomann were fantastic about sending me a replacement which is in A+ condition. Slightly irritatingly the body wood on the faulty one was a bit prettier than the replacement, but no two pieces of wood are the same so I am not complaining!

Overall I would absolutely recommend one of these instruments.
