Perfect after setup.

A little about myself. Bands and studio musician in 1960's early70's. Started playing for my own amusement 4 years or so ago. yes I'm an aged hippy.
This is a fantastic bass. When first delivered it buzzed electrically and the action was not good. Took it to my guitar tech who completely changed all that. He partially rewired the battery box and sorted out the nut amongst other small adjustments to bring the instrument within spec. Keep in mind I have bought an expensive American Fender Jazz bass in the past that has needed serious setup. All guitars need setting up from the dealer. All my comments apply to the guitar after setup.
I have had many Fender and Gibson basses in the past and this is up there with the best of them. Any sound or tone you want can be dialled in. Action, frets, neck and tuners are excellent. The pups deserve a special mention as when combined with the 18volt preamp they are precise and very powerful. The bridge is solid and is the G&L flange type design. The instrument stays in tune and barely requires tweaking in a centrally heated environment day to day.
BTW please fit good quality strings to this guitar. I was advised in 1964 to fit La Bella strings and have never felt a need to change. A couple of years ago I did buy Elixirs just for the hell of it. They were ok but all my bass guitars have La B's on now.
There is one thing that's a niggle. I wish the battery box was quick change such as you get on most toys. Also the instrument is heavy, so a wide strap is in order.
Pro setup cost me £35 so for that meagre amount I have a guitar that I thoroughly enjoy playing, and is one of the most versatile instruments I've ever owned.

G&L Tribute M2000

Barry T., 27.04.2015
A quick review of the M2000 in gloss black, as I've only seen reviews for the other finishes. The finish is beautiful. Yes, it's just gloss black, but the quality of finish is excellent, very smooth and a deep shine. Gorgeous looking maple grain on the neck too. Perfect fret-ends and smooth neck. I have no issues with fret buzz or a bowed neck like the other reviews. The only issue I can see it the bass EQ know is very slightly angled when you turn it. Also the action was very high, but easily fixed to my preference, now very low with no buzz. Exceptional guitar for 400 UK pounds! Fast dispatch and received within a week from German.
