Looking for a reasonably priced tribute l2000.
I've never played one before, thinking about experience the their mighty electronics and MFD pickups

If you hunt around you could probably find a US made for very little more, they somehow don’t seem to hold their value very well. Surprising for such a well made and versatile quality instrument by there you go.

I've been looking around for a while now, no luck, thought give a WTB post a go.
You're absolutely right about g&l's resell value, I was a proud owner of a USA JB-2 and a tribute SB-2, but somehow that's not the situation right now. tribute l2000 is about 700 and USA-made ones are all over $2000 :shrug:

I have a USA L2500 that I'd be willing to trade if that's of any interest? Was my first 5 string but I haven't used her in years...

Tempting, but I don't know, I really don't need that "extra" string.

On pickups I guess, hope it's not something weird ;)

I regret never trying it on the old 5 string Warwick I had when I only used the B as a thumb rest and went back to four string, but I picked up a cheapy 5 string to do chord pracitice on (which hasn’t actually happened, oh well) and it has E to C. Plays just like I know how but with a slightly broader neck string to string. I should have kept the Warwick it was super tight spacing so I wouldn’t have noticed much different. Just an extra string to manage muting of which shouldn’t be hard if you’re already doing the G 90% of the time.

Or you can just get what you want, an L2000, which is probably easier.

I am probably would find much use for it either, hence I never played on before, gotta try one first.

I had a very clean USA L2500 in green burst with case. couldn't give it away. Sold it eventually for $800. Very nice bass but I found the string spacing a bit narrow. I would be happy to give one another try though. high quality stuff.

Not sure if this is a good deal or not but just spotted this at Cashies in Northcote.

EDIT:
Also just realised you said L-2000 and not M-2000. 8|
