    It’s time to show some G&L love! I know you folks dig em, and they are what ultimately brought a lot of us here.

    I got my first from the Dudepit about 12 years ago -a 1983 L2000 with the eye gouger headstock. Since then I’ve had 3 L1000s, an L2000e, and a slab SB-2. I should have pics of them somewhere and I’ll post them when I have a chance.

    I went for a few years without a G&L until I got this SB-2 recently. In a word, it sounds mean. 😈

    Not my carpet, sorry for the ad photos. 😀

    It’s like a tractor beam, I can’t seem to pull away from.

    Recently saw a thread where the OP said he was having a hard time taming his SB-2, especially with the absence of a tone knob.

    Other than pickup volume(s), how do you control yours, or do you let it run wild?

    I can’t speak for an SB-2 because I have an L-2500. But I do have a couple of guitars with only a volume control. In those cases I dial in as much tone as I want from the amp. I will then open the volume full on the guitar and make adjustments there. A small decrease in volume from a very hot pickup (like MFD’s, or in my example really hot humbuckers) can make large differences in tone.

    Yeppers, unless it has a treble bleed installed or is wired to prevent it the volume pot acts as a second tone pot and will lose high end definition as the volume is reduced. In some cases that can be a plus and in others not. I tend to prefer installing treble bleeds so my tone doesn’t change with volume but others feel just the opposite.

    FWIW is tends to be much less noticeable on a bass vs certain guitars.

    I just let it run wild. I thought about a tone knob initially but then, I didnt buy it to sound like a Fender and have so far decided to use it for what it is. Its gnarly and always will be, with or without tone so I embrace that. 🙂

    Asking about Fenders in a G&L thread!

    I’m thinking it’s a bad idea, but what if we all reported his post as off topic and offensive?

    You’re right, it’s a bad idea! lol. If you really want to get the guy, bend him over a block of ice, pull his pants down, and stick a dry cob right in there. You’ll never see another Fender

    Trapped in time, surrounded by evil, low on gas. When does this happen in the movie?
