    I've been intrigued by these.

    So any of you guys own one of these and what are your findings?

    G&L makes great guitars, and their import line is second to none in quality. Cant go wrong there. If you are worried about resale, you will take a bit more of a beating than on a more known brand. Not a big deal to me, but some people get tied up in knots over that.

    The comanche is pretty cool. I have never played one. The reputation is that it takes a bit of time to master those crazy z pickups, but once you do, there is an unreal variety of tones at your fingertips.

    I had one. The pickups are strong but the passive treble bass circuit allows you to thin them out for a more vintage tone. For some it can be a do everything guitar. Very well crafted, quality components, great vibrato bridge. I eventually sold mine because the pickups seemed a bit too sterile to my ears...but sometimes I think I was being too picky.

    Get it. I had a L2500 Tribute bass and it was pro quality in every way. Massive, solid hardware; built like a tank.
