When Leo Fender† launched the G&L L•2000™ bass in 1980, it was clear he was ready to make history all over again. Never before had such a wide range of tones come from a single bass, and today the L•2500™ packs all the features of the latest L•2000 into a 5-string.
Like its L•2000 brother, the foundation of the L•2500 is a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design™ humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone™ control system, providing the sort of versatility that’ll let you find your tone no matter what kind of bass line you’re laying down. The Tri-Tone* system features a trio of mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing and active/passive operation, as well as a trio of knobs for volume, treble and bass. With all that under the hood, the L•2500 brings the kind of chops that’ll fit in any situation, from classic R&B to power-packed rock to poppin’ funk. What’s more, the L•2500 features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock™ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.
The Tribute® Series L•2500 delivers the magic of Leo’s revolutionary design at a price attainable for every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.
*Tri•Tone Pre-Amp-Active Bass Pre-Amp Circuitry. Treble and Bass controls, Series/Parallel Selector Switch, and a 3-position switch for pre-amp ON/OFF and treble boost. Incredible sonic versatility for any playing style from poppin’ funk to high-tech-fusion to pounding metal.
