What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Swamp ash body Clear highs, strong mids and huge lows
Hard rock maple neck Extremely strong; bright tonal character
G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers Classic output, bright and thick tones
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Leo Fender took everything his experience taught him regarding tone, playability, and all-around utility, and fueled this knowledge into the foundation of G&L. Your G&L Tribute L2000 electric bass showcases just what Leo Fender's ingenuity has in store for you, with its warm and airy swamp ash body, bright-sounding maple neck, super-smooth rosewood fretboard of 21 frets, a full-sounding pair of Fullerton-made G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers, and a mad set of tone-shaping mini-toggle switches. Fire this baby up for a whirlwind of sonic possibilities, and see just how much tone one bass can harness!

Two Fullerton-made G&L Magnetic Field Design Humbuckers

Packing all of the punch of your Tribute L200's tonal resonance and deep sound are a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design humbuckers. These baddies capture your playing and fuse a well-articulated signal rich in low-end boom. Both pickups rest relatively close to this axe's G&L Saddle Lock bridge for a deep sound that still carries a pleasant brightness and snappiness for when you want to get a bit more melodic with your playing.

Swamp Ash Body -- Just Like Leo Fender's Classic Basses

Your G&L Tribute L2000 features a resounding swamp ash body that rests comfortably against your front. Swamp ash is often regarded as the most desirable form of ash, and was a popular wood in Fender's classic '50s guitars. This tonewood does a good job of pushing the higher frequencies of your playing, while still preserving a focused midrange and low end. Ash is also known for maintaining a pleasing lingering sustain for those notes you just don't want to let go of.

Maple Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard

The maple neck on this G&L rests comfortably in your hand, and this baby's smooth and inviting rosewood fingerboard is simply addicting. Your fingers will glide with ease and comfort across 21 frets in smooth and buttery fashion. If you want your bass to stick to the kick drum like glue, the L2000 is the right tool for the job.

Three Mini-toggle Switches to Shape Your Tone

To help you get the most out of this monster of a bass, your G&L Tribute L2000 features two toggle switches along with your standard three-way pickup selector switch. Next to your bridge is your active/passive toggle, which switches your preamp between active and passive electronics for two distinct tonal flavors. The middle mini-toggle switch allows you to switch between series and parallel settings. By simply flipping these three switches around, you'll discover just how many different tonal variations are right at your fingertips on the L2000 bass!

Product Description

The G&L Tribute L2000 bass guitar is outfitted with so many tonal possibilities, it'll make your head spin. The last 25 years have been used to perfect the craft of building the best sounding guitars and basses. G&L's hand crafted instruments offer unmatched quality in every area.

G&L's founder, Leo Fender, spent the last decade of his life lavishing all the knowledge and wisdom he had acquired over the years on the creation of his beloved G&L instruments. He considered the G&L guitars and basses the masterpieces of his lifetime of creativity. Leo worked in his private laboratory at the G&L factory in Fullerton, California, until the very last day of his life and he would not have wanted it any other way. While G&L's unique and highly desirable instruments continue to be meticulously crafted in the historic Fender Avenue factory, they are not accessible to many musicians.

G&L Tribute Series sets a dramatic standard in the popular price range by bringing unique G&L features and standardized CNC quality together in a surprisingly affordable line of guitars and basses. With genuine original equipment G&L pickups and bridges supplied by the Fender Avenue factory, Tribute Series instruments are equipped with unmistakable tone, sustain and playability that surpasses more expensive instruments.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Quality and value that rivals other brand name basses costing twice as much."
Sound: I will be writing this review comparing the L2000 to a M/M Stingray. They are literally from the same beginnings and are comparable in tone. The G&L has a huge array of tonal settings. From in your face brightness, to a more subtle "darker" tone if you take the time to find it. I play with a dimed sound. I use the full bass and treble boosts and both pups. Active pre-amp is a must...it really brings this bass to life. I play through GK amplification. I am planning to go back to SVT in a few months. GK has always sounded a bit thin to me. Compared to a M/M Stingray, which I have owned many of, the tone is similar, but just bigger. A Stingray on steroidal bliss.... Feature: Multiple pickups... electronics AND the ability to just go straight without the active EQ....something the Stingray does not offer...and after all..it's about the TONE! Came with a very nice high quality gig bag and Allen wrenches for the ......pickups, individual poles....truss rod and for the locking saddle on the tail piece. Excellent quality and well thought out placement. Ease of Use: A bit complicated. There is a manual at G&L.com you can download. This bass has unlimited potential and settings through serial, paralleled, front pup, rear pup, combined, pre amp on or off, bass boost, treble boost...it just goes on and on. I found my sound in about ten minutes of experimentation. This bass is very aggressive in tone. Bright and huge bottom end. Quality: OK. Here's where this bass so smokes the M/M Stingray. QUALITY. Period. I have owned about 5 Stingrays that were purchased brand new. One came with a bad neck, (frets were very sharp). One with a broken battery wire. Two with finish flaws. And the final one was good. Not bad, 1 in 5. The quality of this G&L, for half the price, is twice as good. I am not bashing M/M, I'm just telling MY experience with their products. I understand they upped their quality control some years back...I have not owned any recent products from them. I choose G&L now. The finish and piece of wood on this G&L are flawless. I got the natural model. Value: For the price, it rivals basses twice the cost. Sometimes you don't get what you pay for....you get much better. I am very surprised at this basses play ability and tone. The neck is lightning fast. It is just the same as a M/M neck. Satin finish....very fast. Tone for days. This bass is very aggressive in tone. Bright and huge bottom end. Manufacturer Support: I selected 5 for this as I just received the bass and hope NOT to have any contact with the company. The Wow Factor: It looks great. Sounds great. I doubt I'll be sleeping with it however. The bass is a no brainer if you are looking for an very well made bass. Yes, it's assembled overseas....but it uses all American made electronics. The same electronics that come on the American made basses. I have played both models. You can not tell the difference. Overall: I would replace it if stolen. I chose this for it's advertised value and brand name. I was very surprised and happy when I opened the box.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best buy for your bass dollar available IMHO."
Sound: This isn't the American made bass but the parts that count are the same. I cannot say enough about the versatility of this instrument. I'm getting everything I need from the bass, and then some. I have to take it on faith that the US made version would be better in some way ... 100%, for me, I am very satisfied. If I had unlimited funds I'd have purchased the US version, I don't and I have zero regrets. Feature: I do not see a bass available with this kind of range, for any price. Again, the US made version 'may' prove to be an upgrade ... I can't say. But at this price point (imo) there is not a better buy out there. Ease of Use: Lots of options so it may take a bit to dial in your own sound. Quality: I would have went 10 ... the US version is probably better ..I am personally very happy with what I have. Value: Starting up again after a decade. I played an (American standard) Fender Jazz back in the day ... I miss the Jazz due to the neck ... but I honestly feel like this is a better instrument. I know damned well that it is a better value than anything Fender offers non-US ... and the bridge is better than Fender's US models. This may be the best bang for the buck bass available in the market today. Damned solid instrument. Manufacturer Support: NA ... the website had everything I needed The Wow Factor: Bought the Natural finish ... sexy. Got it as 'B' Stock ... not a damned thing wrong with it. I paid ~$550 ... would have easily paid more. The instrument is worth $800+ easy. Honestly at $1000+ it is a good buy, you won't find an instrument of this quality with this kind of versatility for less available IMHO. Overall: I'm good with this bass forever. I can see, maybe, buying the US version if I start playing out often ... but that will be just 'cause. This bass rocks, best buy for the dollar out there imo.
Style of Music: still lookin' for a style
