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 G&L Tribute L2500 Electric Bass with a Maple Fingerboard 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.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought one used awhile back from another online retailer.Sold it because I didn’t like the dark blue color.Will be buying another this week from ZZ.The nut width is great for fast lines but not as narrow as an Ibanez.The pickups are very versatile,have a lot of punch and are made in the USA.What more can you ask for? Quality-instrument ,lightweight and well balanced too.Wat to go G&L!They keep creeping up in price which is why I jumped on it.
