Add to Cart
Here' an extremely clean G&L Tribute Series L-2000 Carve Top bass. The natural flame maple top on this looks gorgeous, which matches the phenomenal tones from this one, thanks to the Magnetic Field humbucking pickups and unique switching options. Lots of tones available, to say the least. This one is in Excellent condition, and includes the original high-quality padded, branded gigbag. 

Here's what G&L has to say:

G&L Tribute Series sets a dramatic new standard 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. With unbeatable value and performance in a high quality instrument, once you play a G&L Tribute Series, you’ll never look back.

The G&L Saddle-Lock Bridge:

The G&L Saddle-Lock® bridge is used on the full range of G&L basses. This design was revolutionary for a number of reasons. The most significant feature is a small Allen screw on the side of the bridge, which presses all the saddles together so they resonate as though they were one single mass. This eliminates the loss of string vibration energy caused by side-to-side saddle movement inherent in other designs. Further, the strings no longer needed to be routed though the rear of the body for optimum sustain as well as allowing the strings to enter directly through the rear of the bridge.

The bottom side of the bridge has a large protrusion which fits into a route in the body. The protrusion fits snugly against the end grain of the body wood, allowing the highly resonant bridge to transfer much more of the string vibration energy directly to the core of the body, yielding much greater sustain than his earlier fixed bridge design. Again, Leo's innovative saddle design was used to minimise string breakage.

The G&L Non-Compression Truss Rod:

G&L's contemporary, non-compression design incorporates a secondary, flat-sided rod which bows away from primary rod. Unlike a vintage truss rod, this design does not compress the neck longitudinally in order to function; compression is undesirable because it tends to distort the curvature of the fingerboard. Operation is both fluid and accurate with the articulation of the neck, the "relief", being very consistent across the length of the neck.
