G&L Tribute L2000 Electric Bass Guitar
In stock at Guitar Center
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 throughout its evolution the iconic L-2000 has continued to win the hearts of bassists of every style and musical taste.
The foundation of the L-2000 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, Leo gave the L-2000 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-2000 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-2000 delivers the magic of Leo's revolutionary bass at a price attainable for every working musician.

Reviews From Buyers
Amazing tonal flexibility. You want tones? This bass has them in spades. The twin humbucking pickups are switch selectable. Set them up in parallel, or in series. Pick neck, bridge or both. Want passive or active? There's a switch for that. Boost bass and/or treble? Ditto. Leo saved his best for last. This instrument is a blend of P-Bass style swamp ash body with an improvement on the original Stingray/Sabre type pickups and an array of controls that will satisfy the gear geek. The US made pickups (and I suspect, all the electronics) on this bass are the same as the ones on the US made bass that sells for more than twice this price. Buy one! Or two. As always, Guitar Center makes getting the right equipment easy.
