    I am selling my G&L L2500 string in Blue Burst. This is the USA model (NOT A TRIBUTE) and is in excellent condition. The strings are Fender Flats and are in excellent condition as well. Factory hard case is included.

    Condition. This bass is used, it has some scratches from being played but no dings/dents/or any other malicious wear. The frets have decades of life left and the neck is nice and straight. The case is missing 2 feet and has some scratches on the outside, but all the latches and hardware work (no key).

    Edit: Weight for bass is 9 pounds even.

    Price: $875.00 Shipped/insured to CONUS. No trades, sorry. Payment through Paypal This is the last price drop, going on Evilbay 3/31/2014 this afternoon!

    Factory Description:


    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. A decade and a half after the L-2000 shocked the bass world, the L-2500 five string version took the power of the L-2000 to new lows.

    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, 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. With the addition of a meaty low 'B', the L-2500 brings a crushing bottom end that's tight and well defined. 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. On the other end is a comfortable, C-shaped neck checking in with a modern 12" radius and 21 Plek-processed medium-jumbo nickel frets ready to deliver silky playability.

    Made in Leo Fender’s historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the L-2500 is available with a wide range of custom options including body and neck woods, body and neck finishes, and neck profiles.

    PICKUPS: Two G&L Magnetic Field humbucking pickups
    BODY WOOD: Alder on Standard and all solid finishes, Swamp Ash on Premier Finishes
    NECK WOOD: Hard Rock Maple with Rosewood or Maple fingerboard
    NECK PROFILE: G&L #10 with 12" radius and 1 3/4" nut-width
    FRETS: Medium Jumbo; processed by PLEK
    TUNING KEYS: Custom G&L "Ultra-Lite" with aluminum tapered string posts
    BRIDGE: Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle Lock with chrome-plated brass saddles
    ELECTRONICS: Tri-Tone™ system with 3-position pickup selector, series/parallel switch, 3-position pre-amp mode switch, volume, treble, bass
    CASE: Deluxe Hardshell Tolex Case

    Weight for the bass is 9 pounds even. An Ultimate Sport digital bike scale was used to get this weight.

    Case is another 10 pounds.
