    Here is a gorgeous made to order G&L L2500. A real unique piece and a real looker.

    Custom Specs:

    • Flamed Maple Top (+$429)
    • Ash blackburst Body (+$144)
    • Natural Body Binding (+143)
    • Quarter Sawn Maple Neck (+$143)
    • Light tint gloss neck and headstock (+$215)
    • Ebony fingerboard; no face dots (+$243)
    • Remove model headstock option (+$0)
    • Factory installed single coil option (K-switch +$72)

    Plus all the other G&L L2500 goodies.

    This thing is a beast with big tone that will punch you in the gut. Bass is pretty much in like-new condition. No dents or dings. Maybe just light swirling in gloss.

    Comes with original G&L hardshell case and papers. Case is in near mint condition.

    Bass is about 1 year old and has been babied. Save over ordering new. Especially with G&L's recent price increases. A ton of bass for the money.

    Wow!

    I’ve already got a gorgeous L-2500 with some nice optional features, but that one is at the next level beyond mine.

    Do not under estimate G&L... This is a fine example of their capabilities. I am sure she sounds as awesome as she looks.What a beauty this one is! Too bad I do not play 5 strings or i would want this one!

    Weight is 9.7 lbs according to digital bathroom scale. Probably not a perfect means to weigh but close.

    My first good bass was a G&L L2500. Wish they were a pound or so lighter.
    This one is a beauty.

    G&L custom team does some incredible work on par with the boutique builders craftsmanship. I've got my own L2500 custom and this one is a perfect specimen of what they can turn out when it's ordered right. Great specs all around on this bass. Good looks, complimentary woods, the right hardware bling; some one needs to buy this before I do. (I can't).

    Keep dropping that price, and I may bite. I just bought a new Ric 4003 for $1500 so it needs to drop a bit more for me. Looks killer!

    Thanks. I've had a few G&L's over the years and this one is a real looker. Amazing basses for sure. I'm just a bit upside down on basses at the moment. Sigh.
