    2017 G&L USA L-2500. This is what G&L likes to call a "rare bird", due to the clear natural one-piece ash body and quarter sawn neck. Great weight for this model, at 9.6 lbs. Very minimal wear, no visible dings or scratches. Includes docs and original deluxe tolex case. $1200 shipped CONUS.

    Gorgeous bass. Does it have stiffening rods in the neck?

    Maybe those are redundant with a quarter sawn neck?

    G&L doesn't do graphite/carbon, as their necks are super-stable on their own.
     
  4. They do, actually, per Dave McLaren at G&L (Executive VP). I didn't realize it till I saw an Instagram post and asked and he responded to my inquiry. All he said was they had been doing it "for a few years", so I don't know the exact dates. I thought it was interesting.

    Thanks for the helpful replies, gents. I had no idea myself, and would have to call G&L to find out. I'm a long-time G&L fan, and this is the first I've heard of graphite stiffening rods in their necks.
