Emailing with a seller of a G&L Tribute M-2500, 5 string black w/ maple board. He's guessing this bass weighs about 12-15 pounds. Holy Crap Batman!! I know the Tributes' aren't as light of wood as the US models and I believe this is gona be a Basswood body with the solid color. I've asked him to try to verify the actual weight, hoping he's guessing wrong. Anybody own the M-2500 that can speak to the weight of yours? Also, what is the string spacing at the bridge, less than 19mm? And just over all how is the quality, tone, neck, feel etc of this model series? I've been reading threads of my G&L searches last nite of this bass but no specifics on weight, overall quality yet. I'll keep reading in the mean time. Peace, e.
