Found this "used" at GC, though I can't tell that it has ever been played. The headstock says "Made in U.S.A.". It had no case. They originally had it marked at what seems like actually not a bad price for a used, MIA L-2500. But it sat around for a while and they marked it down $200. Then I guess it sat around some more, so they finally marked it down another $200. In swoops Stuart. Score!!! An MIA L-2500 for a Tribute price. I think I even saw a Tribute 2500 at a different GC for more than what I paid. I know they have one at my local GC for $50 less than I got this one for. It was shipped to me and arrived at my office today. I can't wait to get it home and plug it in!! I may even have to curtail tonight's beer-drinking activities!
