On my lunch break, I went to a local shop and had a nice surprise: they had new Tributes with flamed maple carved tops! The basses were beautiful. One was a sunburst L-2000 with a gloss finished neck that was as beautiful as any American G&L I have ever seen. The prices were $799 for the L-2500 and $899 for the L-2500. The basses played and sounded great too. The build quality is on par with the older Tributes, but the new tops are really beautiful! Check them out if you can.
