SALE G&L L2500 Tribute ________________________________________ Selling my L2500 Tribby, it has an ash body, maple neck with a rosewood board. Plays and sounds great. Comes shipped in a nice G&L gig bag. Currently strung with TI Jazz flats in great shape. Also included are the virtually unused roundwound strings that the bass came with. I am the original owner. Bought new from Rocketmusic and the bass has only left my non-smoking house a few times. Never gigged. Its in great shape. ****DESCRIPTION**** It's a G&L L-2500 Tribute 5-string fretted bass. The Tribute part means it was manufactured in Indonesia. However, the preamp/electronics are the same as the US version. Very playable, and it's more affordable than its American counterpart. This bass is awesome, and the preamp especially gives the player a great deal of control over their tone. You can dial in tons of classic bass tones; the versatility is amazing. This bass features a carved top, and super playable. ****PRICE/TERMS**** $497 shipped via UPS ground. The price really is firm. PAYPAL only. CONUS only. Sorry, no trade interests at this time. Not meaning to be rude but I will ignore trade queries and requests in order to not waste time (yours or mine). Review from Bassics Magazine: http://www.glguitars.com/reviews/L2500.asp Quotation from that review: While the G&L bass line is not exactly ubiquitous, they do seem to be popular with many players. Although he has never actually played an L-2500, Nashville studioman Dave Pomeroy, who owns a pair of fretted and fretless mid '80s L-2000s (the similarly equipped 4-string version), finds them "massive sounding". He also describes them as "reliable, solid, versatile instruments that have never let me down. I especially like the series/parallel switch - it's almost like an amp sound. Being able to bypass the active circuit to get a more 'vintage' sound is also a cool feature." And Harry DeBusk noted, "Everything I got from it was some variation on a P-bass tone unexpected from a 2-pickup bass. This might be why you liked it in a band/ensemble setting. That P-bass midrange is fabulous there." Harry would've preferred a pickup blend knob over the 3-position selector switch and felt the finish was, "one of the best-applied finishes I've seen - right up there with custom work. Quite impressive." His conclusion was that, "if a player is looking for a 5-string P-bass, this is it." Obviously the G&L L-2500 is an instrument steeped in the tradition of Leo Fender, but with the added flexibility and advantages of active electronics and a 5-string configuration. Overall, a very solid, well-made instrument with a "modern-vintage" sound.
