When Leo Fenderâ€ launched the G&L L-2000â„¢ bass in 1980, it was clear he was ready to make history all over again. Never before had such a wide range of tones come from a single bass, and throughout its evolution the iconic L-2000 has continued to win the hearts of bassists of every style and musical taste.
The foundation of the L-2000 is a pair of G&L Magnetic Field Designâ„¢ humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Toneâ„¢ control system, providing the sort of versatility thatâ€™ll let you find your tone no matter what kind of bass line youâ€™re laying down. The Tri-Tone system features a trio of mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing and active/passive operation, as well as a trio of knobs for volume, treble and bass. With all that under the hood, Leo gave the L-2000 the kind of chops thatâ€™ll fit in any situation, from classic R&B to power-packed rock to poppinâ€™ funk. Whatâ€™s more, the L-2000 features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lockâ„¢ bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument.
The TributeÂ® Series L-2000 delivers the magic of Leoâ€™s revolutionary bass at a price attainable for every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, youâ€™ll never look back.
