Up for sale, a 2021 G&L L-2000 electric bass guitar in showroom clean condition and in perfect working order. A rare custom color iteration with a Sonic Blue gloss finish and matching peghead, this L-2000 is complete with the original COA, build sheet, and hardshell case. As the third instrument company founded by Leo Fender, G&L's instruments benefit from Leo's decades of experience at Music Man and (of course) Fender.
The foundation of the L-2000 is an alder body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard, a tonewood complement which ensures an articulate, powerful natural response with ideal top end detail, balanced midrange character, and plenty of low end heft. At the heart of the L-2000 is a pair of G&L's Magnetic Field Design humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone control system. 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. This G&L weighs 8lbs 12oz, professionally setup with 45-105 roundwound strings here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with easy-playing action and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has a medium C profile carve with generous shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .820" deep at the 1st fret and .960" at the 12th. On the thick, dark rosewood slab fretboard, the medium jumbo fretwire is nigh flawless with just a hint of wear on the crowns of frets 1-2. Notes ring out clearly up the 34" scale, and the nut measures 1 5/8" in width, carved from bone for optimal note clarity and sustain. The matching Sonic Blue peghead features G&L's Ultra Lite clover button tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch well.
All of the electronics function flawlessly, and the chrome plating on the hardware shines like new. The Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge transfers string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument, complete with chrome-plated brass saddles. The Sonic Blue gloss finish has barely a scratch on it, and the satin neck profile finish is equally flawless.
The original black tolex hardshell case is included, along with the COA and build sheet.
