Overview

Three decades ago, the G&L L-2000 bass served notice that company founder Leo Fender  was ready to disrupt the status quo. The bold, brash L-2000 and the L-2500 five-string that followed have always been an exhilarating experience for players with the skill to pull it off. Now the new M-2000 and M-2500 harness that power with a sonic palate that will surprise and delight new and die-hard G&L fans alike.

Leo's MFD humbuckers have always been the heart of the iconic L-Series. In the all-new M-Series, these powerhouses are voiced to fully exploit a studio-quality 18v preamp system specially designed by G&L's R&D wizard Paul Gagon. With an LF442 chip, 100v poly caps, 1% metal film resistors and big, fat signal traces on the mil-spec circuit board, this preamp reveals everything the player and the instrument have to offer.

And there's even more:
¢ Primary volume and pan controls to explore the full range of sounds available between the two pickups
¢ 3-band EQ with peripherally placed, center-detent, reduced-diameter knobs
¢ An impeccable, familiar "feel" of the instrument in the hands and on the shoulder

For slapping, rolling back some highs and dialing up some lows, coupled with a mid-range boost, magnifies the intensity that Leo's humbuckers are famous for. Need more definition for fingerstyle? Just bring up the treble and roll off the bass for a nuanced and detailed sound. Headroom? The new M-Series preamp harnesses the power of those meaty MFD humbuckers without a hint of clipping. The best tools are simple, intuitive and easy to use, and that's exactly what you'll find in the new M-Series package.

Various styles and colors available. Please see drop down menu to choose.

Awesome 5 String for Any price

By David Bitner

from Southwestern, PA

Comments about G&L Tribute M2500 5-String Electric Bass:

I have played a lot of 5 strings and have to say that this is one of the best basses you can get for under 1K. Usually if you shop well enough you can get it for half that. The electronics are worth that alone! It does have a thick neck, but if you set it up right and get the action low it will still play like a dream. It has a growl for days and adaptability to any style of music. Just a rock solid bass that sounds great through any amp.

Fantastic Bass

By Mary Denn

from Eugene, OR

Comments about G&L Tribute M2500 5-String Electric Bass:

I Recently purchased this bass, and man i love it. First off the Finish on everything is great. Some people get scared off by the non made in america versions of basses, but G&L has it together. There quality control must be great, the finish on the fingerboard and frets is outstanding. Ive seen alot of made in mexico fenders with lifted frets or horrble fingerboards, but this bass just blew me away for the same price. The 18 volt preamp really pumps it out, from rock to R&B it covers everything. G&L has got to have my favorite bridge, these bridges are meaty yet aren't an eyesore. I love the locking saddle design. If your in the market for a bass in this price range, don't hesitate, It's a great buy.
