The G&L CLF Research L-2500 Series 750 is based on the popular model first released in 1981. This 5-string electric bass is packing everything that makes the L-2000 and L-2500 iconic, along with a full 3/4" string spacing at the bridge. The CLF Research L-2500 and other G&L fivers continue with narrower 11/16" string spacing at the bridge, as popularized on 1980s models.

The L-2500 Series 750 is for players who want the full 3/4" spacing on the most iconic of G&L designs. Series 750 means there’s also a Wide-5 Saddle Lock bridge plate which houses five of the same saddles you’ll find on an L-2000. This bridge is all about maximizing string energy transfer to the body, especially that knockout B-string. The body shape draws on classic Fender Avenue forms, melding them into a fresh hit for the ages. And those big pickups are more than stretched out brutes: all the harmonic detail of the best MFD humbuckers speak in a clear voice over massive B-string energy. A graceful, early CLF/G&L headstock flows into a slim, rounded neck profile that’s rock solid thanks to a true dual-action truss rod and twin graphite reinforcement rods. Plus, you'll those big, beautifully machined CLF knobs popping against the sweeping chrome control plate that houses the Trig-Tone Preamp. Even those little color-coded mini toggle switch tips have outsized mojo. This is retro-futurism at its best.
