G & L USA GearHounds Special M-2500 5 String Bass Guitar - HoneyAle

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 has 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.

Leos 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&Ls 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 theres 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
  • The return of the classic C-shape 1 5/8 neck, discontinued by G&L in the 1980s

For slapping, rolling back some highs and dialing up some lows, coupled with a mid-range boost, magnifies the intensity that Leos 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 thats exactly what youll find in the new M-series package.

This M-2500 is especially tasty with its Nearly Naked (NENA) Honey Ale finish over its swamp ash body. Its rosewood-capped hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its contemporary 12 radius and Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. Whats more, the M-2500 features an innovative Leo Fender-designed Saddle-Lock bridge to transfer string energy right into the body end-grain for an incredibly resonant instrument. The moment you open the luxurious custom-fit Tolex hardshell case made by G&G Quality Case, youll be greeted with an instrument of timeless elegance and a delicious aroma thatll have your pulse racing.
