Player's Perspective

The L-2500 combines unmatched comfort with versatile, powerful electronics, creating one of the best all-purpose 5 string basses on the market. The neck and fretboard feel incredibly smooth. Open-position grooves are easy, and the upper register is very forgiving on your playing hand. Tone-wise, this bass manages to provide unlimited sonic options without offering tons of stuff you'll never use. The extra low end always stays nice and tight. You can dial in your exact sound and be as specific as you want, whether you play blues, metal, jazz or rock. Read on for specifics.

Item Details

This G&L USA L-2500 features a swamp ash body with a blueburst finish. The maple neck is carved to G&L's modern 5-string 'C' shape, and it has a rosewood board with a 12" radius and 21 PLEK dressed medium jumbo frets. Electronically, this bass sports not only a pair of MFD humbuckers, but also G&L's flexible Tri-Tone system. There are three mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel function, and active/passive operation. The knobs are volume, treble and bass. You can dial in every kind of sound imaginable on this bass. The Saddle-Lock bridge transfers string energy to the body more efficiently than standard bridges, and it also makes for quick and easy string changes. If you're looking for an American-made, all-purpose 5 string bass, the L-2500 needs to be on your radar.
