Scratch & Dent: This bass has a finish crack on the edge of the body, and also has another one at the neck joint. It may also have some very light scratches that won't show up in photos.
Three decades ago, the G&L L-2000â„¢ bass served notice that company founder Leo Fenderâ€ 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-2000â„¢ and M-2500 harness that power with a sonic palate that will surprise and delight new and die-hard G&L fans alike.
Leoâ€™s MFDâ„¢ 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 for them. 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 thereâ€™s even more:
â€¢ Primary volume and pan controls to explore the full range of sounds available between the two pickups
â€¢ 3-band EQ with peripherally placed, center-detent, reduced-diameter knobs
â€¢ An impeccable, familiar â€œfeelâ€ of the instrument in the hands and on the shoulder
â€¢ The return of the classic â€œCâ€-shape 1 5/8â€ 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 Leoâ€™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 thatâ€™s exactly what youâ€™ll find in the new M-Series package. Truly, itâ€™s the evolution of Leoâ€™s revolution.
