G&l L2000 USA *SOLD*
£750
Margate

Recommended Posts

USA G&L L2000. This is a 90s example of Leo Fender's classic design. This bass feels like an old 70s Fender in terms of feel but without the dismal build quality. It's an extremely well built tone monster with the ability to sit perfectly in any setting. 

Ash body, maple neck and board, MFD pickups, active circuit with bass and treble controls (which interestingly also works passively without a battery installed!), series/parallel switch, G&l Flightcase. The bass weighs 4.2kg.

Why on Earth would you want to sell it Jay ........?

I've stepped down from my bands and have little desire to play, mate. Plus I have another L2000 and the Pino Jag to keep me entertained if I get the urge in the future.. Hope you're all good.

I'm a recent convert to G&L (Tributes) - get a lot of bass for your money.

Sorry to hear that mate, you played in some great bands. Hope all's well with Miranda and the kids, hope we can catch up one day when neither of us are gigging and have a beer or two.

Also wish I could justify buying that lovely bass :)

Very nice.

 

These older G&L's - particularly those from the pre-1992 'Leo era' - are top-quality instruments. I like the clean look afforded by the top-loading SaddleLock* bridge and no skunk stripe on the neck**. Very deep contour on the body and you can guarantee that the neck won't have any gaps around it in the pocket.

These are still widely under-appreciated and so are very good value. Good luck with the sale.

*Originally named Locktight, the name was changed to SaddleLock in 1992 due to the similarity to the Loctite brand of adhesives.

**The necks were finished by hand until about 2005 so there may be slight variations between them.

Yeah I thought you might buy another one... does it sound a lot different with the different neck...?

If I could offload one of my other basses I would be well up for this. G&L build quality is superb, hence I have kept one of my G&Ls for over 30 years now. GLWTS.

It would appear that you bought the wrong bass 😁

This looks lovely. If someone wants to sell me their SB-2 to fund this, be my guest!

A pretty niche strategy, but all the best with it 😉
