Don't really want to sell this but I've finally accepted that when I think "bass" I think "passive Fender" and I can't justify keeping this one, as good as it is. Bought brand new by me circa 2014. I believe that the Tribute M-2000 has been discontinued by G&L and from what I can see this finish was one of the harder to find ones. £450 seems a sensible starting point given the cost when new, as well as the silly priced ones I've seen elsewhere.
G&L M-2000 Tribute GTS TB - bit of a mouthfull, but essentially its a Tribute M-2000, in a lovely translucent black finish (a nightmare to photograph ), with top-binding as well as a lovely carved/shaped top a bit like you get on Fender aerodyne models. Black headstock.
The electronics are seriously powerful - an active preamp (unlike the L2000 there is no passive mode), with volume, pan, and 3-band boost/cut EQ with centre detents. Two humbucking MFD pickups. There's a lot of sounds in here but the controls are very simple to understand. 34" bolt-on neck.
Neck is really nice, smaller than the baseball bat you get on the L2000. Currently strung with some fender roundwounds that have hardly been played.
I would really rather not post this, so collection from Burntisland, Fife - or can potentially meet in/around the West End of Edinburgh during the week. If you really want it and you're not local then I might be able to find a box and arrange a courier at cost. Hit me up if you're interested.

(I really don't "want" trades - but would potentially be interested in something jazz / jaguar flavoured with either 4 or 5 strings, part-ex against some Smallsound/Bigsound pedals - TAFM or F*ck overdrive, or maybe a micro/mini bass amp head)
Selling my L2000 Tribute. Always wanted one of these since I saw Martyn le Noble playing the more expensive version.
Plenty of demos of this bass on YouTube. Loads of varied sounds on tap but I've realised over the last year I'm obviously a bit of a simpleton, and prefer basses I can just wack the dials on full and play. Despite all the variations the pickups give you, I seem to be endlessly fiddling and adjusting my sound rather than just enjoying it and settling on one that works in my band. Never mind. .......my problem.
Its a shame cause I love the neck on this bass. It's quite chunky, but with a great satin finish. Hardware is great for the price esp the bridge. Only change I will be making before selling is refitting the strap buttons it came with.
I bought this as B stock so one picture shows the ding the bass had when it turned up at PMT prior to shipping to me. It's not remotely sharp or dangerous and actually quite smooth to the touch. A bit of the lacquer has chipped off but it's in the position of you forearm and mostly against your belly when playing and not a problem or noticeable in any way.
Weight exactly 4 kg on our scales.
UK shipping fine at buyers expense and risk. I have a good quality bass box it can be packed in. No problems.
Collection in line with social distance rules fine too.
Not really up for trades at the moment.
