G&L CLF Research L-2500 5 String Bass, Ruby Red Metallic With Case
Ruby Red Metallic L-2500
In the late 1970s, Clarence Leo Fender† was looking forward to launching his new G&L brand featuring his latest innovations including Magnetic Field Design pickups and the Saddle Lock bridge. Leo developed these technologies at his CLF™ Research company, and production of the new G&L instruments took place in the CLF Research factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, where G&L production continues today.
The new CLF Research L•2500 pays homage to its roots with classic details including the early CLF/G&L headstock and neck profile, beautifully reproduced aluminum CLF knobs, elegant-chrome control plate housing the Tri-Tone Preamp* and color-coded mini toggle switch tips.
This L-2500 is finished in Natural Ash with maple fingerboard, Vintage Gloss neck finish
*Tri•Tone Pre-Amp-Active Bass Pre-Amp Circuitry. Treble and Bass controls, Series/Parallel Selector Switch, and a 3-position switch for pre-amp ON/OFF and treble boost. Incredible sonic versatility for any playing style from poppin’ funk to high-tech-fusion to pounding metal.
Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-on™.
