G&L Introduces Tribute Series M-2000 and M-2500 Basses

Late last year, G&L upgraded their flagship bass line with the M-2000 and M-2500 basses. Now the company has announced Tribute Series versions of the instruments, which offer the models at lower price points.

G&L Tribute Series M-2000 Blueburst Bass

G&L Tribute Series M-2500 Honeyburst Bass

Both the 4- and 5-string basses come in two different configurations of either a honeyburst over swamp ash body with a rosewood fingerboard or gloss black over a basswood body with a maple fingerboard. The M-2000 is also available with a swamp ash body and either 3-tone sunburst or blueburst finishes.

The basses are stocked with G&L’s U.S. made MFD humbucking pickups, which are paired with an 18v preamp with Volume, Pan, Bass, Mid, and Treble controls. For hardware, the company uses traditional open-back tuners and a Leo Fender-designed G&L Saddle-Lock bridge.

The G&L Tribute Series M-2000 and M-2500 are available with street prices of $973 and $1,045, respectively. For more info, check out the G&L Guitars website.
