G&L Unveils Black Ice Collection Basses

G&L has unveiled a new line of instruments labeled the “Black Ice Collection”. The new basses and guitars feature a “Black Ice” finish, which incorporates the company’s Nearly Naked (NENA) finish with a sleek matte black base and silver highlights in the body’s wood grain. Introduced last year, NENA is a super thin finish the company says promotes body resonance. The instruments come without a pickguard in order to show more of the body.

G&L Black Ice M-2000 Bass

Basses in the Black Ice Collection include the M-2000 and M-2500. Distinguished as four and five-string models, both basses are built with a 2-piece swamp ash body, a hard rock maple neck, and a maple fingerboard. Electronics include a pair of G&L MFD humbuckers and a G&L M-spec 18v preamp with a 3-band EQ.

G&L Black Ice M-2500 Bass

Available for a limited time, the G&L Black Ice M-2000 and M-2500 will be shipping this month with suggested retail prices of $1,900 and $2,050. For more info, check out the G&L website.
