G&L Guitars Announce the CLF Research L-2000 Bass

G&L Guitars have introduced the CLF Research L-2000 Bass, an instrument that harkens back to the Leo Fender’s original innovations with his CLF Research company in the late 1970s. Fender’s creations with CLF went on to be the foundation of G&L’s instruments, including the Magnetic Field Design pickup and saddle lock bridge.

“The new CLF Research L-2000 is a fully modern “2k” that pays homage to its roots with classic details including the early CLF/G&L headstock and neck profile, beautifully reproduced CLF knobs and ’81 control plate, and color-coded mini toggle switch tips,” G&L writes. “Thin urethane finish choices are Candy Apple Red or Jet Black over basswood, Natural Ash, and faded 3-Tone Sunburst over okoume.”

G&L’s CLF Research L-2000 Bass will be shipping soon with price points of $1,700 and $1,800 depending on finishes.
