G&L Introduces L-2500 Series 750 Bass

G&L L-2500 Series 750 Tangerine Bass

G&L has unveiled the L-2500 Series 750 bass, which marks their first five-string model to have a 19mm string spacing at the bridge. As such, it features a new “wide 5” Saddle Lock bridge to create a wider, more traditional string spacing typically found on four-string basses.

The bass also has a new body that draws on classic Fender Avenue forms, G&L states. “Series 750 is a fresh model yet classic Fender Avenue details are everywhere. The graceful early CLF/G&L headstock flows into a slim, rounded neck profile supported by a true dual-action truss rod and twin graphite reinforcement rods. Authentic 1980 cues continue with chunky CLF machined knobs and purposeful control plate, while color-coded mini toggle switch tips complete the Fender Avenue vibes of the late ‘70s to early ‘80s.”

All those standard features are applied to four variants: blueburst over Swamp Ash with a maple fingerboard, Tobacco Sunburst over okoume with a Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard, Ruby Red Metallic over basswood with a Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard, and Tangerine Metallic over basswood with a Caribbean Rosewood fingerboard.

The Series 750 also has modified MFD humbuckers that capture “full harmonic fidelity while capturing deep B-string energy.” Hear it in action in this demo video:

The G&L L-2500 Series 750 is shipping now starting at $1,899.
