Specialty Traders is an Authorized G&L Dealer! G&L USA CLF L-2500 S750 Ruby Red Metallic 5 String Bass & Case #0075. 9.00 lbs, 12.80 Oz. The new Wide5 of Fender Avenue is the biggest thing since Leos L2000 hit back in 81.We call it the G&L L2500 Series 750 and its packing everything that makes the L2000 and L2500 icons. The Series 750 is a fiver with a full 3/4-inch string spacing at the bridge, just like Leos four-string basses thats why we call it a Wide5. After all, its in the name: Leos four-strings have three-quarter-inch string spacing, so weve got 3/4 > 0.750 > 19.03mm. When someone says a five-string has nineteen millimeter string spacing, thats just a metric conversion of Leos original four-string spec, so here on Fender Avenue its gotta be Seven-Fifty. The CLF Research L2500 and other G&L fivers continue with narrower 11/16 string spacing at the bridge, as popularized on 1980s for fivers. The L2500 Series 750 is for players who want the full three-quarter inch spacing on the most iconic of G&L designs.
Series 750 means theres a new Wide-5 Saddle Lock bridge plate housing five of the same saddles youll find on an L2000. This new bridge is all about maximizing string energy transfer to the body especially that knockout B-string. The new body shape draws on classic Fender Avenue forms, melding them into a fresh hit for the ages. Thats a sweet story in itself, as Series 750 arrives exactly forty years after the G&L L2000 did.
And those big pickups are more than stretched out brutes: all the harmonic detail of the best MFD humbuckers speak in a clear voice over massive B-string energy. Sure, Series 750 is a brand new model but classic Fender Avenue details are everywhere. That graceful early CLF/G&L headstock flows into a slim, rounded neck profile thats rock solid thanks to a true dual-action truss rod and twin graphite reinforcement rods. And those big, beautiful machined CLF knobs popping against the sweeping chrome control plate. Even those little color-coded mini toggle switch tips have outsized mojo.
