Contemporary Update of a Leo Fender Classic

Although he created some of the most enduring electric guitar and bass designs of all time, Leo Fender was never one to rest on his laurels. He was driven to innovate, and, for that reason, he launched the CLF Research company in the late 1970s to explore new designs and develop new technologies. One of the early instruments to emerge from the CLF Research laboratory was the L-2000 electric bass. A dual-humbucker version of the L-1000 bass, the L-2000 included cutting-edge features like G&L’s Magnetic Field Design humbucking pickups, Saddle-Lock bridge, and Tri-Tone control system. And, a decade and a half later, G&L applied that design to a spectacular 5-string model, the L-2500. The G&L CLF Research L-2500 keeps everything that made the original L-2000s and L-2500s so sought after, such as the early CLF headstock and slim, rounded neck, but it adds some modern updates, including a dual-action truss rod and twin graphite stiffening rods. Bassists at Citymusic love the look and feel of the G&L CLF Research L-2500, a stunning re-creation of an iconic bass that was far ahead of its time.

Classic looks and exceptional feel

Pointing to G&L’s history of innovation, the CLF Research L-2500 combines the stunning chrome hardware, slim rounded neck, and original headstock shape of the early-1980s L-2000s, with G&L’s comfortable, lightweight 1990s body style. It represents the best of what players expect from an L-2500, with a classic look and feel that has a surprisingly contemporary edge. When you step on stage with the CLF Research L-2500 slung around your shoulders, don’t be surprised if all eyes are on you!

Magnetic Field Design pickups bring the thunder

The CLF Research L-2500 owes much of its bone-rattling tone to its two Magnetic Field Design humbuckers. Unique to G&L, Magnetic Field Design pickups are built around a ceramic bar magnet laid under each coil, and they feature individually adjustable pole pieces to give you complete control over your tone. Their inherent sound is warm and deep, with punchy high-mids and an open top-end. And, with double the output per wind over standard designs, Magnetic Field Design pickups bring the thunder.

Tri-Tone control system offers boundless tone

Because G&L knows players can’t get enough when it comes to toneshaping, they outfitted the CLF Research L-2500 with the versatile Tri-Tone control system. Created for ultimate flexibility, the Tri-Tone system offers nearly limitless tone control options, with mini-toggle switches for selecting a pickup, switchable signal routing options, passive and active modes, and high-quality pots for volume, treble, and bass. No matter your genre or style, the CLF Research L-2500 has your tone!

Saddle-Lock bridge increases resonance and sustain

Another G&L innovation has found its way into the CLF Research L-2500 — the G&L Saddle-Lock bridge. The Saddle-Lock bridge reduces the lateral movement of the saddle pieces by tightening an Allen screw on the side of the bridge. Additionally, the Saddle-Lock bridge has a solid protrusion on its backside that is sunk firmly into the instrument’s body wood. Together, these two features make it easier for string energy to travel into the body and translate into a rich, resonant, and sustaining sound.
