G&L Basses - The Current Tribute Lineup

This is the place for many long-running stickies that aren't as timely as they once were. They're still worth having near the top of something, but not when that something gets cluttered with too many stickies.

Hi Ken,

Are there any plans to release an ASAT Bass Tribute?

I could guarantee you 1 sale!

Kyle! Welcome!

No plans for a Trbute ASAT bass that I'm aware of.

Hawk the used market. USA basses can usually be found.

Thanks for the reply Ken.

I bought an L2000 brand new last week - I have been holding out for an ASAT to come up here in Aus for a reasonable price however with the Aussie dollar the way it was it was cheaper to buy a new L2000 than buy a second hand ASAT !!

Which models if any have the necks reinforced? Hopefully the L-2500...I have been looking for an affordable 5-string.

Not sure what you mean by "reinforced". I believe the construction of the Tribute necks is identical to the US made ones. You can get more details at the G&L website: http://www.glguitars.com

By the way, I love my Tribute L-2500. IMO, the best value, hands down, for a bass under $1000.

Should be Indonesia. Early Tributes were made in Korea and there are a couple Tribbie guitars made in China.

Walnut Satin isn't a current color, so I'll guess you've seen these online or in a store. I don't believe there is any difference between them. Someone probably typed the "Premium" description to gain attention, or did a copy & paste from something else.

Nut width is 1 3/4"

Thomastik-Infield Jazz flatwound string on a l2500 tribute----how much do you think that big .135 b string will force the nut to be adjusted? and do you foresee any problems with it fitting the bridge?

Depends on the bass. I didn't have to file the nut on my US L-2500.
