G&L Introduces the CLF Research L-2000 Bass

The new bass is a fully modern "2k" that pays homage to its roots with classic details.

Fullerton, CA In the late 1970s, Clarence Leo Fender was looking forward to launching his new G&L brand featuring his latest innovations including Magnetic Field Design pickups and the Saddle Lock bridge. Leo developed these technologies at his CLF Research company, and production of the new G&L instruments took place in the CLF Research factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, where G&L production continues today.

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. Thin urethane finish choices are Candy Apple Red or Jet Black over basswood, Natural Ash, and faded 3-Tone Sunburst over okoume.

The CLF Research L-2000 is around $1,700 street for Candy Apple Red or Jet Black, and around $1,800 street for Natural Ash or 3-Tone Sunburst.
