Five Models in G&L’s Exclusive Nearly Naked™ Black Ice Finish


Fullerton,  CA – October 22, 2012 – The new Black Ice Collection takes G&L’s  Nearly Naked (NENA) finish in a whole new direction  with a bad-ass look for players ready to grab the spotlight. As with  the 2012 Special Collection, Black Ice models feature G&L’s  newly-developed NENA finish for enhanced body resonance, but his time  around, no pickguard comes between your eyes and the dramatic  Black Ice finish.

Having  worked with a variety of staining and burnishing techniques, G&L  craftsmen developed the Nearly Naked finish blending  old-world techniques with modern finish technology. While the NENA  vision was all about highlighting the natural beauty of swamp ash,  artists never stop exploring. Before long G&L master painter Malcolm  McLamore had developed Black Ice, a sleek matte black  base with silver highlights embedded in the sweeping grain of the body  wood.

G&L’s  new Black Ice Collection includes five popular guitar and bass models:   ASAT Classic Bluesboy, ASAT Deluxe II, Legacy Deluxe, M-2000  and M-2500 basses, all featuring two-piece swamp ash bodies, Eastern  maple necks with maple fingerboards and ultra-thin Nearly Naked Black  Ice finish. Like all USA-made G&L instruments, PLEK fret leveling  provides the ultimate in feel and playability.  The  G&L Black Ice Collection is proudly made in the USA at G&L’s  factory on Fender Ave. in Fullerton, California.

G&L  Black Ice models will begin shipping in October 2012 with the following  suggested retail prices:  ASAT Classic Bluesboy $1,650, ASAT  Deluxe II $1,800, Legacy Deluxe $1,650, M-2000 Bass $1,900 and M-2500  Bass $2,050.
