G&L 2500 vs. TRIBUTE G&L L2500

Recommended Posts

Anybody played both so he can speak about differences. I had an opportunity to play a Tribute L2500 and I was really amazed by its sound, playability and construction (It was natural finish, ash body, maple fretboard).

 

Is the higher cost of the original G&L reasonable? I ask this cause I can't imagine how much better it could be...

 

Thanks!

He does...I own a non-Tribute 2500, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Truly versatile, easy to play, sounds great, and mine has a killer finish. I've tried the Tributes in music stores, but not for long enough or with enough dedication to really give you an educated review. Sorry. But from what I've heard, they're pretty close to the same.

same exact pups and preamp, same type of bridge (made elsewhere to the same specs), different neck (not bi-cut). The oly complaint I hear is scratchy pots on some, but that's cheap to swap. The Premium Tribute has a solid Ash body while the USA has an Ash top on top of American Tilia (basswood :D ) to reduce weight.

On the 2500's it's really a very close call. Only difference on the 2000's that is worthwhile is getting a slimmer neck option on the MIA ones.
