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-2500 pays homage to its roots with classic details including the early CLF/G&L headstock and neck profile, beautifully reproduced aluminum CLF knobs, elegant-chrome control plate, and color-coded mini toggle switch tips.
