The C.L.F. Research series represents Leo Fender’s legacy for continuous innovation. These special instruments combine original concept designs with unique proprietary features that helped establish the building blocks and foundation for which all G&L guitars are made today.

All woods used to build our C.L.F. Research instruments are hand selected for beauty and optimal tone characteristics. The C.L.F. series is proudly built-in in Fullerton, California, using precision CNC technology, detailed hand-craftsmanship, and feature Leo Fender’s
most renowned hardware and electronic innovations.

The new CLF Research L•1000 brings back the best of the iconic passive G&L bass from 1980. Fans of the vintage G&L “wunkay” know.

It’s that rounded, fast shape of the neck combined with the slick feel of an old gloss finish. It’s the clean, modern aesthetic of the original CLF/G&L headstock.

It’s the tactile delight of those beautiful CLF Research knobs shimmering from an elegant chrome control plate. And of course, there’s the legendary punch of the L•1000’s MFD humbucker in OMG mode.

Now take all that goodness and pack it into the slimmer mid-90s L-Series body shape for added comfort and lower weight, and you can make it through that 3 hour gig with tone and style to spare.

And when you’re on the road, you can count on the neck to be more stable than those beloved vintage wunkays, with a modern dual-action truss rod and twin graphite stiffening rods. Add it all up and you’ve got the best of the vintage CLF vibe with the best of modern G&L elements.

The photos shown are the actual bass, and the bass weighs 9.1 lbs.
