Like the L-1000, the early L-2000 was available with several wood options including ash and mahogany for bodies and maple, ebony and rosewood for fingerboards.  The example shown here has a mahogany/maple combination which is very popular with collectors and players alike.  The neck has a finish not found on many G&Ls from this time period, namely, Birchwood Casey "True-Oil".
