G&L Fallout Belair Green

G&L Fallout

By | 2013, New Release | No Comments
What would a 1983 G&L SC-2 be if Leo Fender recreated it for today’s scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the new Fallout. The SC-2 was born as a cool looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today’s sophisticated textures and tones. Fallout shares the original Leo Fender-designed SC-2 body shape, comfortable, sustain-rich G&L Saddle Lock bridge and easy-playing medium-C-shape neck with a 12” radius and medium-jumbo frets.

The G&L Black Ice ASAT Classic Bluesboy is a factory-modded version of Leo Fender’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a Seymour Duncan SH-55 Seth Lover alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender. This latter-day Leo axe is shows its darker side thanks to a Nearly Naked™ (NENA) Black Ice finish over its swamp ash body.

G&L Superhawk Jerry Cantrell

By | 2013, Artist Signature Models, New Release | No Comments
It’s been well over two decades since a G&L Superhawk was last produced. Now G&L is proud to announce the launch of the Superhawk Jerry Cantrell signature model, available in two USA-made versions as well as a surprisingly affordable G&L Tribute Series version. This Superhawk starts out with the same soft Maple body and fast-playing hard rock Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard as the Rampage. It even shares the same Seymour Duncan JB pickup in the bridge position, but adds a Seymour Duncan ’59 in the neck position.

G&L Fiorano GTS Trans Red

G&L Fiorano GTS

By | 2012, New Release | No Comments
The G&L Fiorano GTS is an instrument that’s steeped in rock-guitar history but groundbreaking. The Fiorano GTS is the first set-neck, 25½”-scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar G&L has ever offered. It’s a striking instrument and, quite simply, it kicks ass. It joins the pioneering 24¾”-scale Ascari in G&L’s Tribute Series, and it delivers on its promise. The 24-fret neck and Gagon-designed humbuckers are made for brutal riffing and detuned/drop-tuned heaviness – but the Fiorino cleans up beautifully when asked.

G&L Special Collection ASAT Classic S

By | 2012, New Release | No Comments

The G&L ASAT Classic S is a factory-modded version of Leo Fender’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. Responding to requests from Nashville studio session players for a third pickup, the G&L crew began custom-building ASAT Classics with a single-coil S-500 Magnetic Field Design pickup created by Leo Fender in the middle position.

G&L Ascari GTS

By | 2011, New Release | No Comments

G&L’s done something special: We’ve created an instrument that’s steeped in guitar history yet strikingly new – The Ascari, the newest member of G&L’s Tribute Series. It was inspired by a recently uncovered prototype drawing done three decades ago by G&L co-founder George Fullerton, representing Leo Fender’s vision for G&L’s first 24¾” scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar. It was designed jointly by G&L’s longtime VP of engineering, Paul Gagon, and his close friend and former collaborator, Grover Jackson, founder of Jackson Guitars. Its DNA is full of rock guitar history.
