G&L S500-SO Tribute S500 Electric Guitar Rosewood Fingerboard
G&L Tribute Sâ¢500? Electric Guitar in Sonic Blue FinishThe G&L Sâ¢500â¢ debuted in 1982 as Leoâs own evolution of the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, delivering innovations including the Dual-Fulcrumâ¢ vibrato and Magnetic Field Designâ¢ single-coil pickups, each designed by Leo Fender himself. These MFDâ¢ pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end and robust bottom end, all without losing midrange focus.Youâll find plenty of punch in the MFD pickups, but what?s surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the Sâ¢500âs PTBâ¢ (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups. Whatâs more, the G&L TributeÂ® Series Sâ¢500 includes a push-pull expander switch on the treble pot to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASATâ¢ Special. Talk about versatility!The new G&L Tribute Series Sâ¢500 features one of Leoâs favorite pairings: the power of MFD pickups mellowed by the high porosity of a nato body. Making the most of this delicious combo is Leoâs Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a work of engineering art which allows bending up or down with unsurpassed stability, while offering a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm.Leoâs forward-looking spirit is clearly reflected in the Sâ¢500, a guitar he designed for players who share that spirit. And now, itâs available at a price within reach of every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, youâll never look back.
