Fullerton, CA (February 13, 2013) -- What would an ’83 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. After all, when inspiration comes from original
G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo’s Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band of
Susans’ Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.
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
From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, Fallout delivers with a great pairing of a Paul Gagon-designed
G&L Alnico P-90 neck pickup wound in-house and a Seymour Duncan JB bridge humbucker.
The look transcends the SC-2’s simplicity with a sweeping pickguard that complements the
body shape perfectly. Balancing out the aesthetics is a sleeker interpretation of the ‘80s-era
G&L headstock shape designed exclusively for the new Fallout.
MSRP for the Fallout starts at $1,400.
