G&L Announces Tribute Series Fallout Guitar

Following the release of their Fallout model, G&L has announced a new version for their Tribute series.


Fullerton, CA (July 31, 2013) -- Thirty rock’n’roll years ago, Leo Fender introduced the G&L SC-2, a cool-looking, light and comfortable axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and never miss a beat.  Earlier this year, G&L introduced the Fallout, a dramatic interpretation of the SC that’s quickly becoming one of the most popular G&L guitars made in Leo’s Fender Avenue workshop.

Now there’s a G&L Tribute Series Fallout to deliver all the fun at a price that’s more accessible to gigging musicians. It starts with a mahogany body loaded with Paul Gagon-designed pickups – a neck P-90 for rich jangle and a splittable bridge humbucker for meat, grind and spank. Leo’s own beefy G&L Saddle Lock bridge maximizes sustain and improves articulation, while a comfortable medium-C neck with 12” radius makes this axe feel like an old friend.
The original SC-2 guitars were loved and modded by post-punk visionaries including Devo’s Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans’ Robert Poss. Inspired by these tweaked axes from G&L’s early years, the Tribute Series Fallout looks as fun as it is to play. All with the exceptional build quality that G&L’s Tribute Series is known for. 
MSRP for the G&L Tribute Series Fallout is $572.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

​Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & a '59 Burst!
Johnny Cash Guitarist Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & John Carter Cash's 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst!

This 1953 Fender Esquire belonged to Luther Perkins, who was a member of Cash’s first recording bands and played on all of the Man in Black’s foundational recordings for Sun Records—likely with this guitar. Perkins played this instrument during the period when Cash classics from “I Walk the Line” to “Folsom Prison Blues” were cut. John Carter Cash bought this 1959 Gibson Les Paul at Gruhn’s in Nashville. It has a neck that is atypically slim for its vintage and appears as part of the psychedelic guitar interplay on the Songwriter song “Drive On.”
