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.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
