The new instrument adds G&L's PTB system which allows bass roll-off, a big advantage in high-gain situations.

Fullerton, CA (March 28, 2019) -- G&L is pleased to announce the addition of the Fullerton Deluxe Skyhawk HH to its range of made in Fullerton of instruments.

The Fullerton Deluxe Skyhawk HH delivers classic covered bucker tones kicked up a notch with pairing of a G&L AS4255C in the neck position and AW4368C at the bridge.  That's ASAT Deluxe territory, but Skyhawk HH adds G&L's PTB system which allows bass roll-off, a big advantage in high gain situations like cranked fuzz pedals. Plus the push/pull coil tap serves up convincing single coil tones that further expand the potential of this versatile axe.

The Fullerton Deluxe Skyhawk HH is available in:

  • Old School Tobacco Sunburst over Okoume, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard, Vintage Gloss neck finish
  • Surf Green over Alder body, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard, Vintage Gloss neck finish

The Fullerton Deluxe Skyhawk HH is now shipping with a street price starting around $1600 for Old School Tobacco Sunburst and $1500 for Surf Green.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
