Introduced in 1982, the G&L S-500 was Leo Fender’s own evolution of the iconic single-coil loaded, double-cutaway electric guitar that he designed in the early '50s. Over 40 years later, G&L's affordable Tribute Series S-500 takes that re-imagined instrument and modernises it even further!
Featuring super-quiet, Leo Fender-designed MFD ('Magnetic Field Design') pickups and an ultra-smooth Dual-Fulcrum tremolo, the Tribute S-500 also comes supercharged with G&L's flexible PTB Tone System (passive treble and bass controls) as well as a push/pull "Expander" function that provides additional pickup combinations. Not many contemporary guitars are more versatile than this!
- Nato Body — This gorgeous timber looks and sounds similar to Mahogany, so you can expect deep lows and a rich mid-range!
- Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
- Medium "C" Maple Neck — Comfortable neck shape offers superb playability for both modern and traditional guitarists; enhanced with a slippery satin finish.
- Rosewood Fingerboard — Dark and silky material adds mid-range warmth into the tonal mix.
- Medium Jumbo Nickel Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
- Dual-Fulcrum Tremolo — Low-friction design improves tuning stability and provides a smooth vibrato arm action.
- G&L MFD Pickups — Considered a marked improvement over traditional single-coils, G&L's 'Magnetic Field Design' pickups (wound in the USA) deliver more output and possess a balanced frequency response with fuller lows and articulate highs.
- PTB Tone System — Gives you two master tone controls, one that decreases the treble like a typical tone knob, and one that decreases the low-end. It's like having a built-in, passive 2-band EQ!
- Expander Switch — Push/pull tone knob adds two additional pickup selections when used in conjunction with the 5-position switch; enabling combinations of the neck and bridge single-coils for a T-style configuration, or all three pickups together!
