    Product Description

    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 current Fullerton Deluxe S-500 model 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 USA S-500 also comes supercharged with G&L's flexible PTB Tone System (passive treble and bass controls) as well as a mini-toggle "Expander" switch that provides additional pickup combinations. Not many contemporary guitars are more versatile than this!

    Key Features

    • Western Sugar Pine Body — A lightweight timber with striking resonance; giving the pickups an even more lively and vibrant character. Features a comfortable rear contour.
    • Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
    • 'Modern Classic' Neck Profile — A fairly slim shape with a mild taper from 0.820" at 1st fret to 0.870" at the 12th fret. Enhanced with a slippery satin finish for fast playability.
    • Medium Jumbo Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
    • G&L MFD Single-Coil Pickups — A unique, Leo Fender concept considered a marked improvement over the traditional single-coil. This design transfers the magnetic field to the top of the pickup rather than the middle and features a ceramic magnet; yielding more output, greater balance and less noise!
    • 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 Mini-Toggle Switch — 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!
    • Dual-Fulcrum Tremolo — Another Leo Fender innovation! This two-pivot, low-friction design provides a smooth and "silky" feel that allows you to bend notes up as well as down. The hardened steel bridge plate pivots on knife-edge bolts which are set into massive brass inserts anchored into the body; yielding brilliant sustain and resonance.
    • G&L Deluxe Gig Bag — Included is a sturdy, lightweight and water-resistant soft case that sports a pair of shoulder straps for convenient travel.
