G&L Tribute Fallout in Mint Green

Description

G&L is the final legacy of legendary guitar builder Leo Fender. Creator of so many iconic instruments, Leo continued to re-work these designs and create even more when he founded G&L in 1979.

The Fallout is a modern reimagining of Leo Fender’s SC-2 design from 1983. This stripped back rock machine is perfect for high gain riffage but can also handle a variety of within one simple, affordable guitar.

Body and Neck

This guitar features a mahogany body which is known for it’s sustain and has the added effect of adding a warmer tone to the guitar.

The Fallout has a comfortable “Medium C” neck profile which is easy to play and has a 12” fingerboard radius. This is a more modern radius which is comfortable to fret chords on and is far more suited to playing leads and bends than the more curved, vintage radius fingerboards.

Electronics

This guitar has a P90 in the neck for thick single-coil sounds and a humbucker in the bridge for powerful biting tones. These pickups, with the 3-way pickup selector, offer a wider array of tones from smooth blues through to higher gain rock styles. The humbucker is also coil-splittable adding even greater versatility to this guitar with the ability to emulate single coil tones in the bridge.

Here's What G&L Say About the Tribute Fallout

Post-Punk Radiation Morphs Leo Fender’s SC-2

What would an ’83 G&L SC-2™ be if Leo Fender recreated it for today’s scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the new Fallout. After all, when inspiration comes from original G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo’s Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans’ Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.

The SC-2 was born as a cool looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today’s sophisticated textures and tones.

Fallout shares the original Leo Fender-designed SC-2 body shape, comfortable, sustain-rich G&L Saddle Lock bridge and easy-playing medium-C-shape neck with a 12” radius and medium-jumbo frets.

From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, the G&L Tribute Series Fallout delivers with a great pairing of Paul Gagon-designed Alnico pickups: a gorgous P-90 and meaty humbucker splittable via a push/pull tone pot.

The look transcends the SC-2’s simplicity with a sweeping pickguard that complements the body shape perfectly. Balancing out the aesthetics is a sleeker interpretation of the ‘80s-era G&L headstock shape designed exclusively for the Fallout.
