celebration of G&L's 25th Anniversary, the G&L Custom
Creations team designed this special guitar to feature Leo Fender's
first pickup design for G&L, the Magnetic Field Design®
humbucker. These pickups first appeared in 1980 on the very first
G&L guitar model, the F-100, then appeared again in different
specification in the rare short-scale G-200. During G&L's
early years, many of those F-100 guitars featured mahogany bodies,
the tonewood the factory craftsmen prefer with these pickups.
two decades the Custom Creations team is proud to bring back these
pickups, specially wound to complement the mahogany used in both
the body and neck. The rich finish is custom blended to match the
aged appearance of a 1981 F-100 owned by G&L, while front and
rear contours and a control layout used for the ASAT Super rounds
out the styling. The result is the Limited Edition G&L 25th
Anniversary, of which there will be only two hundred fifty made.
