Celebrating the Master – G & L Guitars, 40 years on
Celebrating the Master – G & L Guitars, 40 years on.
Fullerton, CA. – October 15, 2019 – G&L Guitars is celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2020 and couldn’t be more excited to celebrate Leo Fender and his legacy. His contributions to the musical instrument world are immeasurable. From his original Fender Musical Instruments to designing instruments for Music Man, and finally to founding his final company, G&L, which he started with George Fullerton in 1980.
As one of the industry’s most prolific pioneers, innovators and problem solvers, Leo stands head and shoulders above virtually everyone else in the world of guitars.
In 1966, Leo founded CLF research, an independent research and development company, created as a resource that could be used for any project Leo was interested in. Some of the developments Leo created at CLF Research were so interesting to him that he felt they merited being part of an exciting new brand so G&L Guitars was born.
Leo Fender worked at G&L up until his passing, doing what he loved best, on iconic Fender Avenue, in Fullerton, California. Surely, the birthplace of the modern electric guitar.
We will have some exciting new instruments and special editions in celebration of the 40th Anniversary at NAMM 2020. Come by and visit us at booth # 4833
