The Fullerton Deluxe Doheny® bundles some of the most time-honored option combinations from the G&L Option Order menu.
The Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design™ jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. Naturally, these new pickups will invite comparison to Leo’s jumbo MFD™ ASAT® Special pickups, given they employ a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay. But Doheny’s MFD pickups are more about jangle than twang, just as they should be for a guitar like this and with the added P.T.B. System* for maximum versatility. With a classic jazz bobbin aperture wrapped with traditional Formvar wire, these pickups just might be the approach Leo would have taken had he been with us a few years longer.
The Fullerton Deluxe Doheny features a Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a work of engineering art which allows bending up or down with unsurpassed stability, while offering a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm.
The Fullerton Deluxe Doheny is available in the following finishes:
3-Tone Sunburst over Alder, 3-ply tortoise pickguard, maple or Caribbean rosewood fingerboard
Matcha Green over Alder, 3-ply tortoise pickguard, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard
**P.T.B.-Passive Treble and Bass Controls-Dramatically more effective than a standard tone control, treble and bass frequencies can be separately cut with this exclusive passive style circuitry via two separate tone knobs.
Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic CLF Research / G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-on™.
