Detailed Description

G & L USA GearHounds Special S-500 Electric Guitar - HoneyAle

The G&L S-500 debuted in 1983 as Leos own evolution of the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, delivering innovations including the Dual-Fulcrum vibrato and Magnetic Field Design single-coil pickups, each designed by Leo Fender himself. These MFD pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end and robust bottom end, all without losing midrange focus.

Youll find plenty of punch in the MFD pickups, but whats surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the S-500s PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system. Whats more, the S-500 includes a mini-toggle expander switch to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASAT Special. Talk about versatile! This S-500s Dual-Fulcrum vibrato is equipped with forged brass saddles, supporting a design which allows bending up or down with a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm.

This S-500 is especially tasty with its Nearly Naked (NENA) Honey Ale finish over its swamp ash body, tastefully accented with a Tortoise Shell Pickguard. Its rosewood-capped hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its 12" radius lets you bend notes deeply and its Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious custom-fit Tolex hardshell case made by G&G Quality Case, youll be greeted with an instrument of timeless elegance and a delicious aroma thatll have your pulse racing.
