OVERVIEW

A familiar silhouette with distinctive-looking and great-sounding pickups.

The G&L Comanche is Leo's final word on the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe. Fact is, the first thing you'll notice about the Comanche is the distinctive shape of the Magnetic Field Design Z-Coil pickups designed by Leo Fender himself. These pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end while offering a robust bottom end, all without any 60-cycle hum.

You'll find plenty of power in the Z-coil pickups, but what's surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the Comanche's PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system. What's more, the Comanche 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.

Making the most of this delicious combo is Leo's 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.

    Comments about G&L Comanche Electric Guitar:

    I cannot stress enough how clear the pickups on this guitar sound, all the while retaining so much power in the bottom end. You can have chimey clean highs, and incredible low end. Blissfully articulate.

    The pickup selection is much simpler than it appears. Let me remind you, this is NOT a Fender, this is a G&L. Yes it was designed by Leo, but its not the vintage instrument that is what we now call a Fender. If you want to be stuck in the past... well lets face it, buy a g&L legacy over a fender, Legacy's sound better and you can get that vintage sound so much more easily; The comanche it isn't trying to be that iconic vintage instrument, it is much more, MUCH MORE. Albeit it can sound like a vintage strat, but you have to dial it in. G&L aren't baby sitter instruments, they want you to actually play around with the tone knobs. Don't dare try to dime everything on the guitar and say "hey that's it". If that's what you want, this isn't the guitar for you. If you're the kind of person that says, "what if?" then this is the one for you. The Comanche will growl, it'll whisper, it will serenade you, but it won't read you a bedtime story. You'll have to play around selecting pickups and dialing the tone knobs; and when you do, you will be infinitely rewarded.

    Hard rock, country, pop, funk, Latin, it will do it all, and yes even metal. The z-coils are where it's at, and I don't think I'll ever look back. I considered buying a fender again, but then, i realized, I probably had a fever. Seriously though, if you want "that" vintage tone.... look for the "that" guitar that made "that" vintage sound. It's that simple. I just don't see the sense in doing that. This guitar allows the artist in you to come alive, not just act as a cover artist. Feel and quality rival fender too. Modern Classic neck profile is a bit wider, but for finger picking, its a dream and at lower costs. contact a dealer to order one spec'd as you want. Go for it! The tones it provides are amazing!!!

    Comments about G&L Comanche Electric Guitar:

    The quality is good. A top end fender this model can't beat the quality. You will enjoy the sound. Emotionally it will allow you to go to record highs. I loved it immediately. I am spoiled brat and Own a Prs
    Santana PE and CE-24. I love this guitar. You will love it to. The action is great. It has a very bright sound. The controls are easy to use. It has a very nice finish. You will enjoy owning it. I love it. If you like Buddy Hollies music and 1960 rock and roll you will be up late at night playing this guitar. It is worth the money.
