OVERVIEW

A cool-looking, comfortable and light axe that can be thrashed mercilessly.

What would an '83 G&L SC-2 be if Leo Fender recreated it for today's scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the new Fallout. After all, when inspiration comes from original G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo's Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans' Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.

The SC-2 was born as a cool-looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today's sophisticated textures and tones.

Fallout shares the original Leo Fender-designed SC-2 body shape, comfortable, sustain-rich G&L Saddle Lock bridge and easy-playing medium-C-shape neck with a 12" radius and medium-jumbo frets.

From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, Fallout delivers with a great pairing of a Paul Gagon-designed G&L Alnico P-90 neck pickup wound in-house and a Seymour Duncan JB bridge humbucker.

The look transcends the SC-2's simplicity with a sweeping pickguard that complements the body shape perfectly. Balancing out the aesthetics is a sleeker interpretation of the ˜80s-era G&L headstock shape designed exclusively for the Fallout.

Comments about G&L Fallout Electric Guitar:

The range of tones you can get out of this guitar is amazing. In the bridge position, you get that hot dual hum bucker sound. Pull the knob up and you get a nice rich single coil tone. Switch to the neck pickup and you get a classic slightly twangy P-90 tone. The finish is beautiful and it comes with a high quality case.

I have a couple of minor complaints. First, the action was pretty high. There was a lot of relief in the neck. It's not a big deal, but buyer beware, you might have to get a set up first thing. I have it with a luthier getting that done right now. It wasn't terrible, but it was medium-high.

Next, the pickups are wound a little on the hot side. To get tones that I like, I have to roll off the volume a little. Doing this may cause a lose in treble so I might put a treble bleed in it to allow the treble to still come through at a lesser volume. It's just something to be aware of.

Over all though, I don't regret my purchase at all. It's a solid and beautiful guitar with a very wide range of tones. Look it up on the G&L website and they have a demo video.
