OVERVIEW

Ready to cover today’s sophisticated textures and tones.

The 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. It comes with a great pairing of Paul Gagon-designed Alnico pickups: a gorgous P-90 and meaty humbucker splittable via a push/pull tone pot. 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. Case sold separately.

FEATURES
  • Bolt-on construction
  • 25-1/2" scale
  • Paul Gagon-designed Alnico pickups, G&L AP4285B P-90 in neck position and G&L AW4470B humbucker in bridge positon
  • Mahogany body
  • Hard rock maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • 12" radius
  • 1-5/8" nut width
  • Medium C neck profile
  • 22 medium jumbo frets, nickel
  • 18:1 ratio, sealed-back tuners
  • G&L Saddle Lock bridge
  • 3-position pickup selector, volume and tone with push/pull coil tap
  • Case sold separately

Enjoy this great-playing Leo Fender spinoff for yourself. Order today.

      Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

      There's a lot to love about the Tribute Fallout. Not least is the price, which made it easy for me to pull the trigger and order my first G&L.

      Right out of the box, I was struck by the solid construction, super-stable and well-made bridge, smooth tuners, comfy neck profile and nicely-rounded fret ends; all much better than I had expected for the "entry-level" price-tag. The sound doesn't disappoint either - this is a lively and resonant guitar that's loud and spanky acoustically and has a tight, focused tone when plugged-in. The humbucker in the bridge position is right on the money; strong and present and the coil-tap works great. I really don't care for the P-90 at the neck, which sounds kinda wooly and vague to my ears, but to be fair this is a matter of personal taste and playing style - for all I know it might be just right for subtle jazz parts or rootsy blues.

      Aside from the neck pickup, the only real negative comment I have is about the electronics, which are on the flimsy side. The knobs/pots and switch feel wobbly and loose and there may be some kind of grounding problem too. But perhaps these issues are to be expected at this price and would be easy/cheap things to fix.

        Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

        I had to replace the binding tape around the humbucker as it was poorly installed with big glue drops or some other matter clearly visible.
        The saddles are not original US solid brass, I will replace with US saddles.
        The guitar is manufacured in Indonesia which I'm not saying is bad,but rather made in USA is better!
        The guitar needs a setup, fret buzz on 3rd & 4th strings, but I was expecting this due to receiving the guitar in the mail.
        I've purchased 2 guitars from MF sent in the mail and haven't been disappointed so far. My friends say this is a risky way to buy a guitar, but since all guitars are shipped in the mail anyway, I don't see this as a big risk.
