OVERVIEW

For players who demand a versatile guitar capable of handling any situation.

This is the perfect time for the G&L SC-2 Electric Guitar to make a comeback. It's been more than 20 years since G&L made the SC-2, though its popularity is getting stronger each year. G&L is proud to announce that the SC-2 is back and better than ever!

Introduced in 1982, the G&L SC-2 guitar's distinctive shape and tone resonated with the New Wave movement. Pioneers like Devo's Bob Mothersbaugh immediately embraced creator Leo Fender's SC-2. The SC-2 was pure Leo genius-fresh, forward-looking, and fun.

Though the '80s New Wave movement gave way to glam rock, which gave way to the grunge movement in the '90s, what comes around goes around. Today's indie-pop musicians are increasingly embracing the aesthetic of early '80s New Wave scene; evolving it with the edginess that today's indie scene grew up with. The SC-2 was perfect for its time as well as today's direction, and consequently vintage SC-2s have been growing in value as gigging musicians and collectors alike are discovering-or rediscovering-one of Leo's coolest guitars.

Leo demanded that G&L designs continue to improve, and we think he'd be pleased with the latest axe to emerge from Fender Avenue. This is no reissue, as the new SC-2 has evolved to meet the needs and tastes of today's musician. The distinctive body profile is faithful to the original, but now features G&L's generously sculpted arm and back contours for added comfort as well as repositioned controls for ease of use. The result is a light, compact body that just feels great, whether hanging on a strap or strumming in a chair.

Things have evolved up top, too, with a neck featuring our easy-playing contemporary #1 profile, capped with the stylish mid-80's G&L headstock shape incorporating G&L's trademark "hook" design. What's more, this neck blends a vintage vibe with modern playability with its Gun Oil Tint finished with satin on the back and gloss on the headstock face.

The new SC-2 electric guitaris powered by a pair of G&L large MFD single-coil pickups, yielding a broad range of tonalities for even the most diversified of players. The neck pickup is a traditional-spec large MFD, which has a warm, spongy response with just the right amount of top-end articulation. The bridge position features an over-wound "fat" MFD pickup for a powerful, smooth vocal presence that's great for clean or overdriven textures. The SC-2's sonic territory covers punchy indie-pop riffs, straight-ahead blues rock, smooth jazz, even jangly country licks. For players who demand a versatile guitar capable of handling any situation, the SC-2 gets it done with comfort and style.
