Gigbag Included

Every guitar in our store is completely checked and set up by our guitar luthiers so that the guitar is easy to play yet without buzz. And if you have any special wishes regarding setup - tell us (or specify) when making an order and we will be happy to make a perfect guitar for you :)

Also, you have to keep in mind that wood is a living material. Guitar’s geometry changes a little over time, adjusting to temperature and humidity, so there is no setup that can last forever. To save you a headache, we have a free setup service for our instruments! If you feel that something is off you can bring it to us so that we can return everything to it’s perfect original state.

For online orders we manually pack each guitar into a ton of wraps and carton and also have full insurance for all our shippings. So that you wouldn’t worry that something might happen on the way.

MFD Pickups

As a signature feature of G&L, Magnetic Field Design (MFD) pickups are found in the majority of their electric guitars and basses, regarded as a defining characteristic. By transferring the magnetic field to the top of the pickup rather than the middle, they provide a responsive tone with clarity and a wide frequency response. And Leo Fender did this by constructing the MFD pickups utilizing a ceramic bar magnet (installed beneath each coil), with soft iron pole pieces. MFD pickups also yield about twice the output per wind, making them less noisy than most conventional pickups while allowing for greater overall output. The standout feature of MFD pickups is their adjustable pole pieces, enabling players to fine-tune the height of each pole piece for customized string output and EQ experimentation. As a result, the pickups produce less noise, have a very wide dynamic range, and more output while still retainging the glassy tone which we all love.

PTB System

The PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system, crafted by Leo Fender, stands as a remarkable innovation featured in many G&L guitars and basses. It provides players with advanced tonal control by enabling individual adjustment of treble and bass frequencies. Unlike conventional tone controls, which typically boost frequencies or act as low-pass filters, the PTB system takes a unique approach by emphasizing frequency cuts. This allows for precise tailoring of treble and bass levels, empowering players to sculpt their sound exactly as desired, regardless of playing position. In some sense, PTB functions like an EQ, right there on your guitar and makes it effortless to control your instrument's sonic character.

Dual-Fulcfrum Tremolo

The G&L Dual-Fulcrum® vibrato redefines tremolo design with its dual-pivoting system, a brainchild of Leo Fender. Unlike vintage tremolos, it employs two pivoting points for a smoother feel and allows both upward and downward bends. Crafted with a hardened steel bridge plate and knife-edge bolts set in brass inserts, it ensures durability and stability. The inclusion of a machined aluminum tremolo arm with a single locking Allen screw enhances usability, offering quick installation, smooth operation, and adjustable resistance. In summary, the G&L Dual-Fulcrum vibrato embodies Leo Fender's innovation and precision engineering, providing unparalleled performance and versatility for expressive and dynamic playing experiences.
