Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this G&L Tribute S-500! G&L's Tribute series instruments sound, play and feel about three times better than their price suggests. If you make a habit of comparing price points, you can stop, because there isn't much that can compete with G&L's low/mid-priced instruments. This Tribute S-500 offers players a familiar design and feel, but with updated hardware and pickups. The sound is detailed and dynamic, never taking on that thin, brittle quality that can sometimes plague even good single coils. Clean sounds retain definition at all volumes, even as you roll back the treble and bass controls. Distorted, this guitar can pretty much do it all. Even with tons of gain, it doesn't lose its tonal identity. This is the perfect all-purpose electric guitar for a fraction of what it should cost.

Item Details

This G&L Tribute S-500 features a mahogany body with a tobacco sunburst finish. We love the sound of single coils in a mahogany body - the mids are a bit more lively than usual. The medium C shape neck is maple, and it features a rosewood fretboard with a 12" radius, 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays. Electronically, this guitar features three G&L MFD single coils, the same pickups as its American-made counterpart. These pickups offer a bright and sparkly top end that never gets too treble-happy, midrange focus and balanced lows. Another great feature of the S-500 Tribute is the PTB system, which offers the player a bass and treble knob in addition to the volume knob. The G&L Dual Fulcrum bridge along with the 18:1 ratio tuning keys will keep everything locked down no matter how far you bend.

If you're not looking to empty your bank account on a guitar but you want to sound like you did, this is the way to go.
