Player's Perspective

This is a smooth, versatile, American crafted S style guitar, but with enough twists to really set it apart and a price tag way below what it should be. Tonally, this guitar is a testament to the fact that the S-500 has found its own voice in the single-coil, double-cut world. With the characteristic single coil top-end shimmer but a beefier midrange than you might be used to, the S-500 has a unique and fully realized tonal identity that will enhance a whole range of styles. The neck is substantial, round and extremely comfortable everywhere, and upper fret access is easy. Very hard to beat, especially given the price.

Item Details

This American made S-500 features a swamp ash body with a clear forest green finish. The maple neck is G&L's modern 'C' shape, and it features a rosewood fretboard with dot inlays and a 9.5" radius. Electronically, this guitar is decked out with three G&L MFD (Magnetic Field Design) S-500 Single Coil pickups. These pickups work tonal wonders. They have all of the high-end shimmer and clarity of good single coils, but they never sound thin. They're like single-coils with the midrange definition of humbuckers. There's also a 5-way switch and a mini toggle that allows you to use the neck and bridge or all three pickups at the same time. G&L's tuners, the bone nut and the G&L Dual Fulcrum vibrato bridge keep everything in tune no matter what. A great design at an unbeatable price.
