G&L USA Fallout Electric Guitar, Spanish Copper Metalic, Rosewood Board

$1,499.99

Player's Perspective

This Fallout lives up to G&L's reputation for quality and consistency without exorbitant price tags, and it does so in a boldly original and unique way. Based on the infamous SC-2 from the '80's, this guitar has a unique musical personality and an interesting tonal profile. It has a retro vibe, but with modern functionality. You can get as shredtastic as you want, and both the sound and the neck will keep up with you. Once you've had your fill, you can jump to the opposite end of the electric guitar spectrum with the flip of a switch. The punchy mids will sound great in a lightly distorted blues setting and it cleans up nicely for pop, country or surf. The neck is very comfortable and feels quite natural - G&L doesn't douse their necks with gobs of finish. This is a great guitar for an incredible price, and it's ready for years of dutiful service.

Item Details

What would an ’83 G&L SC-2 be if Leo Fender recreated it for today’s scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the new Fallout. After all, when inspiration comes from original G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo’s Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans’ Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.

The SC-2 was born as a cool looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today’s sophisticated textures and tones.

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.

From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, Fallout delivers with a great pairing of a G&L Alnico P-90 neck pickup and a meaty Seymour Duncan JB (TB-4) bridge 'bucker.

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.
