G & L Guitars
G&L guitars are hand-crafted in USA at the old Fender Fullerton plant and the Tribute Series guitars are made in the Far East, mainly Indonesia. The quality is superb, including the Tribute Series which are fitted with the same USA-made pickups as the Fullerton-made guitars. Quality tonewoods are used throughout and they sound and play great. Please note we set-up all these G&L guitars so that they play perfectly.
Due to a change in the Distributor arrangements in the UK for the foreeable future we can no longer get any more G&L guitars, as a result we have reduced the price on all our G&L guitars
G&L Tribute Doheny
Inspired by the classic surf sound born in Southern California, the new G&L Doheny™ takes its name from the iconic beach in the heart of Orange County where '60s surf pioneers became legends. Since those halcyon days, both music and surfing have evolved far beyond their roots, and so has the performance of the gear.
Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design™ jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. Naturally, these new pickups will invite comparison to Leo’s jumbo MFD™ ASAT® Special pickups, given they employ a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay. But Doheny's MFD pickups are more about jangle than twang, just as they should be for a guitar like this. With a classic jazz bobbin aperture wrapped with traditional Formvar wire, these pickups just might be the approach Leo would have taken had he been with us a few years longer.
So what’s it like? The sound is rich in harmonics yet surprisingly full, the result of carefully researching and applying Leo’s creative work across the decades. The Doheny pickups deliver the experience fans have hoped for, with their flexibility maximized by the PTB tone system that allows echoes of yesteryear while delivering more output and range for today’s music. Add in Leo’s finest vibrato for enhanced tuning stability and improved sustain, and the results are astounding.
