Legendary guitar maker Leo Fender was never content at having helped to merely steer the course of modern music. In fact, he actually managed to complete his final guitar prototype on the day he passed away, aged 91.
Towards the tail end of the 1970s, Leo founded G&L (aka Guitars by Leo) to continue the rich guitar-making legacy that he began in the 1950s. With G&L, Leo Fender introduced a whole host of innovative technologies that modern players still hold in esteem.
In his quest for the perfect guitars, Leo Fender designed and developed a host of new hardware and electronics, many of which are still used by G&L in their new instruments today. These include the Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato, Saddle-lock Bridge, MFD pickups (both single coil and humbucker), and the PTB Tone system.
After Leo's unfortunate death, ownership of G&L passed to his good friend John C. McLaren, a man who shared Leo's view of G&L as a maker of superb instruments. As a result, each and every G&L instrument are designed to offer musicians some of the very best quality and tonal-choices available.
In fact, the great Leo Fender himself often said that G&L Guitars and Basses were the best instruments he had ever made.
