A Stylish, Dual Cutaway Guitar
For the new CLF Research Skyhawk guitars, G&L have opted to go back to 1984, when the original Skyhawk was released.
These guitars come complete with a comfortably contoured double-cutaway body, with a slim waist, and arched pickguard shape, successfully combining playability with style.
On top of this you get a sleek, "Modern Classic" neck, dual fulcrum vibrato bridge, and a set of powerful MFD single coil pickups, resulting in a truly versatile rock and roll machine.
Magnetic Field Design Pickups
Magnetic Field Design (usually shortened to MFD) single coil Ceramic pickups have been specially designed to offer a higher output than a traditional single coil, but without the noise.
These pickups also offer a warmer tone than a traditional single coil, with a broader frequency response, and offer individual pole piece adjustment, allowing you to adjust each strings output accordingly.
Dual Fulcrum Vibrato
Originally designed by Leo Fender to offer the final word in vintage-style vibratos, the Dual Fulcrum uses two pivoting points rather than the traditional six wood screw attachment. This results in a much smoother, "silky" feel, allowing you to bend notes up and down at will.
