Brings Back The Best of '80s CLF Styling

Originally released in 1984, the G&L Skyhawk offered a great option for forward-thinking players. With the G&L CLF Research Skyhawk you get the latest evolution of this gorgeous guitar.

Featuring a comfortably contoured double-cutaway body, a slim waist, and arched pickguard shape, the G&L CLF Research Skyhawk brings together a great combination of style and playability.

When you factor in the inclusion of a sleek, "Modern Classic" neck, dual-fulcrum vibrato bridge, and a set of powerful MFD pickups, you get a phenomenal rock and roll machine.

Powerful Single Coil Pickups

MFD (Magnetic Field Design) single coil pickups feature a ceramic magnet and adjustable steel pole pieces, and have been specially designed to offer a higher output than a traditional single coil, but without the hum.

Tonally, MFD single coils offer a tone that's warmer than you'd expect, with a broader frequency response. In addition to that, each of the pole pieces is invidually adjustable, allowing you to adjust the output of each string on each pickup.

Dual Fulcrum Bridge

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.
