2004 G&L S-500 Tribute Korea - $450
Desirable Korean model. These were made prior to the move of so many brands to Indonesia. Electronics hardware are the same as USA versions. Quality par with USA Fenders and can do more than a typical strat.
Pro setup. Level frets. Low action. Stable tuning. Good+ Condition - Minor scratch below pickguard and a tiny divot on the headstock. This was my #1 until I built a Warmoth and has seen less use since. Would keep it if I could but promises were made when I built the other.
This guitar is registered with the G&L guitar library.

"The G&L S-500™ debuted in 1982 as Leo’s own evolution of the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, delivering innovations including the Dual-Fulcrum™ vibrato and Magnetic Field Design™ single-coil pickups, each designed by Leo Fender† himself. These MFD™ pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end and robust bottom end, all without losing midrange focus.
You’ll find plenty of punch in the MFD pickups, but what’s surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the S-500’s PTB™ (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups. What’s more, the G&L Tribute® Series S-500 includes a push-pull expander switch on the treble pot to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. (Earlier models like this one have a switch). In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASAT™ Special."
