The G&L Detroit Muscle Series: SS Collection
The G&L Detroit Muscle Series draws inspiration from some of the most iconic and sought-after American muscle cars of the 1960s -- the very same cars that have fueled the modern day resto-mod car scene that is thriving right here in Southern California, home of G&L Musical Instruments.
The G&L Detroit Muscle Series launches hard off the line with the SS Collection by combining four historic GM colors with six legendary G&L models. G&L has turned to Mitch Lanzini, owner of world famous Lanzini Body Works (featured on TV's Overhaulin' show) to provide expert guidance and ensure these high performance G&L's sport the exact paint hues for Daytona Yellow, Hugger Orange, Cranberry Red and Marina Blue offered on the ASAT Special, ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90, Fallout, Legacy, Legacy HB and LB-100 Bass. Each model features a color-matched headstock and 1-ply black pickguard for a clean, sleek look.
These four colors helped define muscle car history. The 1965 Corvette Stingray Trans Am race cars flew in Marina Blue. When you think of the legendary LS6 Chevelle 454SS, you see Cranberry Red. When you imagine the ultimate 1969 Camaro, it's an RS/Z28, drenched in Hugger Orange. The rarest and most coveted 427 ZL-1's, Camaro or Corvette, are painted Daytona Yellow. And now, these classic colors can be had on your favorite G&L model.
While the colors pack '60s nostalgia, the power and handling of G&L instruments are thoroughly modern, just like the Pro-Touring classics they represent. Unique high-performance features include a Leo Fender-designed Saddle Lock Bridge with chrome-plated brass saddles (ASAT Special/Fallout/LB-100), a Leo Fender-designed Dual Fulcrum vibrato with forged brass saddles (Legacy/Legacy HB), a heavy-duty Boxed Steel Bridge with individual brass saddles (ASAT Classic Bluesboy 90) for enhanced sustain and tuning stability. Throw in Plek fret processing, and of course, legendary G&L craftsmanship and these ground-pounding classics are sure to out-perform the competition.
Whether you keep 'em bone stock or give them your own custom touch, the G&L Detroit Muscle Series offers American made performance with the personal expression of a classic. All this in an affordable package, designed to run hard for the everyday player, just like the cars of the muscle car era.
To help promote the Detroit Muscle Series, G&L Musical Instruments has entered into an exclusive sponsorship agreement with the prestigious Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals car show to be held November 22-23, 2014 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
Detroit Muscle Series instruments will be included at the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals show in cross promotion of the "Color My World" exhibit presented by The Wellborn Muscle Car Museum and will include giveaway instruments. With more than 500 top-quality, classic and custom cars attending from all over the country, the 2014 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals provides the perfect backdrop for the Detroit Muscle Series from G&L Musical Instruments.
All of us at G&L would like to thank Patrick Krook, President and CEO of Show Your Auto, for his enthusiasm and support of this project.
