Since the mid '80s, G&L has made some of the meanest machines around, from the Rampage® to the Superhawk™. The Invader was a sister model to those two, but in the '90s Invader took on the slim body shape it has today. At the same time, Invader borrowed the G&L Dual Blade pickups players love about the Legacy Special, and paired them with a beefy bridge bucker for quiet, high-powered sophistication.

Today's Invader sticks with this proven arranvement, plus the volume pot has a push/pull coil-split for the bridge humbucker. Invader's hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, fast 12" radius and Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets for silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious hardshell case, you’ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that’ll have your pulse racing.

Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-on™.
