Nick Jaffe Demos BBE Ben Wah™ With G&L Fallout™
Nick Jaffe takes a look at the BBE Ben Wah™ modified '60s wah pedal in his latest YouTube video. Nick's videos are always well-done, super-informative and entertaining, but his break-down of the Ben Wah's features and it's functionality is superb! Watch the video and you'll see what we mean. Nick is one of the best funk players out there and the use of wah seems second-nature to him. And when you put a G&L Fallout™ in his hands, you'll begin to understand why Nick is the best. Oh, and the guitar sounds killer too!
About the G&L Fallout™: What would an '83 G&L SC-2™ be if Leo Fender recreated it for today's scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the new Fallout. After all, when inspiration comes from original G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo's Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans' Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.
The SC-2 was born as a cool looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today's sophisticated textures and tones.
Fallout shares the original Leo Fender-designed SC-2 body shape, comfortable, sustain-rich G&L Saddle Lock bridge and easy-playing medium-C-shape neck with a 12" radius and medium-jumbo frets.
From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, Fallout delivers with a great pairing of a Paul Gagon-designed G&L Alnico P-90 neck pickup wound in-house and a Seymour Duncan JB bridge humbucker.
The look transcends the SC-2's simplicity with a sweeping pickguard that complements the body shape perfectly. Balancing out the aesthetics is a sleeker interpretation of the '80s-era G&L headstock shape designed exclusively for the Fallout.
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™. Find out more here.
