G&L Guitars News: Premier Guitar Reviews the G&L Fallout R/T

Premier Guitar just treated an eye-catching Sublime Green G&L Detroit Muscle Series Fallout™ R/T to a full review and video demo, and the guitar took home excellent 4-star ratings across the board.

PG reviewer Matthew Holliman takes note of the inherent stability of the Fallout's Leo-Fender-designed G&L Saddle-Lock™ bridge, and then delves into the guitar's unique pickup pairing: "The (G&L handwound Alnico) P-90 sounds rich, deep, and balanced from treble side to bass. It’s a bit darker and woolier than some P-90s, yet it maintains bite without getting muddy like neck ’buckers sometimes do ... The Seymour Duncan JB sounds meaty and responsive, and the two pickups balance well." The review is paired with an excellent video demo by PG's John Bohlinger (remember John from NBC's Nashville Star?). John spends 10 minutes fully putting the Fallout through its paces and delivering a full tonal palette from twang to jazz to rock, and all points between.

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™.
