Beautiful sunburst strat. Looks like an ordinary fender til you get into it.
Way more advanced tone control, tremolo has full up and down motion like a Bigsby,
coil combo switch, advanced pickups....leo's baby grown up
The ultimate sweet strat surf sound....but full growl too.

Holiday price drop....$525.
I like slightly wider neck, or I would never sell this

Thought I'd chime in with my experiences with G&L and in particular the S-500.
I've had a few G&L guitars and still have the first one I got, a '96 S-500 with a bowling ball finish that I played the snot out of for several years.
They really are a great playing and sounding guitar. They have what i consider the best free float bridge ever. The pickups are more meaty then a traditional strat tone and the toggle switch will kick on all three pickups and give convincing humbucker tones. I was playing a lot of classic rock stuff then and this was a good guitar for that.

So, if you are looking for a reasonably priced strat guitar it might be worth your time to check out a G&L, they are the next gen Strat that Leo Fender himself designed and sold.

Kinda very interested in putting that Strat under my own Christmas tree. Sent you a PM w/ contact info. Please text me to see when/if we can follow up. I'll sound just like David Gilmour, right?
