G&L Espada

Post by Danley » Fri May 31, 2019 8:14 am

I've been pretty excited about G&L's recent endeavors - reissue of the Skyhawk/L2000 , Doheny V12 , etc. ...

Anyway, this one nearly slipped by me: A rounded off alternate universe Telecaster with MFD Electric XII split-coils and old-school style active circuitry apparently based on a prototype they found in Leo's office:

Whooooaaaaaa :\

Maybe it's the roundoff, but it definitely looks like it was assembled from random scraps of notes from Leo Fender's office. :jacked:

Yea, these are pretty sweet. I wonder if they’ll end up in the regular lineup.
