For players who demand a versatile guitar capable of handling any situation.

This is the perfect time for the G&L SC-2 Electric Guitar to make a comeback. It's been more than 20 years since G&L made the SC-2, though its popularity is getting stronger each year. G&L is proud to announce that the SC-2 is back and better than ever!

Introduced in 1982, the G&L SC-2 guitar's distinctive shape and tone resonated with the New Wave movement. Pioneers like Devo's Bob Mothersbaugh immediately embraced creator Leo Fender's SC-2. The SC-2 was pure Leo genius-fresh, forward-looking, and fun.

Though the '80s New Wave movement gave way to glam rock, which gave way to the grunge movement in the '90s, what comes around goes around. Today's indie-pop musicians are increasingly embracing the aesthetic of early '80s New Wave scene; evolving it with the edginess that today's indie scene grew up with. The SC-2 was perfect for its time as well as today's direction, and consequently vintage SC-2s have been growing in value as gigging musicians and collectors alike are discovering-or rediscovering-one of Leo's coolest guitars.

Leo demanded that G&L designs continue to improve, and we think he'd be pleased with the latest axe to emerge from Fender Avenue. This is no reissue, as the new SC-2 has evolved to meet the needs and tastes of today's musician. The distinctive body profile is faithful to the original, but now features G&L's generously sculpted arm and back contours for added comfort as well as repositioned controls for ease of use. The result is a light, compact body that just feels great, whether hanging on a strap or strumming in a chair.

Things have evolved up top, too, with a neck featuring our easy-playing contemporary #1 profile, capped with the stylish mid-80's G&L headstock shape incorporating G&L's trademark "hook" design. What's more, this neck blends a vintage vibe with modern playability with its Gun Oil Tint finished with satin on the back and gloss on the headstock face.

The new SC-2 electric guitaris powered by a pair of G&L large MFD single-coil pickups, yielding a broad range of tonalities for even the most diversified of players. The neck pickup is a traditional-spec large MFD, which has a warm, spongy response with just the right amount of top-end articulation. The bridge position features an over-wound "fat" MFD pickup for a powerful, smooth vocal presence that's great for clean or overdriven textures. The SC-2's sonic territory covers punchy indie-pop riffs, straight-ahead blues rock, smooth jazz, even jangly country licks. For players who demand a versatile guitar capable of handling any situation, the SC-2 gets it done with comfort and style.

  • g&l guitars sc-2

    As reviewed by DAVID GLOSER on 11/23/2012

    overall quality:4 stars, but the backside of the neck had a small knot in the wood which should not have passed quality control for an instrument produced at the fullerton ca. factory.this is the expectation of many people,buying the american made non-tribute models,because of their higher price.that small defect was the only critique i had.i am satisfied with the g&l sc-2 and there were no playability issues.

  • Excellent Guitar

    As reviewed by MICHAEL on 7/2/2015

    Here are thoughts about this guitar in no particular order: Like all G&L guitars, the SC-2 is unbelievably well crafted. High quality material and craftsmanship. This guitar is built to last I've been playing MIM Fenders for years before switching. The neck is far more comfortable. Don't fear the slightly beefier neck change. The pickups are very unique. They are higher output than a single coil guitar, but cooler than humbuckers. That makes this guitar very versatile. Perfect for all kinds of music (not exaggerating), with the exception of perhaps heavy metal. The pick ups have a great twang and midrange. They will take getting used to, but they are awesome. It is a light guitar. Great for gigging. Has great string action and a smooth fretboard. Yes, the price tag has gone up recently. However, the new price (around $1600) more accurately reflects the value of this guitar. I hope to convince just one person to give these guitars a try over an SG or a Fender. It was well worth the risk for me.
