The Fiorano: tradition turns groundbreaking.
G&L founder Leo Fender had a vision for a new guitar, and his partner George Fullerton sketched that vision. G&Lâ??s Steve Grom uncovered the sketch three decades later in Leoâ??s workshop, and his colleague Paul Gagon set about turning the vision into reality. He enlisted Jackson Guitars founder Grover Jackson â?? a long-time friend and collaborator â?? to contribute. The result is an instrument thatâ??s steeped in rock-guitar history but groundbreaking: the Fiorano, the first set-neck, 25Â½â?-scale, three-tuners-to-a-side guitar G&L has ever offered. Itâ??s a striking instrument and, quite simply, it kicks ass. It joins the pioneering 24Â¾â?-scale Ascari in G&Lâ??s Tribute Series, and it delivers on its promise. The 24-fret neck and Gagon-designed humbuckers are made for brutal riffing and detuned/drop-tuned heaviness â?? but the Fiorino cleans up beautifully when asked.
