Overview

The 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. It comes with a great pairing of Paul Gagon-designed Alnico pickups: a gorgous P-90 and meaty humbucker splittable via a push/pull tone pot. 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. Case sold separately.

Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

As a guitar technician, I've noticed import G&Ls are usually a little ahead of import Fenders and this is no exception! Yes, it has some fret buzz but compared to the Fender Mustang, its a "fender-like" guitar so why are people complaining? Every guitar, even if it was $1000+ should be professionally set up before one complains about the instrument. I first saw this guitar with red and rosewood and wondered what else was out there. Upon seeing the "mustang-like" baby blue and vintage tinted neck from G&L (a company with a good overall reputation for quality), and a soapbar neck pickup I was sold. When I read further and read it was a Mahogany and coil tapped from the factory, I was even more excited. The guitar was everything I expected and more. The humbucker had a good tone as I recall, but I had a Seymour Duncan JB sitting around, so I threw it in. The cosmetic thing I didn't like was the shiny white quard, so I ordered a custom (because at the time there was no aftermarket options for the Fallout) tortoise pickguard and that makes it look awesome! The action was too low and the intonation was off upon buying it, so I adjusted the neck, adjusted/radius-ed the saddles. I noticed after playing a lot, the tuning wasn't holding, so I put some hipshot locking tuners and that problem was solved. The guitar, even though it is now my most commonly used guitar, is a very bright sounding guitar and won't fit everyone's (including my) musical tastes all the time so I'd say play one and see for yourself it is for you. I would just like to reiterate that a proper setup with fresh strings will allow you to be a fair judge. I'm done ranting now!

Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

I primarily use this for home recording or through a VOX VT100X. The range of sounds you can get with these pickups is great. My first G&L guitar, but it won't be my last.

The only downside was some fret buzz at first, but I've adjusted the action and now it is fine.

Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

First off, This is a great guitar, and would recommend it. I just had some bad luck with mine and had to return it.

When It arrived I thought I got a seafoam green one, but I don't believe they make a seafoam green tribute. It's such a light blue, and under a yellowish light, it will look greenish. Still looked nice, and didn't bother me.

Next, it came with the black cap of the pickup switch, cracked in half and broken off in the box upon arrival.. MF then sent me a new cap, but that one didn't fit the guitar.

Then, I couldn't get a clean sound out of it. The pickups were extremely noisy. In order to not get loud humming and buzzing, I had to turn the tone practically all the way down, and it did not sound good (this was on the humbucker surprisingly, the p90 was nice!). This happened on both my audio interface to my computer and my amp. I've never had any problem with my other guitar (an SG with two humbuckers). So i'm assuming there was an issue. I don't believe it was a grounding issue, I'm not really sure what could have been happening. I also tried it in a few different environments, in case it was just interference and the pickup was catching noise from something, 60 cycle hum? who knows?

I wouldn't fault G&l, It is a beautiful guitar, and feels great. Especially for the price, which is why it hurt to send it back. I really wanted to keep it. But I think I just got a bad one. I may try to get another one down the line because it did look fantastic and felt great. Hopefully, I will have better luck then.

Aside from that, Musicians Friend handled the situation (and a irritated me) professionally and friendly, every step of the way. This was my first time buying from MF, and will be buying again from them. I decided to exchange the guitar for a different one.

    Comments about G&L Tribute Fallout Electric Guitar:

    Writing this the day I've got it, so of course the honeymoon phase is in full effect. Ordered it because I've been toying with the idea of wiring one of my guitars with a P-90 in the neck, and I've been interested in a good-sounding coil split -- and I found that this guitar's got both those things going on already.
    Honeymoon or no, I'm really impressed with a lot of things about this guitar. Decent set-up out of the box -- needs some slight intonation adjustment and I'm going to lower the action at the bridge a bit on the bottom strings, and the action at the nut could be a little lower (but it's close, and I don't know if I'll bother), but the neck relief is just right and the intonation very close. The neck feels very good except the finish might benefit from a little sanding to take the stickiness away. The frets are decently dressed and there's only one spot where I get any buzz at all (at the 19th fret on the 2nd string, which is somewhere I rarely go anyway, and it's barely noticeable).
    What I'm really impressed by is the tone, and particularly the neck P-90 and the coil split on the bridge humbucker. To me, it actually sounds better split than in bucker mode, where it could be more aggressive -- I wonder if the pup wasn't designed specifically with the intention of being split, as it sounds pretty close to the vintage bridge pickup on the vintage tele I've got with the tone pot pulled up. And it sounds good split and paired with the P-90 in the middle position. This might be the first guitar I've had where I like the sound of any paired pickup position as much as bridge or neck positions alone.
    No complaints out of the box about the electronics, but will have to see how they hold up over time. They do feel a bit cheap, but that's expected given the price range. And the pick-ups exceed what I expected.

      Great guitar! Low priced but doesn't feel cheap. Great pickups - the P90 stays clear even with some grit and the humbucker sounds beefy. If you're on the fence about this guitar, just go for it.

          Can't put this guitar down. Great tone and sound clean or with an edge. Set up from factory was spot on which is rare. Even unplugged this guitar sound good and smaller body size fits in lap nice when sitting in a chair practicing. Baby blue color is real cool. Thin and fast neck feels alot like my stat.

          Very nice neck. With the splittable humbucker and the P90 in the neck, a lot of tone choices. Dial back the volume and you will be rewarded with nice cleans. Solid guitar at a very reasonable price.

            Great guitar although I was disappointed with it's weight. I was expecting a much lighter guitar. Not that's it's heavy but it is a bit heavier than some of my other tele/ strat types. I really wish the weight was published with all new guitars, it's an important factor in my purchasing choice.
