Overview

The G&L S-500 debuted in 1982 as Leo' own evolution of the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, delivering innovations including the Dual-Fulcrum vibrato and Magnetic Field Design single-coil pickups, each designed by Leo Fender himself. These MFD pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end and robust bottom end, all without losing midrange focus.

You™ll find plenty of punch in the MFD pickups, but what' surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the S-500' PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups. What' more, the S-500 Deluxe includes a push/pull volume pot to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASAT Special.

The S-500 Deluxe features a Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a work of engineering art which allows bending up or down with unsurpassed stability, while offering a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm. A hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its 12 radius lets you bend notes deeply and its Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious deluxe Tolex hardshell case, you™ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that™ll have your pulse racing.

Leo' forward-looking spirit is clearly reflected in the S-500, a guitar he designed for players who share that spirit. The S-500 Deluxe departs further from the expected, with a stunning Premium flamed maple top bent over the arm contour shaped into a Mahogany body.
