One of the many perks of this job is listening to and getting turned on to great music. Eric, the owner has a great ear. I'm listening to the Ju Ju Hounds, Izzy Stradlin's band from the nineties. It's great stuff. Real rock and roll. You could play real rock and roll this guitar, that's for sure. We have a G&L S-500 upgraded with Empress wood. This guitar is a joy to play. The Empress wood is extremely light weight and extremely resonant. It has a Whiskey finish, maple neck with rosewood,three G&L MFD S-500 single coil pickups. It plays and sounds great. It's a real rock and roll guitar. Comes with hard case.Learn More

The G&L S-500 debuted in 1982 as Leo's 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.Learn More
