G&L 40th Anniversary S-500 Clear Red #2071 Item #2071

Availability: In stock

Celebrating 40 years of the G&L brand created in 1980 by Leo Fender and George Fullerton, a special edition S-500 will be available to mark this milestone. Made at the historic factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the S-500 guitar is a superb example of Leo Fender’s design philosophy.
The 40th Anniversary S-500 features Leo’s famous MFD pickups, okoume body showcased by a Clear Ruby Red finish, white pearloid pickguard, and a caribbean rosewood fingerboard.



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.
Leo’s forward-looking spirit is clearly reflected in the S-500, a guitar he designed for players who share that spirit. If that sounds like you, you owe it to yourself to check out the S-500.
