What would an '83 G&L SC-2 be if Leo Fender recreated it for today's scene? The crew at G&L think it would be a lot like the Fallout. After all, when inspiration comes from original G&L SC guitars modded by the likes of Devo's Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Band Of Susans' Robert Poss, there are lots of cues to follow.

The SC-2 was born as a cool looking, comfortable and light axe that could be thrashed mercilessly and not miss a beat. Fallout keeps those qualities in the mix but branches out to cover today's sophisticated textures and tones.

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.

From dirty riffs to jangly hooks, the G&L Tribute Series Fallout delivers 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 G&L Tribute Fallout with Maple Fingerboard 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.

I've had my Fallout for a few years. I'm surprised there's no reviews. If you want a balanced, easy to play guitar right out of the box, this is it. Comfortable body shape and easy to play maple neck with jumbo frets. Lots of tonal options with the humbucker-P90 combo. A split coil that actually sounds good. A unique bridge that's built like a tank. Great tuners for stock. Can't say enough good things about this one. Just buy it.
