I was just playing my S-500 and thinking about what a solid guitar it is. Here it is in the background on red guitar day at the studio in 2010:



It's just a really dependable, pretty sounding guitar and I've used it for a lot of sessions.

Thank you sir. My wife commissioned it for me in 1999. It has a swamp ash body with transparent red finish, light birdseye maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, white pearloid pickguard, S-500 electronics (MFD pickups, passive bass and treble controls, treble bleed cap, and expander switch), and that ultra-smooth dual fulcrum trem that is very much like a Wilkinson. My sons paid to get it set up by my luthier and it just plays like a dream.



On one client's album I did the parts for a particular song on this guitar and the executive producer like them so much he moved it up to the album opener.

That guitar is a beauty, hope you love it.
I got my 1st G&L back in 1993, a classic, telecaster style. It has my favorite neck. I must be a contrarian, cause I love G & L's and Breedloves!

That's a nice one. Owned a G&L a while back that was a real sweet sounding guitar. Unfortunately, i had to sell it when I moved. I miss it.

Arrived today.

So much guitar for such a reasonable price in a US made instrument.

Superb fit and finish.

My crummy chair pic.

G&L is definitely bang for the buck. People will go back and forth for ever over the old G&L USA = Fender Custom Shop Quality question. My personal feelings on that are that things like the quality of the rosewood, and inconsistency in neck size are the things that make that not true.

But, I fully believe that USA G&L is not just superior, but substantially so compared to a standard factory Fender USA product. And will cost you less to boot.

I love my Bluesboy. And my Franken-ASAT Classic (2001 neck, 2010 body) is possibly the guitar I would grab if my house were on fire, and the decision had to be made on best sounding/Playing guitar.

Congrats. The wood on that thing is stunning.

The clear red on swamp ash is a gorgeous finish - my ASAT has the same, with natural wood binding.
