G&L Tribute S-500 Premium
Made in COREA
22 frets
Three single coil pickups.
Vibrato bridge two special advocates G & L
One volume, two tonalities, a 5-way switch more sweet.
handle c.


Very pleasant to handle touchcomme on a strat slides easily. Adjustable one cot.
Access to acute, it's a Start, matter of habit. All dpends your doigtbr /> but we made it very quickly.
Good balance that one is standing or sitting!
Strat shape! (Of course).
The higher pitch than the Strat, but I have to say cient pots,
which allows you to agire the sound!


This guitar is perfect for my style of music. ("PINK FLOYD" "EAGLES" "AMERICA" or even "SHADOWS" that is to say for the kind "country, rock etc ...
I currently play on a small amp "Peavey" RAGE 158 I do not use any effect
I add them after recording.
The resulting sounds are rather diverse, but my principal sound cleane or trslgrement saturated and this guitar is made for a fact! Mtalique sounds.
It is certainly not made for the metal or hard!
For my style of music, it is a very good guitar!


I use it for nearly a year-bit,
What I like the most, vibrato supert who want good agreement, effective EQ,
The studs of the stud adjustable microphones plot (supppppert) .The MOuuuuuaaaaaahhhhh color !!!
Very nice finish! Who is not that the picture presented here, but red patent on the edges, varnish ambr center, magnificent.
The least they did not provide the box with (lol)
I played on "STRAT 79" before, I sold .I played on "GRETCH" guibson STANDARD "
Report qualitprix trsbon is a guitar that has a price justified I think it is not very expensive.

See G & L site


As on a Strat very high bill.


Here is a good time that I have not put a notice on AF. But there ... this is the slap! I was lucky enough to own a bunch of very good guitar fender custom shop in Gibson, Charvel, japan Vintage, Washburn made in United States ... These models G & L made in Indonesia are hair-raising quality: the pickups are in the vein of good strats, slap, creamy in the neck position, cutting edge easel and again this is not all Strats that have these qualities! I compared with G & L US: évidante the difference is in terms of finish (wood, fuel wood for the handle ...) but for the sound and feel it is level. I found the feel of my US Clapton, the same comfortable handle, the ring bends, we delight! Mine is color Blueburst, I hastened to find a natural finish second but with a rosewood fingerboard. I want to réciser I use this guitar for my concerts, my twin 65 on, the sounds are fantastic calires. With my Tonebone Trimode I get a range of quality overdrive. This is perfect!


For the price, I think this is the best market opportunity. And yes, we are now swamped by a multitude of brand, with many Asian Standarts US. These G & L depart completely. It is, in my opinion, the level of a good Strat ... except US the price.

G&L Tribute S-500 Premium
Made in korea
22 frets G & L United States
Fender offspring!


Handle very pleasant and easy
superb finish!


She is very versatile for the moment I play on a little VOX DA5

some explanation of Samuel Rope on the operation of this guitar

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>Hello,

It is true, there is never a notice with the guitars! Finally:
A) is the volume B) Ring for neck pickup C) Ring of the environment for micro
E) slecteur microphones:
Position 1 (to handle) neck pickup active
Position 2 + middle pickups handle active
Position 3 micro active medium
Position 4 mid + bridge active pickups
5 Poistion active pickup

D) It's the little extra G & L (L is for the Fender Lo)
The international access to the neck + bridge pickups to be active for one of the Telecaster sound when playing with two microphones.

Do not panic if you are lost with the slecteur it is possible to know which microphone is active or not. Simple: touch the rope on one of the studs if the microphone has a small tac-tac is that the microphone is active.

There are only offering a Fender doc pdf trsgnraliste with guitars, you can by downloading a one will give you an ide: http://www.fender. com / products / search.php? partno = 0101200720



This is my first electric guitar and not the decline and experience here I would give you the advice of a scratch of my friends for 17 years and my guitar teacher
they both found this guitar very beautiful and very well finished too! very nice to play
the microphones were surprised by their quality, the strings very close to the handle does not border on the vibrato does not tune the strings
my teacher even told me, with two weeks earlier essay in a store other guitars, the G & L was much higher than a Highway one example
to 535 is a bargain for them but rare because there really are not many dealer in France and not even in Switzerland (I live just a cot!) then to try it mission impossible
(Mine just in a Paris https://www.bcorde.com/index.php?page=41&lg=1 BCorde Audio)
in my case I had this mark on AF and I trust the advice of afiens at the beginning I was leaning to a Fender and now I do not regret my choice

G&L Tribute S-500 Premium
Guitar made in Korea in 2004.
22 jumbo frets, pickups Made in America - G & L Magnetic Field.
Bridge "dual fulcrum", meaning two studs.
Settings: volume, treble, bass, classic 5 position switch plus a micro switch which couples high and low together.
Maple neck with rosewood button.
Light ash body (swamp ash) - good sustain.
Plastic nut - to be replaced with a bone nut or graphite.


Very easy guitar to play, has one of the best rounds I know (I play for over 20 years). Access to acute and more difficult as the neck-through, but still possible. Weight and correct for me.

The setting of severe (very unusual) with the toggle switch allows you to find sounds really nice crunch as well as plain. on the other hand, this guitar is not made for heavy distos. For this, consider a change of micro acute, with a dual format Strat.

The pickups are not noisy, because they provide a signal level high enough for single coils.


This guitar is great for rhythm and solos in his or light crunch. The ability to couple the two microphones acute and severe, this particular guitar, to find sounds really nice.

Sounds the most enjoyable in my opinion, can be obtained on a Fender type amp Tweed Combo, with a bit of reverb. The ash body gives a lot of sustain and tone quite warm.

Vibrato is ok as long as we limit its action.


This is a very good guitar, which resists even after the purchase of an LTD MH-400, it will advantageously be completed.

The little less than this guitar is the nut plastic, that I will replace with a bone nut or graphite.
