G&L Tribute Fallout (HP) 6 String Solidbody Electric Guitar (Discontinued)
The G&L Tribute Fallout appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from May 2021 until March 2022 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.
The G&L Tribute Fallout features an interesting combination of pickups, a coil-split capable humbucker in the bridge position, and a P-90 soapbar in the neck.
This combination allows for tones and pickup combinations that you won't normally get from mass produced guitars.
It also stands out with its distinct body shape, and unique positioning of knobs and pickup switch.
The body is crafted from mahogany, while the neck is maple, with a 21-fret brazillian cherry fingerboard.
It comes with G&L's proprietary saddle-lock bridge, said to be an invention of Leo Fender meant to improve string to body vibration transmission.
If you're looking for a quality guitar that is unique both in terms of looks and tone, then definitely check this out.
Unfortunately this has been discontinued, so if you're looking for a new guitar you will find excellent alternatives, such as the Gretsch G2215-P90, in our guide to The Best Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500.
