The G&L ComancheÂ® is Leoâ€™s final word on the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe. Fact is, the first thing youâ€™ll notice about the Comanche is the distinctive shape of the Magnetic Field Designâ„¢ Z-Coilâ„¢ pickups designed by Leo Fenderâ€ himself. These pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end while offering a robust bottom end, all without any 60-cycle hum.
Youâ€™ll find plenty of power in the Z-coil pickups, but whatâ€™s surprising is how glassy and detailed they become as you roll back the volume and bass controls, the latter a part of the Comancheâ€™s PTBâ„¢ (Passive Treble and Bass) system. Whatâ€™s more, the TributeÂ® Series Comanche includes an expander switch on the treble pot to allow neck+bridge or all three pickups together. In a pinch, the neck+bridge combo does a convincing faux ASATÂ® Special. Talk about versatile!
The new G&L Tribute Series Comanche features one of Leoâ€™s favorite pairings: the power of MFD pickups mellowed by the high porosity of a mahogany body. Making the most of this delicious combo is Leoâ€™s Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a work of engineering art which allows bending up or down with unsurpassed stability, while offering a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm.
The Comanche was the very last double-cutaway bolt-on guitar designed by Leo Fender, the culmination of everything he had learned during his amazing lifetime. And now, itâ€™s available at a price within reach of every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, youâ€™ll never look back.
