G&L has expanded the finish options for three of its core range of Tribute instruments, adding the choice of its Emerald Blue Metallic paint job to two electric guitars and a bass guitar.

The Emerald Blue Metallic finish has been available on the firm’s Option Order US-made custom builds for a while and has reportedly proven popular. 

Now G&L is offering it on three instruments from its affordable Tribute range, which is manufactured in the Far East, including the LB-100 bass, ASAT Classic and Comanche.

The LB-100 boasts a Saddle Lock bridge and Alnico V split-coil pickup, the Comanche features Z-Coil hum-cancelling pickups and a Dual Fulcrum Tremolo, and the ASAT Classic features Leo Fender-designed single-coil MFD pickups.

G&L was founded by Leo Fender following his sale of his namesake company and the range represents “evolved” interpretations of his classic P-bass, Telecaster and Stratocaster designs.
