G&L CLF Research Doheny V12 Okoume with Old School Tobacco
G&L CLF Research Doheny V12 Okoume with Old School Tobacco

G&L's 2017 release of the Doheny was not just a new body shape for G&L, but also the first new MFD (Magnetic Field Design) pickup in many years. This immediately sparked a lot of "what if" conversations, and the first to bear fruit is the new CLF Research Doheny V12. It's not a rehash of the old F-100, and with its flexible series-parallel-split switching, the CLF Research V12 combines new pickups with the classic 80's CLF cosmetics for a totally fresh offset mash-up.

G&L CLF Research Doheny V12 Pharaoh Gold on Basswood
G&L CLF Research Doheny V12 Pharaoh Gold on Basswood

G&L's 2017 release of the Doheny contained quite a few "firsts" for G&L including the offset body shape, a 21-fret neck unique to the Doheny, and of course the new JM-size MFD pickups. Now under the CLF Research moniker, the Doheny V12 blows it wide open with classic 80's cosmetic touches, and their newly developed MFD humbucker with series-parallel-split switching. Uniquely G&L and uniquely flexible, the CLF Research Doheny V12 further pushes the envelop of the offset guitar.
