This guitar evokes the sounds of the Strat®, Tele®, and even Jazzmaster® wrapped in a comfortable contoured body.
G&L ASAT Special Natural Gloss B-Stock

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.
This is a like new-guitar returned by the customer due to unexpected financial issues. No signs of playing or handling, all paperwork and tools.
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.
G&L CLF Research L-1000 Natural
From G&L's CLF Research line, the L-1000 is the return of a legend, but more than just a trip down memory lane. CLF Research was the company that (Clarence) Leo Fender created to kick start his projects, and that would eventually turn into the G&L guitars. To honor these historic beginnings, the CLF Research L-1000 features the original '80 control plate, early head stock, 'Slim C' neck profile and thin gloss urethane finish. These guitars are not built to order, and will be released in small batches. Don't miss your chance to relive G&L history.
G&L CLF Research Skyhawk Clear Blue
Part of G&L's CLF series of guitars, the Skyhawk is the return of Leo Fender's "other" 3-pickup guitar. (Clarence) Leo Fender started CLF Research the late 70's -- which originally was the guitar manufacturing source for Music Man -- and this would eventually turn into the G&L guitars. To honor these historic beginnings, the CLF Research Skyhawk features the original '84 control plate, early head stock, 'Modern Classic' neck profile and thin gloss urethane finish. These guitars are not built to order, and will be released in small batches. If you are looking for a familiar feel with its own look, check out the Skyhawk.
