A LEGENDARY HERITAGE
By the late 1970s, Clarence Leo Fender and his CLF Research company had completed his consultancy for CBS/Fender, designed and manufactured the original Music Man instruments, and were looking forward to launching a new brand.
Together with former Fender employees George Fullerton and Dale Hyatt, Leo launched his new G&L Instruments with advanced features derived from his decades of experience redefining what was possible in an electric guitar and bass.
