G&L’s Skyhawk takes flight once more

null

G&L Guitars has announced a reissue of the ’80s-era Skyhawk, complete with new features.

Like the original, it features an ever-so-slightly offset body and arched pickguard shape, plus a reproduced CLF control plat, CLF knobs and a Dual Fulcrum Vibrato with CLF vibrato arm as well as brass saddles and block.

Three Leo Fender-designed MFD single-coil pickups now promise additional flexibility via a mini-toggle expander switch, as seen on G&L’s S-500.

There’s no word on price yet, but here are the four finish options:

  • Clear Blue over swamp ash, maple fingerboard
  • Natural Ash, maple fingerboard
  • Old School Tobacco Sunburst over okoume, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard
  • Pharaoh Gold Firemist over alder, Caribbean rosewood fingerboard
