Leo Fender’s lost design from ‘69 takes on a whole new vibe with twin humbuckers in the G&L Espada HH. The latest in double-hum guitars from G&L, it's wrapped in a gorgeous shape tucked away for decades at CLF Research.
Espada HH features a set of G&L alnico humbuckers: clean and classic at the neck with a little more juice at the bridge, the same pairing found in other popular G&L HH models. The expansive Espada control plate houses volume, treble and bass controls, each capped by a beautiful chrome CLF Research knob, plus twin mini-toggles: a coil-split for both pickups and an output kill-switch. Then there’s the legendary bridge design from ‘79: Leo Fender’s G&L Saddle Lock hardtail which delivers superb sustain with comfort and style.
The result is audible in every pickup setting, from jangly single-coil tones that defy split-humbucker expectations, to overdriven humbucker tones with crisp detail and definition. There’s always more to explore with Espada HH, and every journey is as exciting as the destination.
