Goddammit. Just when I thought I had all the G&Ls I need:

It's beautiful, and I love the old-school headstock they used instead of that god-damned ugly one they use now.

JMHO. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sharp.

I've often wondered why more companies don't do a PP combo. It's a very uncommon configuration. You'd overcome the output imbalance issues you typically get with a PJ, as well as achieve ballsier bridge sound.

As for the headstock, you'd think after 35 years of people complaining how much they hated the new headstocks that G&L would have simply re-designed it.

It has the old style control plate too - they seem to be going back to the old designs more and more.

I have an email in for lefty availability. I was in the process of ordering something completely different when the G&L sales rep let me know about this little project.
(I was poking around to see if they'd do an LB100 in a PJ config, short answer is no-ish)

There's also a shortscale on the way in a new(ish) body shape with a Wunkay pickup layout.

I'll keep you guys posted. I'm hoping yes, I've seen pictures of the righty version - it's good.
