BCR Music & Sound is Central Pennsylvania's location for G&L guitars and basses. We carry Tribute, USA Option-Order, CLF Research and Custom Shop models. G&L has made it's models like the S-500, ASAT and Legacy models an industry standard by improving upon the original "Leo" designs, by improving function, playability and tone from almost every angle.
The G&L S-500™ debuted in 1982 as Leo’s own evolution of the traditional double-cutaway bolt-on axe, delivering innovations including the Dual-Fulcrum™ vibrato and Magnetic Field Design™ single-coil pickups, each designed by Leo Fender† himself. These MFD™ pickups deliver a bright and sparkly top end and robust bottom end, all without losing midrange focus.

This BRAND NEW G&L Tribute S-500 in Irish Ale is the perfect example of why we love G&L guitars. The S-500 expander allows the neck and bridge to be used simultaneously in the "5" position, as well as all 3 pickups when the blade selector switch in the "4" position. Combining this extra combination, along with the Passive Treble / Bass control allows any player to conjure up tones from the past, as well as a very high fidelity, more modern single sound by controlling BOTH Treble and Bass cuts to the output.
