This was a replacement for a G&L s500 which was returned due to a faulty scratchplate.

I received the guitar plugged it in only to find it crackled when I touched the scratchplate.. Got advice from Thomann Experts who said it was static and that it was not a fault because the guitar was not shielded... I had to install foil shielding and another earth wire. This solved the problem. I emailed Thomann again saying that I thought that the final inspection by G&L should have picked this up.

A roller stringtree solved (I hope) a problem with the B and E strings constantly going out of tune.

Lighter gauge strings(9/42) meant very fine adjustment of the tremelo springs had to be made.

The pickups are very good and have a good tonal range.

However after all of the above the instrument at it's current price is good value.

Quality is rocking

Fenrir, 04.02.2015
By reading in some (mainly American) forums I was pretty sure to get a guitar whose quality is fine. But since I was deceived ..... the quality of this G & L is outstanding. A minimal paint defect and a bad string are all I have to complain about, the rest is perfect. Even the Tremolosystem is top, with normal use no disturbances occur. The PUs are ok, not too shrill or too dull, mats is doing nothing.
The G & L Strat was actually just an experiment because I only play Les Paul guitars. But the quality of this G & L convinced me that I have now equipped them with higher quality pickups. The investment has paid off, from Pink Floyd via Rory Gallagher to Deep Purple, everything is in it.
To say it with the words I have often read in American forums on this guitar: Best Bang for the Buck.
If Thomann has the G & L Legacy Tribute in Blueburst with a rosewood fretboard in the program, I will also increase it.
