Quite good actually, but has some issues

01.02.2016
Got my new G&L s-500 tribute a couple of weeks ago and I honestly believed it would need a lot of work before being playable. To my surprise, it's quite okay. There is some string buzz above the 12th fret and the action is too high, but the build quality is very good. Well made and the electronics are very good.

I did get a surprise the first time I hooked it up to my amp and started playing. It was scratchy and buzzing like mad and I thought I had bought a lemon. Took the pick guard off and noticed that a wire on the lower tone pot was too long and actually touching the shield layer on the back of the pick guard. I trimmed it off with a pair of pliers and at the same time, inspected the internal workmanship. I have to say, I was very impressed. Besides the long wire, everything was really clean and properly soldered.

It sounds great and has many sound option through the multiple pickup combination option. I'm sure this guitar will be great after I get it set up professionally.

Update Feb. 19,2016:
So now I've had the guitar for almost a month and I've been playing it almost daily after getting it set up properly. In my detail work I noticed a bad chip in the finish under the tremolo. Not a big deal, but still annoying.

A bigger issue is that the neck pickup is badly misaligned to the lower E string, and I suspect this might be the reason I'm not getting a satisfactory low end sound. I'm not sure why I didn't flag this as a problem when I received the guitar.

A third issue is that at least one of the adjustable pickup poles is stuck, and I'm quite certain that I will strip the hex bolt if I try to add more torque.

I'm trying to get these issues sorted with thomann's service department now, but it's been silent after two days.

Update Mar. 3,2016:
I returned the guitar to thomann today as the issues were just too many to accept on a new guitar. The main issue, besides the cosmetic chip, was that on of the poles one the center pickup was stuck and got stripped when trying to adjust it.

The guitar itself was overall very good for the price, so I will get a replacement of the same model.

No Fender like a Leo Fender...

05.07.2015
If you are looking to buy a Mexican Fender Strat but you think they are over priced, well G&L guitars are the answer. Same designer but better quality. The s500 gives you extra features and it can almost give you a Tele sound as well. No need to have pickup upgrades, it is ready to be enjoyed. Perhaps some adjustments are needed but nothing out of the norm for a new guitar. Leo Fender knew what the Strats needed and how they should have evolved.
