G & L
History - Leo Fender and George Fullerton Together
Leo Fender decided to form a partnership with his long time friend, and co-designer
of the Stratocaster, George Fullerton. Of course, Leo was still contractually
bound to CBS not to use his last name, so they decided to call the company "George & Leo",
or G&L for short.
The first G&L Guitar, the ASAT
(After Strat After Tele) was extremely reminiscent of
the early Telecasters that Leo designed in the 1950’s.
The later Legacy model is Stratocaster-like in design.
The early Fenders in the 50’s and 60’s were
available with different neck radius and measurements,
which is not the case today.
