G & L History - Leo Fender and George Fullerton Together Again

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.
