G&L intros Comanche Studio VI

G&L has introduced their Custom Creations Comanche Studio VI guitar, an update on the Comanche VI made between 1988-1991. What's noteworthy about both guitars is the inclusion of six mini-toggle switches with the ability to control the coil in each pickup.

Three 3-Way mini-toggle switches, each controls the coils of one pickup as follows:

1) Coil for lower three string on / coil for upper three strings off

2) Both coils on

3) Coil for lower three string off / coil for upper three strings on

G&L says that each pickup also has its own on/off switch controlling the whole pickup, enabling any combination of the three Z-coil pickups to be activated.

"The ability to shut off all three pickups for total silence without unplugging the guitar provides added convenience, whether between studio takes or sets on stage. Together with the three-way coil control switches, every possible combination of coils and pickups is achieved, resulting in a broad tonal palette appealing to studio session players and gigging musicians alike. Such flexibility is the hallmark of Leo Fender's work, and the Comanche VI remains a pure example of Leo's vision, allowing musicians to create multiple musical timbres and sonic layers from just one guitar" they say on their website.

The Comanche Studio VI comes in two piece solid Swamp Ash, finished in Honeyburst or Tobacco Sunburst (only 50 of each produced).
