G&L CLF Research Espada Sonic Blue Electric Guitar


The inception of the Espada™ can be traced back to the late 1960s when Leo Fender spearheaded its development at his groundbreaking CLF Research company. This visionary project aimed to create a cutting-edge two-pickup guitar for his renowned namesake company. Despite reaching an advanced stage in styling by late 1969, the Espada project was abruptly abandoned. However, the blueprints and R&D artifacts of this remarkable guitar remained preserved within the archives of CLF Research. The Espada boasted captivating aesthetics, showcasing a distinctive body shape, a unique pickguard design, and a commanding control plate reminiscent of a sword.
