G&L Tribute Doheny Lake Placid Blue Electric Guitar


Introducing G&L Doheny®: the Evolution of the Offset Inspired by the classic surf sound born in Southern California, the new G&L Doheny takes its name from the iconic beach in the heart of Orange County where ’60s surf pioneers became legends. Since those halcyon days, both music and surfing have evolved far beyond their roots, and so has the performance of the gear.

Doheny takes the bolt-on offset-body into new sonic territory with newly developed Magnetic Field Design™ jazz pickups, the first on any production G&L. Naturally, these new pickups will invite comparison to Leo’s jumbo MFD™ ASAT® Special pickups, given they employ a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay. But Doheny’s MFD pickups are more about jangle than twang, just as they should be for a guitar like this.

Born of Surf, Ready for Anything

Inspired by the classic guitar design favored by surf bands of the ’60s, the G&L Tribute Doheny Lake Placid Blue combines vintage style with modern tonal dexterity. Its well-balanced offset body is equipped with a pair of Magnetic Field Design (MFD) jazz single-coil pickups, constructed with a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay to generate a wide frequency range with rich lows, punchy mids, and jangly highs. And for versatile tone shaping, G&L’s Passive Treble and Bass (PTB) tone system allows you to cut highs and lows independently — perfect for fine-tuning fuzz and high-gain tones. Complete with a Dual-Fulcrum tremolo, the G&L Tribute Doheny offers creative potential any player can appreciate.

MFD pickups based on a classic single-coil design

G&L’s MFD pickups utilize a narrow bobbin aperture and broad coil splay, just like the iconic jazz pickups from the ’60s that they’re inspired by. The sound is wide-ranging and dynamic, with extended lows, plucky mids, and delightfully jangly highs. It’s a great starting point for a variety of musical styles, as you have plenty of signal to shape any way you like, whether with pedals or your amplifier. The Fullterton Deluxe Doheny sounds impressive whether clean or fully overdriven — many guitarists at Sweetwater feel its sweet spot is right in between, on the edge of breakup.

Dual-Fulcrum tremolo expands your creative potential

If you’re drawn to the creative potential a tremolo bridge offers, but are concerned about tuning stability, you definitely need to try out the G&L Tribute Doheny Lake Placid Blue. It’s equipped with G&L’s Dual-Fulcrum tremolo, an original design by Leo Fender himself. You’ll be able to bend notes and chords up or down with amazing tuning stability — even after deep dives.
