Swipe Available Color Options Below

The famous S-500 was born in 1982 as Leo Fender`s own take on the age-old double-cut bolt-on concept. More than three decades later, the S-500 is as fresh as it was when it came out. The current lineup consists of two Made in Fullerton/USA models and a lone Tribute series model. USA S-500 is the main member of the trio, coming in with a solid and double-cut body (swamp ash with premium finishes, alder with regular ones), G&L electronics (S/S/S arrangement + PTB system), and G&L hardware. Displayed color options include Cherry Burst, Blue, and Copper. Other notable features include a bolt-on maple neck, 22-fret fingerboard (maple and Caribbean rosewood options are available), tremolo bridge, and sealed tuning machines.
