USA S-500 is the opening model of the S-500 series. This line is dedicated to the slightly vintage-styled double cut electrics with six-string construction, high-end tonewoods and premium hardware. Most of the hardware on these models is made by G&L, except the tuners which, traditionally, come from Schaller. S-500 model, as well as the other guitars in this series, has 25-1/2" scale. Two standard body options are swamp ash for premium finishes and alder for the solids. Bridge on this model is made by G&L and it`s the catalog-wide standard tremolo bridge. In it`s front, G&L installs three MFD single-coil pickups. Maple neck is bolted to the body and has two standard fingerboard options ( 22-fret rosewood and 22-fret maple).
