G&L Introduces The Savannah Collection

Postby Ken Baker » Tue Jun 04, 2013 8:32 pm


Imagine a late-summer sunset over the wild, beautiful African savannah. It's easy when you gaze at the Savannah Collection. It's the newest offering from G&L's Custom Creations Department, and it might be our most beautiful to date.

Start with the body. It's semi-hollow and it's Okoume, an extremely light, sweetly resonant wood with a lot of mahogany's warmth and a bit of maple's snap. Top this with a cap of Korina, which has always been prized for its open, articulate tone. The result: a strikingly light axe with striking tones across the entire five-guitar collection.

Okoume and Korina are native to the African savannah -- hence the name. But the collection's distinctive finish -- a golden-honey center and G&L's rich Old School Tobacco Sunburst with its red highlights -- also suggests natural beauty.

Add in Quarter-sawn Eastern Maple necks with Pao Ferro fingerboards, carefully selected and spec'd pickups, and Plek fret dressing, and you have a one-of-a-kind instrument that's pure G&L.
