1987 G&L Skyhawk w/case Leo Fender et G Fullerton era ds 

Superb color between Torino and Fiesta Red with matching head,

Sounds great strat ’, a thin and very comfortable handle. About 40mm at the nut.

Low action and in very good condition. About 3.7 kgs.

It is from the period when Léo Fender and Georges Fullerton were still present and active at G&L.

The vibrato fine tuners is rather rare (two entries for arm, either right-handed or L/H Steve ray Vaughan style)

Original case.

The Skyhawk was one of the first "S-style" models to switch from ebony to rosewood fingerboards by mid 1987.

The Skyhawk shown here has the rosewood board, typical ash body, and is fitted with the optional Le 1er Leo Fender style Fine tuner Vibrato and Graph-Tech locking nut. Very few Skyhawks were fitted with this tailpiece.
