G&L is without a doubt the finest production Fender type instrument around today. To me, it beats even Tom Anderson and the like if for no other reason than many of their necks still feel "Vintage Fendery" while T.A. is a different animal, and awesome for other reasons. We dealt G&L's for a long time and was an authorized service center. So I got close with the factory guys. Before that, I sold them some Mighty Mite parts. They used the M.M. chrome jackplates for the strat-styles, and the Ibanez style output jack for the rest.
I have a Commanche (bamm, you can come over and borrow it if you want) Where I did a custom mod to make it like the old ones. I used 3 mini toggles to select one or both coils of each pickup. That means top 3 strings or bottom 3 strings. Imagine, neck pickup top 3, bridge and middle bottom 3. Its the coolest thing. I also did that with some custom made Duncan vintage rails. Same concept of 3 strings recognized per coil.
As far as the Korean models, I fully support that project. They are using the US pickups, which are awesome, and all the Leo designed improvements like the bridges for example. A great buy all the way around. I would even say it beats an american standard easily in value.
