G&L instruments are similar to the classic Fenders, but with some modern innovations.Note: Many 3-bolt guitar neck plates in the range of 52000 to 55000 were mis-stamped with a B-prefix instead of the usual G-prefix.It was a vendor mistake and the plates were used rather than wasting them. G&L instruments produced since mid-2010 are shipped with a Custom Build Specifications sheet which includes the date the instrument was completed.There are also dates labled on the neck heel and inside of the body.
