My guitar collection - G&L

 
 

The S-200 looks very much like the S-300, with similarly shaped control panel holding the the PTB wiring harness, including a F-100E inspired preamp, but for 2 Jumbo MFD pickups instead. This model nonetheless never went into production making the SC-2 the first commercial guitar with these fabulous single coil pickups. There is even less information available on the S-200 than on the the S-300. Hence, this page merely serves as a testimonial the model is real.

Not in the collection. And likely will never be. The Guitars by Leo (GbL) Registry has no pictures of the S-200. Nor do any of the posts on the GbL site make mention of the S-200. It never popped up in any correspondence I have had with other collectors and G&L experts like Gabe Dellevigne and/or Greg Gagliano. Although, it is not inconceivable they know about the S-200 and I just forgot to ask. I only became aware of its existence when group moderator Shawn Penney decided to use a picture of an S-200 provided by a member of the “Fans of G&L - CLF Research” group on Facebook as its cover photo. To see the picture, i.e. for the previous link to work, you will need to be logged in and be a member of the aforementioned group to see it. The shown guitar belonged to the late Buddy Kendrick who worked with and for Leo Fender for 3 decades as an artist liaison. Buddy also owned several Music Man related prototypes. Currently all these instruments reside with his son David.
