Welcome to the www.guitarsbyleo.com Registry, the web's largest instrument registry!! The goal of the Registry project is to compile as complete a database of G&L date, serial number, and instrument feature information as we possibly can. If you own a G&L, please submit it!! The benefits that this database will provide to researchers and collectors (present and future) should be obvious, and the success of Jim Werner's list of Fender data (known to its participants simply as "The List") stands as ample proof of the concept. Your guitar and bass data is needed in order for this project to be a success! Also check out the G&L Rarebirds section below to learn about another cool thing that we're already using the Registry data for!

Just for grins, I thought it'd be cool to
keep tabs on all of the rare, hard-to-find G&Ls that have been
submitted to the
Registry (*). Below you will find a fairly exhaustive listing
of G&L's "Rarebirds"; click on the model names (or images) to view
detailed subpages containing background information, photos, and a complete
listing of all registered examples.
* The fine print: Note that for our purposes, the
Rarebirds are those models with a production total of 400 or
less; in addition, I make a special exception for the Broadcaster due
to its "limited edition" nature (and fame). Naturally, for any
given G&L model there are going to be unique and/or otherwise rare
or "one-off" instruments - for example, the candy lemon F-100s. I do
not attempt to document such intra-model rarities here. Similarly,
G&L has produced a plethora of non-production prototypes
throughout the years, and the only such prototypes that I attempt to
document here are some of the more sought-after and/or well-known
examples, such as the second-style X-body Interceptors and the ASAT
Customs. Finally, you'll notice that some models list "Unknown"
in the "Num. Made" column - these are models which are thought to be
quite rare, but for which precise production figures are not currently
