Post "Lawsuit" G&L Headstocks ?
See a few FS ads for G&Ls that include the term, "Lawsuit" describing the early 1980-83 G&L headstocks.

Was a lawsuit filed by Leo's old company, re: headstocks?

Did find an article on the use of Leo's name on G&L products.

These were considered the "lawsuit" G&L headstocks:

See Greg Gagliano's webpage which covers it: http://www.ggjaguar.com/l-2000.htm

AFAIK, no lawsuits were actually filed on the early G&L headstocks.

Hope this helps.

Start a new thread if you want to discuss this (again!).
