A Storied Solidbody From a Legendary Luthier

The CLF Research Espada represents all the best of Leo Fender's original vision for re-imagining the electric guitar as he began his new company in the late 60's. The Espada almost never saw the light of day as the project was abandoned for reasons unknown in late '69. Fast-forward nearly 50 years later to when the original blueprints and R&D documents were discovered and the Espada was finally brought to fruition. The Espada features a lightweight, resonant swamp ash body with a beautifully playable and responsive Caribbean rosewood fingerboard finished in a vintage gloss. Two long-pole, split-coil prototype pickups updated with Leo's Magnetic Field Design deliver outstanding amplified tone and have become a favorite here at Citymusic.

Mind-blowing pickups and tone

The pair of Z-style pickups in the Espada are wired for tone on a level that will inspire exploration and awe. Each pickup features a series/parallel switch that lets you fatten and round your tone in the wheelhouse of a classic humbucker, or thin it out slightly to single-coil territory. In addition, a modern G&L Micro Preamp can be dialed up via a mini-toggle switch that activates either a passive output or a buffered lo-Z output along with a high-frequency boost — slice right through thick fuzz or put your sparkling harmonics front and center.

A bridge to better sound

Ever the innovator, ever the perfectionist, Leo Fender also developed the Saddle Lock Bridge technology for the Espada. The focus was a design that would more efficiently transfer the energy of the guitar's strings more directly into the grain of the body. By using a small Allen screw on the side of the bridge that presses all the saddles together, they resonate as one, reducing the loss of the strings' vibration and bringing more energy to the pickups and the overall tone of this amazing axe.
