US guitar maker G&L has announced it is joining Blackstar’s DIST-X for UK distribution from today, 5th April.
Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, G&L became a popular but niche choice for professionals and serious amateurs in the USA with the instruments featuring Leo Fender’s final developments in pickups, bridges and electronics.
G&L CEO David McLaren says: ‘We are excited to have DIST-X Distribution representing G&L guitars. We feel that the values of the company match those of G&L and we see a fantastic opportunity for growth and increased visibility in the UK. We look forward to working closely and successfully together.’
DIST-X Sales Manager Drew McDonald added: ‘We are delighted to have G&L guitars in the DIST-X family. The guitars are truly stunning and coupled with the rich heritage behind the brand we see huge potential for growth within the UK market. My team and I are looking forward to giving G&L the success it deserves.’
