    In about , however, Leo decided to get back into the guitar business and formed a partnership with his long time friend (and co-designer of the legendary Stratocaster) George Fullerton.

    > Who was guitar George? This answer makes the assumption that your reference is to these lyrics, by Dire Straits: > Check out Guitar George, he knows all the chords Mind, it's strictly rhythm, he doesn't want to make it cry or sing Yes, and that.   So he was replaced by engineeer Forest White. When Leo left CBS/Fender, he and White started Music Man together. For a variety of reasons, Leo moved on to form G&L (obviously with Fullerton). But by the end of his life G&L stood for "Guitars by Leo", NOT George and Leo. Fullerton probably took a little too much credit for Fender's success.
