    I'm interested in both guitars, and can only get one. I'm having to buy them online, so I'm polling the group for opinions.

    Both guitars have a lot of similarities. They are both Mahogany with a flame maple cap, both are HB loaded, similar control layouts, and finishes. The only differences so far as I can tell, are that the FMT is a set neck and has a belly contour.

    I'm wanting to know if anyone has experience with either guitar, and what they thought of them. My only experience the G&L was with a Tribute ASAT Special that I really liked, just didn't get along that well with the MFD's. I've actually never owned anything Fender made, so I have no clue about that guitar at all.

    G&L. I don't have anything to back that up. But 100% G&L.
