      G&L Tribute Legacy Left-Handed Electric Guitar (H88869)
Availability:  


Alnico single-coil tone with modern refinements and superb craftsmanship.

The G&L Tribute Legacy Left-Handed Electric Guitar blends contemporary refinements from the Leo Fender-designed S-500 and Comanche models with classic Alnico V pickups. If your holy grail is faithful Alnico single-coil tone with modern refinements and superb craftsmanship, the Legacy makes for an excellent choice.

The Legacy’s vintage-spec CLF-100 Alnico V pickups have that unmistakable chime and quack reminiscent of the best examples from the late ‘50s, thanks to the work of Paul Gagon, G&L VP Engineering. Gagon found his inspiration reviewing original prints stored in Leo’s private laboratory at G&L, but that was just the start. About 30 years ago, Gagon was an R&D engineer at another company when he was tasked with finding out what was so special about the early bolt-on guitars many players raved about. Gagon tirelessly analyzed many examples of what were considered holy grail guitars, spending time out on the shop floor talking to builders still working in the pickup department since the ‘50s, all on a quest to discover where the real mojo was – and wasn’t. What he learned from the builders matched his own engineering analysis. You see, back in the day, the actual spec of pickups coming down that old production line varied considerably. That meant coming up with the right specs for the Legacy pickups was more challenging than simply following the prints. Gagon’s persistence paid off as the Legacy garnered rave reviews from both players and magazines like Guitar Player and Guitar World.

This axe is no slave to the past, however, starting with Leo’s PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups for dramatically more variety than the vintage setup. What’s more, the Legacy features a Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a work of engineering art which allows bending up or down with unsurpassed stability, while offering a silky feel through its beefy aluminum vibrato arm.

The Legacy is all about honest, classic Alnico tone complemented by Leo’s own modern refinements. And now, it’s available at a price within reach of every working musician.

Case sold separately.

  • a south paws dream guitar

    As reviewed by Matthew Ziemek on 3/11/2014

    First off, I had to have this guitar shipped to a Guitar Center and had a great experience with the online buying aspect from start to finish. I've been playing guitar now for about a year and a half. Started with an Ibanez RG120 which helped get my feet wet in learning how to play. After month after month of practice, I felt ready to make a purchase for the next-level guitar. Enter the G&L Tribute series Legacy. Everything about this guitar feels and sounds incredible. Unfortunately I don't own an expensive amp or any pedals to play around with, but I can say that the clean tone is beautiful and its pickups offer a great variety of sound in themselves. It's noticeably lighter than my previous guitar also which helps playing for extended times more comfortable. Bottom line, this guitar proudly serves true to the name of Legacy.
