Overview

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 G&L's Paul Gagon. Gagon found his inspiration reviewing original prints stored in Leo’s private laboratory at G&L, but that was just the start.

In the early '80s, 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 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.

        Comments about G&L Limited Edition Tribute Legacy Electric Guitar:

        These G&L tribute legacy guitars are beautifully crafted with great sounding electronics. They extend the start versatility with the PTB system. All the old fave tones are there, plus a lot more bass heavy options-quack, spank n roll! The white with maple neck looks lovely.

        QUALITY at a GREAT price

        By MATT

        from ST LOUIS, MO

        Comments about G&L Limited Edition Tribute Legacy Electric Guitar:

        I bought this as a buffer/insurance policy to protect my best guitars from my children. My best are still better ( Parkers) but these G&L are spectacular mid level guitars. I have owned Fender, (MIM & MIA), Gibson, and Parker, settling on the later. STRAT profile like designed and expected. Outstanding value, fun , and worth every penny. SERIOUSLY great product as expected from CNC machines whether in USA or Indonesia... the programs carve the body/neck. Only mod was Sperzel tuners bc once go Sperzel you never go back.
