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.

Comments about G&L Tribute Legacy Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

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.

Comments about G&L Tribute Legacy Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

I was super psyched to order this guitar, being a Jerry Cantrell fan for years. I own four strats and find them comfortable to play. The neck on the Legacy is a little wider than I'm used to but still very playable. I'm not a fan of single coil pickups, but these sound better than any I've tried. But I still put a Seymour Duncan in the bridge position, I am a hard rocker after all. This guitar is beautiful, it looks amazing and sounds better. I wanted to try the Tribute model before getting an American one (which I did one month later). It did need the intonation adjusted out of the box but that was it. I love the dual fulcrum tremolo system, it is smooth as glass. This guitar beats anything coming out of Mexico, it costs less, sounds better and you get 22 frets!


I would stay away from this Guitar, poor QC.

    Comments about G&L Tribute Legacy Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

    Great sounding pickups, the electronics are great. The quality control of these guitars is very poor. I went thru two of these guitars, fret problems, really bad workmanship. The first guitar even had screws missing from the body of the guitar, on the pick guard. Loose screws on the rear spring cover, as well.
