OVERVIEW

A classic with three blade-buckers, modern refinements and superb craftsmanship.

The G&L Legacy Special blends contemporary refinements from the Leo Fender-designed S-500 and Comanche models with potent blade 'buckers designed by Paul Gagon. And not all blade pickups are the same; while all are humbucking, there's a fine line between going for power and losing that characteristic chime and quack or classic single coils. If you're up for a meatier tone but don't want to stray too far, the Legacy Special makes for an excellent choice.

Just like the Alnico-equipped Legacy, the Legacy Special includes 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 Special 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 Specials' hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its 12" radius lets you bend notes deeply and its Plek-dressed medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious deluxe Tolex hardshell case, you'll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that'll have your pulse racing.

    Comments about G&L Legacy Special Electric Guitar:

    Opened up the case and one pickup was DOA. Looked at the paperwork and the neck radius was shown as 9.5 . Checked the Neck and yes , 9.5 . One of the biggest selling point was the advertised 12 inch neck radius. Played the guitar for about 5 minutes and put it all back in the box for return. Musician's Friend was great about the return. Always great customer service @ M/F .
