OVERVIEW

Alnico single-coil tone with modern refinements in a special color.

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.

I've been wanting to get a Stratocaster style guitar for a while. I've pretty much played Les Pauls for most of my life, though I've got a variety of guitars. But I've never had a Strat with maple fret board and single coils, so I've been keeping my eye out for a decent Strat that I could afford on no budget. When this came up as a deal of the day, I did a little research and decided that I wasn't going to find a better deal, so I pulled the trigger. I'm glad I did.
Most reviews of Legacy Tributes said that they were perfect out of the box, but was not the case. There was major fret buzz on most of the strings through the first three frets, and it went all the way down to the 7th fret on the low "E." Ugghhh. But after adjusting the truss rod, putting on a set of Power Slinkys, adjusting the bridge, and setting the intonation, it plays beautifully. I set the action a little higher than most like because I play very hard. If you don't know how to set up a guitar, though, you might have to have a professional do it for you if it comes in the condition mine arrived in.
This guitar sounds amazing. I'm stunned by the clarity and variety of sounds you can get. The hardware is all quality, too. The guitar even stays in tune when you use the whammy bar!
On the downside, there were a few small cosmetic flaws on different parts of the body and neck, and, while there were no rough fret edges, there was a very small but noticeable nick (more by touch than sight) on the back of the neck. Don't notice it unless I'm really looking for it, though, and it doesn't affect playing. Overall, it's a very solid, well-constructed guitar, though, a little heavier than a Strat, but nowhere near as heavy as my Les Paul. I am very happy with my purchase and will probably play this guitar for many years to come.

Got it at a great price on the Stupid Deal of the Day. Purchased it mainly because of the great reviews and G & L being Leo Fender's latest iteration of the Orignal Stat. Personally, the guitar didn't feel right in my hands. While body had good resonance even playing unplugged, the neck did not feel right. The hardware and pickups are decent for the price. Overall it felt cheap in comparison to my Fender Mexican Strat, which is around the same price point. I sent it back after a couple of days.

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

I've played off and on for 20+ yrs and had several strats of various quality. This is by FAR the best I've played. The finish and fit is impeccable. Looks and sounds exactly what it's supposed to. Like a strat. Never really liked the light weight feel of the Fenders. This guitar isn't LP heavy (which I like), but feels substantial, and not like a cheap toy. Setup was good out of the box and the bridge was floating perfectly level with the body when I tuned her up. There also is the only problem with this instrument. Like EVERY Strat style guitar without a Floyd Rose it goes out of tune as soon as the guitar catches sight of the tremolo bar.Now you can lube different parts and go to techs, and that may solve the problem. My fix is to put the bar in my spare parts box.It worked for Clapton. LOL. The tone knobs are a different setup than the usual but seem to "do more" in the way of changing the tone.The neck is raw wood. Didn't know how I would like it , but as you play it it "breaks in" with your oils and feels quite nice. I would buy this guitar 10X before any fender.

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

      I've been a hobbyist musician for about 20 years, but I've worked in music stores and repair shops, so I've been able to try out a fair amount of gear. My legacy was nicely setup out of the box (and in tune!) with low action and good intonation. The pickups are fantastic: clear and chimey. A week ago I played a slightly more expensive Mexican Strat and a Tribute Legacy side-by-side and the Legacy won by a mile. Both felt good, but the Legacy sounded much better. Also, the PTB (passive treble bass) controls are fantastic. Being able to roll off the bass is great, especially when playing in a group. Why don't more guitars have that? I also very much like the G&L tremolo.

      I've seen complaints in some G&L tribute reviews about finish flaws. Mine doesn't have any flaws that I've been able to find. Plus, I'm planning to play it, so it will get bumped and bruised anyway. It plays and sounds wonderful.

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

        As a collector/player of mainly Gibson guitars, I am not well-versed in single coil guitars. I know how they "should" sound from listening to Hendrix, Stevie Ray, Clapton, etc., but that was never a sound I was interested in attaining when I was younger. Now that I'm trying to broaden my tonal horizons, I am looking for a guitar that can give me those "quacky" and "glassy" sounds that are tough to get out of a humbucking guitar. I'm pretty sure I found what I was looking for in this guitar.

        I have played a few Strat-style guitars, but I have never had the opportunity to spend quality time with one; tweaking the tone, different effects loops, different amps, etc. The first setup I used with this axe was going into a Marshall combo using only a Tubescreamer into the clean channel. WOW! I was blown away at the response. Every pickup position produced a quality tone that I quickly associated with a "Strat" song. I was pretty impressed with the tremolo setup also (not that I plan on using it). It rocks in both directions with hardly any effort. I will probably install the extra spring that came with it and tighten it up a bit so I don't risk pushing it sharp while playing. There is no lacquer on the neck which makes it super easy to play.

        Upon further reading, I found that the pickups in this guitar are US-made even though the guitar is made elsewhere. G&L did it right on this one. I'm sure there are better guitars in this configuration out there, but definitely not for this price.

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

              The guitar looks great and sounds great on all three pickups. It is similar in sound to Squier Strat Classic Vibe '60, and I would say is marginally better. Also 2 tone controls (treble and bass) are a plus.
              Action is setup well right out of the box.

              Now to the problems.
              1) The neck (maple) appears a bit darkened in some places as if it was a used guitar, although it is definitely new.
              2) Strings are a bit rusty- replaced them.
              3) Pickup covers mismatch - two are white and one is "aged" white. Unfortunately, pickup covers on G&L are not exactly the same as on a strat, different distance between magnet poles, so replacing it may be a bit of a challenge.
              4) Some fret edges are a bit sharp - fixed it myself by sanding.

              I got this guitar at a massive discount (Stupid deal of the day) and for that reason decided to keep it despite some cosmetic problems. It is not easy to get a guitar that would not have any issues.

              With this quality control issues I don't think it is worth a full price.

              Great Guitar for the Money

              from Southeast U.S.

              Verified Buyer

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

              I've been playing for over 40 years. I owned most models of guitars during my time, but currently play Les Pauls, and Fender Strats mainly. I play through various higher end pedals and use Fender Hot Rod Deluxes. This is my second Tribute. I regretted selling my first one. Two days after the tribute arrived, I used it in a live performance in front of 2,000 people over 3 shows. Played great. With a little tweaking of intonation, bridge spring set-up, and string height adjustment, new strings, she was ready to go. Here's what you need to know about this guitar. The pickups are slightly brighter and cleaner then most single coils, giving you greater tonal range then a standard strat (in my opinion). The key is to roll off the Treble knob to about 2 and a half to 5 and you'll get the sound you're after. Sounds great. I keep the bass knob all the way up (This guitar has the PTB control layout). Again, the key is the Treble control to warm it up. But if I want a brighter chicken picken tone, I can get it better then another guitar I have. This guitar will go from ice-pick bright to jazzy warm. The U.S. made, Leo Fender designed pickups are worth most of the price of the guitar. This Olympic white Legacy Tribute definitely has that 69 Hendrix, Woodstock mojo look. It does look great on stage and feels great in your hands. On sale, it is one of the best kept secrets online. The Mexi Strats new are almost twice the money. Tweak it, break it in, roll back the treble a bit, and you have a wonderful guitar. I'll be passing this guitar down to my grandkids. Not selling this one. I highly recommend it.

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

                  Were it not for the low cost of the guitar (and we should all feel fortunate to live in an era when quality instruments are so affordable), I would not have rated it as highly. I bought this as a "mint" open box, but upon arrival it was greasy/dirty and had a small paint chip on the rear. The set-up of the bridge, the truss rod (buzzed excessively), the action, the intonation, the you name it needed adjustment. It was not hard to figure out why the first guy sent it back. After an extensive set-up, I am pleased to say it is a quality instrument that plays well and sounds great. The pick-ups, tuners, frets, neck, etc... are all good quality. The only word of caution I would offer to someone considering its purchase is that while it is strat-like, it is not a strat. It is heavier in the hand (which I prefer) and has its own sound. To me it is preferable to a strat in all respects, but I humbly respect the opinions of others who disagree.

                    IMO this is a high quality guitar that is hard to beat at this price point. Very smooth,easy to play and balanced guitar. I also own a USA strat and this guitar keeps up with it on quality and playability. The only down grade for me is that the pickups are very, very bright. Which also makes them very clear on the positive side. Not muddy at all I think. I rarely play in a group so I don't really need a guitar that cuts through the mix. You may very well like that about this guitar.

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

                      This is my second G&L, first legacy "Strat". Have an ASAT also same white/cream color combo. Both were M/F purchases, ASAT was a SDOTD, and Legacy was open box. Both arrived very close to being set up perfectly. This Legacy arrive without a trem arm, but I normally take them off and add springs to lock the block anyway. Finish is excellent, seems to be a mile deep. Was said to have scratches, but I think they were only on the pick guard protective film, I could not find a single blemish. Frets were level, rounded edges, and play smooth. Normally don't play a maple fret board, but this is fine. Neck suits my old hands, very smooth, slick, and easy to move around on for fretting. Mostly play my chords on open tuned guitars for the easy fretting as a concession to my hands. This guitar staying in "Standard" tuning for scales and runs. BTW, it stays in tune, too (but then I like to tie down the trem block with extra springs...) Everything about this guitar exceeds its price point, it blows away my Squiers and comes very close, maybe even passes my MIM Fender. Pick ups are great! I like a rough and ragged tone and can get there with very little fiddling, and my Bugera V22, pedals, and Laney cab deliver my Jimi fantasy moments. This will ring and twang as well. If you're looking at Squiers, or other Strat style "budget" guitars the G&L Legacy deserves a very close look, I think you will be surprised by the quality and the tone at this price point.

                          G&L has great electronics - American made. In my opinion, there is no better buy on the market. Sounds better than most high end Fenders.

                            I bought this guitar from MF as a used, MINT condition item and it was in fact MINT. There wasn't a flaw on it anywhere, and the protective clear sheet over the pickguard was still on. It was 'set-up' out of the box. No bad or sharp frets. The neck pocket it tight. It needed some playing time on it to get it "broken in" to get that smooth fretting and bending feel. Vibrato arm, extra spring and all allen wrenches were included. This is a beautiful guitar but I think the industry calls the color 'vintage white' instead of the advertised 'olympic white'.

                            UPS accidentally dropped a heavy package on this guitar box, so before accepting it, the driver suggested I open the box and look it over for damage. It was packed extremely well from Musician's Friend and no damage had occurred. I bought it with no case or gig bag so MF wrapped it well for shipment. Thanks to them.

                                  I don't own a Strat like guitar and I had sustained a serious injury to my Les Paul Custom, so while I was stewing over the damage, I decided to treat myself to this G & L. After receiving it, I spent some time doing a string change and setup as well as trying to adjust the intonation.The pros - the sound is fantastic. The pickups are great and it plays very nicely. The only issues have been with the low E string. I have the action bottomed out and I can't quite get the intonation right on it, so the next step will be a fret level. All in all, it's a nice instrument at this price point and I'm not disappointed!

                                        I like and play almost exclusively archtops. Somebody should have told me how much fun (and different) strats are to play! My archtop beauties are all on the sidelined for now. I picked this up cause I loved the matching ASAT that I bought a few months ago, that's another find especially when they are on sale!
                                        I got a ton of (solid body) guitars for what I paid. I love the raw throw back feel of the satin neck finish (the new tone control system is also nice from my perspective, may be not for purists though?)
                                        It arrived fairly playable , but I'm used to jazz rails and big bodies. It'll need a good setup once I can stop playing it long enough. Maybe I'll alternate the strat with the tele and make 2 separate trips to the luthier so I have at least one on them to play.
