OVERVIEW

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.

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

The tone on the guitar is cool. You have a treble and a bass on the guitar that you can control. When I put my Metal M. in the mix with some low distortion it made a P90 sound. I was playing thought a Laney Iron Heart 60W tube amp head and a Carvin 412 cab. The swamp ash body is a little heavier than my Fender Strat. but I like it. The neck is a little bigger than the Strat. also. All in all its a nice guitar.

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

      I bought this on the Stupid Deal of the Day. I had been watching it for awhile and jumped when I saw the awesome price! I also own a G&L Asat Special USA. I like this Legacy Tribute better. Had to shim the Asat neck but not this Tribute. The setup is spot on. The pickups sound great, the Blue burst finish looks amazing! Not a flaw on it. I couldn't be happier. The neck is nice and thin. Very comfortable. No sharp fret ends like I've seen on some MIM Strats. It has that great quack that Strats are famous for. I can't believe G&L can make a guitar this nice for such a low cost. I also ordered a Musicansfriend ABS case but have'nt received it yet.
      The only negative For me is the strings are too light for my taste. I'll likely need a new setup after swapping for heavier strings.
