G&L LEGACY3SB Tribute Legacy Guitar 3-tone SB w/ RW Fingerboard
G&L Tribute Legacyâ¢ Electric Guitar in 3-Tone Sunburst FinishThe G&L Legacyâ¢ blends contemporary refinements from the Leo Fender designed S-500â¢ and ComancheÂ® models with classic Alnico V pickups. If your holy grail is faithful Alnico single-coil tone with modern refinements and superb craftsmanship, the Legacyâ¢ makes for an excellent choice.The Legacyâs vintage-spec CLF-100 Alnico V pickups have that unmistakable chime and quack reminiscent of the best examples from the late â50s, thanks to the work of G&Lâs Paul Gagon. Gagon found his inspiration reviewing original prints stored in Leoâs private laboratory at G&L, but that was just the start. 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 â50s, all on a quest to discover where the real mojo was- and wasnât. 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. Gagonâs 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 Leoâs PTBâ¢ (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups for dramatically more variety than the vintage setup. Whatâs 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 Leoâs own modern refinements. And now, itâs available at a price within reach of every working musician. Once you play a G&L Tribute Series, youâll never look back.
