A Versatile S-Style Guitar with Classic Alnico Single-Coil Tone and Modern Refinements Faithful to Leo Fender’s Legacy of Innovation
The Left Handed G&L Legacy Tribute model is the perfect for anyone looking for a guitar with classic Alnico tone blended with modern refinements inspired by G&L’s Comanche and S-500 models. The Legacy’s vintage-spec CLF-100 Alnico V pickups retain that unmistakably classic tone reminiscent of the best music from the late ‘50s, thanks to the great work of G&L’s Paul Gagon who found his inspiration for these pickups while reviewing original materials stored in Leo Fender’s private laboratory at G&L. With the addition of Leo Fender’s PTB™ (passive treble and bass) tone control system, it is possible to manipulate the Legacy’s tone to suit your style of music in a way that is impossible in a classic S-Style guitar.
The Left Handed G&L Legacy features a lightweight yet resonant double cutaway Swamp Ash body in a classic sunburst finish, and a bolt-on Hard Rock Maple neck with 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard. The body is light and well contoured, allowing easy access to the highest frets. With a Medium C neck profile, the Legacy Tribute model is comfortable and easy to play. The hardware includes a Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a refinement that allows players to pull notes sharp or perform dramatic tremolo dives with unsurpassed ease and stability, and die cast 18:1 ratio, sealed-back tuners and a bone nut for enhanced tuning stability.
