A Versatile S-Style Guitar with Classic Alnico Single-Coil Tone and Modern Refinements that are Faithful to Leo Fender’s Legacy of Innovation
This gently used 2011 Left Handed G&L Legacy, in excellent condition with the original paperwork, is perfect for anyone looking for a guitar with that classic Alnico single coil tone and a number of modern refinements. 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 in Fullerton, CA. 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 with 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 a joy to play.
The hardware includes a Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato, a refinement that allows players to pull notes sharp or perform dramatic dives with unsurpassed stability, and die cast 18:1 ratio, sealed-back tuners and an all bone nut for tuning stability.
