What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Balancing the classic clarity of single coils and the thicker, creamier sound of humbuckers the Legacy Special really gives you something just different enough from the classic design. Everything about this guitar just screams "usable", noiseless operation, a silky smooth Dual-Fulcrum tremolo system, and Leo's PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) controls for tone dialing of the highest order!

SP Luthier Notes: Fret cleanup and setup

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The G&L Legacy™ Special blends contemporary refinements from the Leo Fender†-designed S-500™ and Comanche® models with potent blade ‘buckers designed by Paul Gagon . And not all blade pickups are the same; while all humbucking, there’s a fine line between going for power and losing that characteristic chime and quack or classic single coils. If you’re up for a meatier tone but don’t want to stray too far, the Legacy Special makes for an excellent choice.

Just like the Alnico-equipped Legacy, the Legacy Special includes 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 Special 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 Specials’s hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, while its 12” radius lets you bend notes deeply and its medium-jumbo nickel frets deliver silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious deluxe Tolex hardshell case, you’ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that’ll have your pulse racing.
