Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this USA-made G&L Legacy HB that is easy on the eyes, the fingers, and the back!

G&L has earned a reputation for American-made consistency and quality without exorbitant price tags that other boutique guitars have. This Legacy HSS pumps out incredible sound, feels great and is a great bang-for-your-buck instrument. The sound is richer and fuller than your typical Legacy or strat-style guitar. It packs some serious punch and cuts through much better than single-coil-only models, making it perfect for both heavy humbucking distortion and single-coil vocal-like cleans.

The neck will feel like a familiar friend and the lightweight empress body will allow you to rock out for hours and hours on end without having to worry about shoulder or back fatigue. It balances perfectly on a strap, the PLEK'd frets help achieve super low action, and overall playability is a dream.

If you're looking for American quality but don't feel like spending your life savings on a guitar, this Legacy needs to be on your radar.

Manufacturer's Description

The G&L Legacy HSS fattens things up with a G&L AW4470 alnico bridge humbucker to complement the vintage alnico G&L CLF-100 single coils in the neck and middle positions. Masterminded by G&L VP Engineering Paul Gagon, the Legacy HSS has that ideal balance that’ll let it play well in a variety of settings, and its splittable bridge humbucker will do a convincing job as a single coil with rich, ringing harmonics.

The Legacy HSS brings all of the Legacy features, starting with Leo’s PTB™ (Passive Treble and Bass) system which functions on all three pickups for dramatically more variety than the vintage setup, while the volume pot has a push/pull coil-split for the bridge humbucker. What’s more, the Legacy HSS 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 HSS’s hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, comfortable 9 1/2″ radius and Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets for silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious hardshell case, you’ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that’ll have your pulse racing.

If you’re looking for that extra power to properly rock the house in a classic looking axe, then you owe it to yourself to check out the Legacy HSS.

Founded by Leo Fender in 1980, G&L USA instruments continue to be made in the historic G&L facility on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California, the Birthplace of Bolt-on™.
