G&L USA Legacy HSS Guitar, Shell Pink, Rosewood Fretboard


Player's Perspective

G&L has earned a reputation for American-made consistency and quality without exorbitant price tags. Now in a new Shell Pink finish that looks awesome and vintage, this guitar is classic and versatile. This Legacy HSS puts 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 S-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 cleans.

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 that 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™.
