Player's Perspective

The Legacy Special is essentially a hotter version of the tried and true Legacy. Unlike a lot of higher-output blade style humbuckers, the pickups in this axe offer a hot, shred-ready signal without sacrificing their single coil roots. They have plenty of power and punch, but you can still get that classic chime and quack if you need it. Such a broad tonal spectrum makes this axe ready for everything from metal to pop. The feel is vintage but the sound is a bit more on the modern side of things. The perfectly dressed and PLEK'd vintage frets and vintage 7.5" radius will feel just like strat-style guitars of old. If you're looking for classic American sound with more of a punch, this is your axe. 

Item Details

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.
