G&L Tribute® Series Guitars
Legacy™ Flametop - Guitar Center / Musician's Friend Exclusive
Shown in Trans Red
Available exclusively at Guitar Center stores and Musician's Friend, these Legacy models feature a flame maple veneer top over a lightweight mahogany body for a sleek, modern vibe. Each delivers the classic tones with the modern feel you'd expect in a G&L Legacy, and every one is fully inspected and set-up in the historic G&L factory on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, California.
The classic tones get started with vintage inspired pickups featuring authentic fiber bobbins, Alnico V magnets, 42 gauge wire, even cloth covered leads. The signal is then fed through 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 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 is all about honest, classic Alnico tone complemented by Leo’s own modern refinements. And now, the Legacy Flametop range adds more visual excitement. Visit your Guitar Center store to experience them for yourself, or click on over to see them at Musician's Friend.
