Comfortable body shape and silky-smooth playability

For many guitar players, playability is the most important thing about a new axe. You can rest assured that the G&L Tribute Legacy HSS 3-Tone Sunburst will play exceptionally right out of the box. Guitar players here at Sweetwater say note that the “Medium C” neck fills your hand nicely without being too thick and getting in the way of your playing. The familiar body shape has soft contours that make extended playing sessions more comfortable than ever before. The Tribute Legacy is fitted with a Leo Fender-designed G&L Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato with forged brass saddles. Unlike other S-style tremolos, the Dual-Fulcrum allows you to perform silky-smooth flutters both up and down. For the utmost in playability and comfort, the G&L is a no-brainer.

A tone that’s straight out of the ’50s

The voice of the Tribute Legacy HSS is created by a pair of single-coil pickups and a humbucker in the bridge position. All of the pickups are manufactured in the USA and are loaded with Alnico V magnets. The humbucker, a G&L-designed AW4368, delivers alnico goodness with textured harmonics and impressive power. The single-coils, CLF-100s, are descended from the bright and spanky single-coils of the ’50s and are the same pickups found in the USA-made models. Using the 5-way pickup selector switch unlocks multiple tones and even the well-loved quacking tones in positions 2 and 4. If you’re looking for a guitar with a vintage tone that sounds as good as it looks, you’ve found it. The G&L Tribute Legacy HSS 3-Tone Sunburst is what you’re after.

Leo’s favorite creations

After founding two hugely successful guitar brands and consulting on the side, Leo Fender felt that he had unfinished business in the guitar world. Together with partner George Fullerton, G&L opened for business in 1979 and incorporated innovative design elements into their instruments, such as the Magnetic Field Design pickups, Dual-Fulcrum Vibrato, Saddle-Lock Bridge, and Bi-cut neck design. Leo was so proud of his new instruments that he famously declared that G&L’s “are the best instruments I have ever made.” Play a G&L today and experience the magic for yourself.
