G&L Tribute Legacy Surf Green Electric Guitar


The G&L Tribute Legacy applies a vintage twist to one of Leo’s favorite designs. The Tribute Legacy retains all of Leo’s technical advancements from the S-500 and is powered by vintage-voiced Alnico pickups. This guitar is also loaded with G&L’s PTB (Passive Treble and Bass) system. PTB functions as a two-band tone control, allowing bass and treble frequencies to be cut separately for precise tone shaping. The electronics aren’t the only impressive thing that the Tribute Legacy has to offer, this guitar is incredibly comfortable and easy to play. During long sessions, you’ll appreciate the lightweight body, comfortable contours, and fast C-shaped neck. To sum it all up, the G&L Tribute Legacy is the perfect companion for the stage or the studio.

Comfortable body shape and silky-smooth playability of G&L Tribute Legacy Surf Green

For many guitar players, playability is the most important thing about a new axe. You can rest assured that the G&L Tribute Legacy Surf Green 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 is created by a trio of single-coil pickups. Dubbed the CLF-100, these pickups are manufactured in the USA and carry Alnico V magnets. These pickups are descended from the bright and spanky single-coils of the ’50s. The same pickups found in the USA-made models, CLF-100 pickups showcase some serious chime. 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 Surf Green 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.
