This is the first guitar I have ever bought sight unseen from the internet. The quality of the electronics are fantastic. the GL handwound pickups are miles ahead of any stock pickups I have ever played on. The PTB system lets you dial in many different sounds because of its adjustment range.

I get comments about how good this guitar looks every at every club I visit.

It is not a perfect guitar, however. Out of the box, the frets need sanding and polishing big time. Very gritty feel that eats up your high E and B strings from bends. There were a few small places on top where the poly gathered and probably dripped from as the guitar hung to dry..only seen by me, cause I know where this spot is. Also, my input jack has become loose. An easy fix, but these little annoyances should have been dealt with at the factory.

Sound and tone-wise, it is great. All the strat quack you want. Splittable humbucker in the back really gets it close to a slanted-back strat pickup.

Humbucker full on is great..plenty of growl and is able to do some serious rockin'. Great output and really pushes an amp hard vs the single coils.

I spent 10 to 12 hours playing all the electric guitars I could find. This is my first electric guitar I have been playing a Yamaha acoustic. I wanted a good med to high end guitar. When I found the G&L Legacy I found the guitar that was right for me. The feel, and the sound was what I was looking for in a electric guitar. I will have this G&L for a long time. GREAT Guitar.
