This USA G&L Legacy is Leo Fender's next generation Stratocaster. Leo knew he could improve his previous design & improve it he did! The pickups are both warm & clear; Very natural sounding & not harsh at all. And of course the playability is first-rate. Practically everyone who plays a G&L becomes a fan for life & rarely goes back to 'regular' Fenders. This guitar is voiced very well and does a great job of both SRV and 'Country' style playing. This one is the perfect two-Tone Sunburst and really captures that late 50s vibe. The hard-rock maple neck with matching fingerboard is not clubby ('modern classic'), with a smooth satin finish that is fast & never sticky. The medium jumbo frets are just right to be big enough for bending, but not so large that playing out of tune is an issue. Some quick specs; Alder body, one-ply white 'guard & knobs, bone nut, plek'ed frets, and Alnico 5 pickups. This is a lifetime instrument that will make the owner both proud & bring years of satisfaction. Also, the USA G&L's hold their value very well and have great re-sale. Includes original hardshell case,10 year G&L factory warranty, & Certificate of Authenticity. Buy with confidence from Shoals Guitar Boutique, your brick & mortar authorized G&L dealer!
