G & L Legacy

All,
Had the excellent experience of playing this very fine guitar today at my local shop in Kelowna. WOW WOW WOW!! You're opinions are most welcome I am going to get one but probably the Invader model with 2 hummers and a mini in the middle. Does anyone own one? Feedback please.

Good axe. Great sounds, great quality, I don't even look at them though, 'cause I'm one of those perverts who like FAT NECKS. Them G&L necks is just too damn skinny.

I just did a post about a trade I did with a Legacy. Superior quality, handbuilt in the good ole' U.S.A., and great tone right out of the case. IMHO they beat Fender any day of the week. Then again, look at the history and name of G&L.

i had done some research and pipe-dreaming about the G&L ASAT. played a few too.

i think the G&L is a great deal. i think for the money, you may be getting better overall quality than many Fenders.

a G&L ASAT is definintely on my wish-list.

I heard a story that ASAT stands for 'A Sweet-Ass Telecaster'. No disagreement from me on that one.

I read online that G&L uses an "unacceptable" method of routing called "swimming pool routing", the same that Fender used in the 80s. Apparently this is a bad thing. But I'm willing to bet this is just Ed Roman blowing hot hair.

G&L's look really nice to me. If I ever wanted a bolt-on neck guitar, I'd get a Legacy Special. Purdy. Good luck with the purchase and keep us posted!

Dunno ... some posts on several internet forums seem to indicate that some people are not very satisfied with the Quicksilver guitars Ed builds (just check out harmony central).

Ed likes to badmouth certain brands.
Actually, you find the swimming pool routing on lots of guitars: some G&L, most Strats before the new American Standard Series ...
Yes, some wood is cut out of the guitar - loss of mass and weight - loss of sustain/sound?
But: many people like to replace single coils with humbuckers and with a swimming pool routing, this is no problem whereas you have to take the guitar to a tech if there's no such routing - or do you want to cut out the space for the humbucker yourself.
If the wood that is cut out is sooooo important for the sound, why do humbucker guitars not generally sound worse than single coil guitars? There's more wood missing ...

I believe he badmouth's them not because of the missing wood, but the fact that in a "swimming pool", the pickups arent in as close contact with the wood as with the individual pickups

I agree with Stefan, I have owned a couple G&L's at one time or another and have never had a problem with them quality wise.


Fender did use the "Swimming Pool" method in the 80's. But you have to be aware that shred was king then and everyone wanted humbuckers in their strats So Fended made them pre routed to accept them. Soundwise it does'nt really amount to a hill of beans. it was simply an option they gave in that time frame like any other. In the 60's they used slimmer necks,in the 70's lighter body woods, did it hurt the quality?.


G&L simply chooses to provide this an option today. All you have to do to decide for yourself which is the better guitar is to compare them side by side and decide which you like the best. That leaves Ed Roman's opinion where it usually ends up anyway...worthless.
