G&L is the final legacy of legendary guitar builder Leo Fender. Creator of so many iconic instruments, Leo continued to re-work these designs when he founded G&L in 1979.
The Legacy is an evolution of the classic S-type guitar, but fitted with modern refinements whilst staying true to the vintage look and sound of the original. The Irish Ale finish is a limited edition spec, so grab this guitar while you can!
The Legacy has a comfortable, easy to play “Medium C” neck profile and a spacey 12” fingerboard radius. This has more in common with contemporary Super Strats than it does with traditional models, making it more suited to playing leads and bends than on vintage radius fingerboards. The maple fingerboard also makes for a smooth, classy playing experience.

These were inspired by original prints found in Leo Fender’s G&L lab and are the result of extensive studying and supreme pickup wirer craftsmanship from the '50s. All that hard work has paid off, as the Legacy produces a bright, versatile sound.
The Leo Fender-designed Passive Treble Bass system adds greater functionality and flexibility to the tone controls, allowing you to shape the bass and treble with excellent precision.
One of the significant innovations on the Legacy is the Leo Fender-designed Dual-Fulcrum vibrato bridge, which allows you to bend up or down with ease and greater tuning stability than its vintage counterparts.
