the Legacy has different pickups and as you already pointed out, it doesn't have the mini toggle the S500 has.

Prices depend on where you live, what finish you want and who you order from.


Legacy: the standard model; comes with vintage style Alnico single coils



Legacy Deluxe: HSS configuration, Alnico pickups (the single coils are vintage style), a flamed maple top, rear mounted controls (meaning no pickguard) and it comes with a hardcase



(this is the old version with a Seymour Duncan; the new one has a side mounted input and a mini toggle)

Legacy HB: Vintage style Alnico pickups and a mini toggle to split the coils of the bridge humbucker



Legacy 2HB: two Alnico humbuckers with the option to split their coils



Legacy Special: Locking machine heads and three blade humbuckers in SSS configuration



S500: MFD pickups (SSS) with a mini toggle

I'd either go for the 2HB, the Deluxe or the Special. It's all personal opinion though; the best way to find out which ne is best for you is to just try them.

They're all pretty versatile, although depending on what you play a bridge humbucker (or blade humbucker) might be a good idea.

Well, some of these are designed to have a vintage like tone. These are usually not too hot and wound to resemble the pickups found in the older Fenders from the 50's and 60's. They tend to have a nice, full, warm tone; ideal for clean playing, or possibly some mild overdrive.

Others are more geared towards modern types of music.

The amp you play them through is even more important than the pickups, though, so keep that in mind.

Try http://themusiczoo.com/

They currently don't have any in stock but they'll most likely be able to order the one you want; they're nice guys and their pricing is good.

The best thing though is to actually try one before buying; try locating a dealer in your area.

As for pricing the Legacy has an MSRP of 1400 USD, which means that you can find it for sklightly above $1000, depending on where you look.

These are the official G&L dealers for North Carolina

Also, the GuitarAsylum and the above mentioned Music Zoo are a good bet. Both are based in NY State, near or on Long Island.

Do you know any places in Southern CA?


These are all the dealers for California, you'll have to look for yourself which you can find in your area:

By the way, if you can make your way up to SF, you might want to give Rocker guitars a call; it's a small shop but they sometimes have some nice deals, it's worth checking if they have anything.


The main problem with finding G&L isn't the number of dealers, but the amount of instruments in stock: usually they only have about three G&L guitars in the store.
