  • A First-Rate Stratocaster in All But Name

    Jan 22, 2007 by buffoonery is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Musical Instruments
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Strat sounds and quality without the name plate
    Cons: Cost. It isn't cheap.

    Summary: Leo Fender is the godfather of solid body electric guitars. It goes without saying that he almost single-handedly revolutionized the instrument in the early 1950’s when his California-based firm released the Esquire, Telecaster and Stratocaster ... read more

  • G&L Legacy-4 bolt neck

    Jun 29, 2009 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Great wood, great finish, great components, great pickups, great assemblage.
    They are very undervalued.
    Cons: None.  There is no better guitar for less than 3X cost.

    Summary: Mine is a ash body with translucent finish.  Great finish.  For weight of ash, I would put it in mid-range of other ash guitars I have played, a little over 7lbs.  My neck is beautiful maple with rosewood fretboard  C style ... read more

  • The REAL THING!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Crafted well, great tones, a steal for the price.
    Cons: NONE

    Summary: I've been playing for 38 years and have owned 8 Fender Strats - orig. '61, '62, '70's and '80s American Standards. This not only the best strat I've owned, but the best I've ever played! The feel is incredible, the tones cover a wider range than fenders ... read more

  • This guitar doesn't cut it

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: it's a hot guitar
    Cons: I couldn't play it very well

    Summary: I agree with guitarguy. I mean I've played his guitar and it's just not any better than the very first one that he's ever bought. I'm his girlfriend by the way. I'd like nothing more than to disagree with him and prove him wrong. But on this one he is ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The sunburst looks beautiful!!!!
    Cons: sounds the same as my $150 guitar.

    Summary: When I first wanted a "real" stratocaster guitar I wanted an American Fender strat. Then I listened to so many people say that G&L is 100X better than Fender. I went to the store and played a G&L Legacy, then I played a Fender. The truth is that I ... read more

  • Back to the Fender sound

    Oct 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks and sounds great. Great wood and craftsmanship
    Cons: Could do with a bridge cover to eliminate going out of tune if you rest your hand on the bridge

    Summary: My first guitar was an acoustic POS that I begged my mother to buy me back in '64. It was so hard to play I almost gave up. But I begged my mother further and she gave me $75 to buy a no-name electric and an old oxblood colored amplifier that rolled ... read more

    Pros: Still pretty much hand made, 1/3 less $$ than Fender.
    Cons: I prefer a strat with one tone, one volume knob.

    Summary: I bought a new 1989 ASAT 3 bolt neck in 1989 that I wasn't too happy with. It seemed the 3 bolt neck just wasn't stable enough for my playing so I laid off G&L guitar until last month where I bought a new Legacy with a swamp ash body, sorta heavy but ... read more

  • G&L Legacy, simply the best mass produced guitar made!

    Pros: This guitar will outlast anything that you own.
    Cons: A little heavy, and the price can be a little steep.

    Summary: I first started playing G&L guitars about 4 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. Nothing about this guitar is or will ever become a hinderamce to your playing, whether it be simple Nirvana type power chords or complex blues or jazz riffs. The ... read more
