Wow, that man can play! I have heard that the G&L guitars compare very well against Strats. Anyone have any thought's on their guitars?

The G&L's I've played have been better than any of the Fender line. The fit finish, sound and general craftsmanship are higher, or at least they seem to be (we've got a dealer here, so I've seen quite a few). Even the asian made ones are better than the fender equivalents.

The luxury of working in Toronto, is that there are so many places you can try out guitars. I've try dozens of strats and three G&Ls. The Legacy had the perfect neck and a wonderful acoustic resonance - never really notice any sc hum either. I tried it several times, but never had the cash. It finally disappeared :mad: I tried a couple of Tributes (Korea). An S500 and a Legacy. Both felt better and sounded nicer than most all MIM strats (there were a couple MIM strats that were close). I'm just waiting to clear up a money thing and then I'll pick up a Legacy (Tribute). Runs about $30 more than the similar MIM Strat.

There are a couple of forumites here that use G&L. David Henman (former April Wine) is one of them. He has made several positive comments about his.

I saw another Guitar Shorty video. It's a Legacy Special. It's the dual blade humcking pups that give power to his sound.

I was lucky enough to pickup a slightly used G&L Legacy with a switchable humbucker in the bridge for under $500.00. Fit and finish just blows my Strats away. And I actually sold all of them. It's the best hand made guitar you're going to find on the street except for Custom Shop models and you know what they cost!

A friend of mine plays one, it is like a thinline tele, birds eye maple neck and fretboard. I believe it has Hb in it that can be split etc. Beautiful guitar and really nice tone.
