    I saw that early yesterday when it was posted. So far, 305 people have seen it and nobody has placed a bid.

    The HB in the bridge turned me off. Not that I need another Strat but I have been searching Legacy's lately for some reason... Great guitars if you're looking for a Strat style.

    Crappy pictures, funky crack at the neck pocket and someone hacked a humbucker in there.

    A really nice G + L can be a joy to behold, a wonderful instrument.

    But when these things have had a whupping put on them, I just don't want it around. Heavy use can make any guitar unplayable, and mods and abuse bring the value down next to nothing. Just the way it is.

    ^^^ Agreed! Could be a good player or could be a dog.

    Where do you get that this guitar was "hacked" up with a humbucker, has a "funky crack" at the neck joint, and has had a "whupping" put on it? It looks like a killer buy to me. That "crack" in the paint at the neck pocket is common for alot of guitars and do G&Ls not come already routed in the bridge position for a humbucker? I believe they do.

    Looks like a killer deal to me for someone that actually plays and not just collects museum pieces.

    For whatever reason, the Legacy has zilch resale value. I don't have a clue whether the humbucker hurts or helps. But ya might just walk away with a great player at a bargain basement price.

    Yeah. G&L Legacys come with the "swimming pool" route and can be bought in a variety of pickup configurations. The paint crack on the neck pocket happens to around 30% of bolt in guitars in my experience[1]

    1) Out of my non-statistical sampling of around 25 of the things anyhow ;)

    I've seen it. I probably would have pulled the trigger if the BIN was higher :)

    Wow, I can't believe this is still there.

    I've got somewhere over 80 bolt neck guitars, nary a single one with cracks of any kind around the neck pocket. Including all 5 G + Ls. I've given away about a dozen guitars in the last year plus, none of those had cracks there, either, even $ 69 Squier 51s.

    Agreed about the swimming pool; I find it is very hard to match an outside pickup up, output wise, on a G + L, altho those alnico Vs might be the easiest to match. Replacement pickguards are not cheap, either.

    Looks more like a bite out of the pocket.
