I just picked it up yesterday and have to say that I'm totally in love with it! It's blond with a maple fretboard, a vintage tinted neck and tortoise shell pickguard. It's bone stock except for a set of Schaller M6 2000 locking tuners. I had never had the opportunity to play a G&L and wasn't sure if it would feel or sound like I would feel comfortable with, but after a couple of minutes playing I knew that it felt and sounded just right for me. Some of the things about the Legacy that I've read about that some people don't care for, the floating trem, the pups and the ptb controls, I'm actually really liking. I did a lot of research on the Legacy before deciding to get this one and while reading reviews can only tell you so much, this time it really paid off. I'm in the honeymoon period now, and only time will tell, but I do really believe that this will be a keeper!
