    I'm gassing again lol. They're carrying a Tribute Legacy in all black with a one piece maple neck for only $399. That's $100 cheaper than GC and I LOVE that color. Looks a lot like Gilmour's black Strat. If they carried them a few months ago, I MIGHT have bought it over the used (mint condition) ASAT Tribute Classic I got from GC. But I've been loving that guitar and I have no regrets. I can't imagine a better deal out there for a new guitar right now. Any Legacy owners want weigh in on this guitar? I haven't played one myself yet, but I've played a lot of Fender Strats.

    I had a korina G&L with P90s that was sublime. I just couldn’t get along with the big neck.

    From mid-2015 until they started their current tiering at the beginning of 2018 those V and U shapes were available on any option ordered G&L (which was almost all of them; at the time all they had that wasn't spec'ed out by a dealer were the Fullerton Standards - just the Legacy and the ASAT Classic with very, very limited color choices). So there may be a few 2015-2017 (or "pre-Custom-Shop") G&Ls out there with the Deep V and Modern U on the used market. Also there were some V and U neck shapes available over the years prior to going to the new set of neck options.
