    I had been keeping some pedals in the car to trade in case I ran into something I couldn’t pass up. Today I popped into Music Go Round to see what they had. I have an ASAT Special and generally like G&Ls, so I always check them out when I see one. A lot of times they’re pretty heavy but this one is about average weight and was super resonant with great sustain. There’s a little birds eye on the neck, and the color seems pretty close to ice blue metallic. It came with the original white pickup covers, which I’ll probably put on later. Here’s photos!

    Very nice!

    My 12 yo daughter reaches for her G&L Legacy HB/HSS every time, despite it being boring old tobacco burst. She loves the 1NK neck (12” radius) and rolled fretboard edges.

    That's a great neck! Like the color, too. I'd personally keep the black knobs and pickup covers, but it is your guitar. Do what you want with it. :cool:

    Well I decided to go ahead and change the pickup covers while I was changing strings and putting Zymol on it (I know), and it looks like it’s a ash body. I thought they used alder for all of their opaque finishes. Also seems like they’re calling this Lake Placid Blue. Seems a little more gray than other LPB guitars I’ve seen, but it may just be faded.

    Beautiful! I also thought it leaned Ice Blue, but LPB seems to vary, at least on Fenders. Either way, it looks amazing!

    Very pretty, I would leave the black pickup covers on, but that's just me.

    Ash is usually standard for any clear finishes and as you said, alder would be standard for opaque, so maybe someone special ordered this with an ash body. Is this brand new? Did you get a spec sheet with it?

    *edit* I guess it must be used if the pickup covers have been replaced. You can still get a spec sheet from G&L probably if you provide the serial number.

    Unfortunately no spec sheet. I’m guessing this is late 90s / early 2000s from the combination of the four bolt neck, CLF serial number, and G&L stamped neck plate. I didn’t pop the neck off last night when I was changing strings.

    Nice Legacy! Love the color.

    I just got my first one about a week ago and I like it as much as my #1 Strat.
