G&L has some good Black Friday deals right now, especially on this one: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... lacid-blue - I'll be damned if that isn't the best money you can spend on a brand new guitar right now.

Also, they have a new model called the Espada that looks SUPER cool, and I'm surprised I haven't seen mention of it anywhere else: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... sonic-blue

This video has the two moderately tolerable guys at Anderton's touring the G&L factory plus getting a look at Leo's original plans for what became the Espada. This was around the time of the 2019 NAMM show when G&L announced it. Also, Anderton's had a special run of sparkle finishes being built at that time. (And you get to see the sparkle booth!)

I'm sure some Fender dealer in '64 looked at the new Duo-Sonic II and thought, "That's not a Duo-Sonic. That's a Mustang".

G&L posted a lot on youtube a couple years ago when the Espada was launched. It’s a cool story and seems like an awesome guitar. I haven’t been in a guitar store in almost two years, so I haven’t seen one in person yet.

Here’s a cool video about a modded SC-1 that Robert Poss from Band of Susans sent into G&L for work.

I’ve played the Legacy every night, I just can’t put it down. The range of tones available is just amazing. There has been some discussion about the advancement of single coil technology in the past year here and it’s been in these guitars for decades.
Between the MFD pickups and the advanced tone controls, these guitars are absolutely the next gen . I don’t feel too badly about my ignorance towards G & L, they are shockingly under the radar and my radar sucks anyway . Of course it came from Leo.
