G&L represents the continuation of Leo Fender's vision for the electric guitar. During the eleven years Leo Fender and George Fullerton owned the company (1980 - 1991), less than 27,000 guitars were produced. These instruments are the most highly sought, though the instruments produced from 1991 onward in Fullerton, CA are still high-quality guitars. In 2003, the company began a more affordable Tribute series built in China and Korea.

The Legacy was designed in the style of the Stratocaster, with notable differences including a harder maple neck, Dual Fulcrum vibrato, and Schaller tuners. The Legacy used a 3-bolt neck from 1992-97, and moved to a 4-bolt neck from 1997 onward. G&L offers the Legacy with a wide array of wood choices, neck profiles, and other custom factory options, and used prices vary based on selected features.
