G&L® Legacy Cat Guitars


History

It all started in our shop Alleycat Music. We modified G&L asats and called them asatcats. We added an S 500 in the middle, and modified the wiring scheme. After 15 sold, we got with G&L and asked them to make them for us. They made 20 asatcats. 2 semi hollow bodies and 2 solid bodies in red burst with tons of options, and 8 solid bodies and 8 semi hollow bodies in three tone burst in alder and ash. For a total of 20. Those guitars have engraved neck plates. We then began to explore other woods pine and okume. We totally fell in love with the pine. As of now that's the only wood we will use. We will continually experiment and if we like something better, we will jump on it. We did two protos in okume, and twenty two in pine. The first run of pine were stickered x of 16 solid bodies x of 5 semi hollows. After its success, we had to try it in a legacycat. Huge success! . The first run was stickers as well, two as protos, and x of 8 on the others. We are now in the third run total, and second run of pine on both guitars.

All in all there are 36 asatcats proper, some semi hollow and the majority solid bodies, and 15 legacycats total to date. There are about 15 others out there that we ourselves did as previously mentioned. All in all there are 66 cats out there. 51 made by G&L, and 15 that we did. Did I mention we truly do love these guitars. Think BIG and CLEAN!

Feel free to call 814-571-5154 or Email us with any questions. Ask for Mark. Thanks!

Specs for Legacy Cat Guitars

  1. pine bodies on all three models. (up charge)
  2. no swimming pool routes on any of the three models. (up charge)
  3. two jumbo MFD single coil pickups in the neck and bridge spot on all three models. (we totally dig the mfd jumbos and view them as one of Leo's greatest designs ever!)
  4. S 500 in the middle spot mounted directly to the wood on the legacycat, and to the pickguard on the Asatcat, with a small for the S 500. Once again no swimming pool route. (up charge)
  5. some changes in the G&L wiring diagram on all three models to better accommodate the marriage of the S 500 with the MFD Jumbos.
  6. five way switch with push pull yielding seven USABLE tones on all three models. ( so many times guitars have tons of options and only one or two sound great. (we dig all seven on these bad girls!)
  7. all upgrades and options can be ordered on all three models. (finish, flame, quilt, guard choice etc...)
  8. Asatcat features Leo's saddle lock bridge just like the Asat special.
  9. Legacycat features Leo's dual fulcrum whammy, as seen on the Legacy.
  10. all three models can be ordered with any neck options.
  11. all up charges are included in the cost of the guitars, and are not able to be optioned out, we spent tons of time getting these right and don't want to cheapen the guitar by eliminating anything that we thought of to get it to where it is.
