Ehhhh, I didn't really like 'em. I played one and I wasn't too impressed. It sounded like it MIGHT have had a busted tube.

Mehhhhh. Tried one in a bit of a hurry, but I spent about 5 minutes on one. Couldn't get a sound I liked out of it. Granted, the guitar I was using had Carvin pups, which blow, but still, I didn't find the amp impressive. Maybe if I actually sit down with one and play for an hour or two. . .

But as for now, nope.

I wish I could play one...

Maybe I'l just get an Uberschall

uh the'ye not bad, but they dont have a very responsive eq... i like my X-100b much better, and you can find one of those easy on ebay, or try th V3 which is way versitle

It depends a bit on the music you play but the most liked Carvin amp is the MTS3200.

What sort of music do you play? For the $1000 you'll pay for a new Legacy there are some solid other options.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

The clean channel is honestly the best I've ever heard (yes Fender Twin, you suck in comparison)

HOWEVER: The lead channel has a very distictive voicing. If you like it, great. But if you don't, look elsewhere.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

ive played them, good amp but the X-100b did sound better to me and i believe the legacey is based upon it, also carvin pickups are pretty good, ive played a few california customs and they had really nice warm responsive pickups, i was playing pentonic scales forever with them and switched to the neck pickup and did some octave jazz stuff and sounded great through a marshall dsl combo

haha I'm kidding...no uber, atleast not yet

I actually decided to give in and play in my friends band, all great musicians, I guess you could call it a hardcore band, I dunno, they're good, it's catchy and fun.

So yeah, I get to go amp shopping

(Trust me, im still all blues jazz and funk )

The Legacy sounds awesome, it's hard to get a wide range tones from it without pedals, like one guy said it has a very distinct voicing. Basically it's chocked full of tone, sounds beautiful, great for sustain, but it sounds like vai alot of the time unless you use pedals to modify the tone. I love vai's tone, so that'd just be more reason for me to buy one. Reliability is supposed to be suspect, but I only played one, don't own one, so I can't comment.

input jacks get loose easy, and they tend to crap out after a few years ( my fellow guitarist had one )

Those can be replaced fairly easily though.

yeah but what a pain in the ass!!! plus if you screw with it you void any warrenty, which double sucks. Which is why my buddy sold it and switched to a fender performer, which is a hybrid that sounds more ss than anything.

Still the legacy isnt nearly as versitle as say a V3 or a mesa mark IV or Carvin X-100B

I would go with a Mark IV if I were in your boat, good for hardcore and it would give you a different flavor for blues/jazz if you ever wanted.
#19
I have all the flavor for blues and jazz I need

and I hate mesa's, so don't even bother trying to sell em, I've played em all, and they don't do it for me.

^nuts.........

You have a Fuchs and now you're reviewing a Legacy ??

Wow, I never that was possible ??

Anyways, the Legacy I tried sounded pretty big, *which is good*.........
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!
#23
Since a Fuchs and a Legacy sound the same..

I have expensive amps and cheap amps, I still play my Champ and Blues Junior a lot.

I should also mention that Legacy cleans make Fender cleans sound like Krank cleans.

Yeah. That's right.

The Legacy has a better clean channel than Fender.....which is really saying something.

That's like saying the Vox AC30 cleans are better, no they're just both good...

How old are you............ Can you do Allan Holdsworth stuff ??

Sorry man, but, I read all the lessons on chicken pickin but still couldn't understand it, heck the Hopscotch was an easier lesson!!!

18, I've tried some holdsworth stuff, I was/am fascinated with Dimeola and John Mclaughlin...I've been working on my classical chops as well.
Jazz is fun, love playing the blues...
Holdsworth is good, but never got into him as much...
