i've heard they're good, i haven't tried them though- major thing that put me off was the estimated wait...

EDIT: green leds? 27 frets?

tell us how much that comes to!

EDIT #2: what do you need locking tuners for?
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i've never played one or anything but the specs seem very good. good pick ups good hardware (or did you ask specifically for them?) chances are if they are using good hardware (shows they aren't cutting corners i guess)they are putting as much effort into the rest of the guitar. only question remaining is if the sound and feel suits you

I don't need them, but for 10-20 dollars extra they can't hurt if a nut clamp breaks on stage or something...

Meh, they're too overpriced in my opinion.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Jeff Waters seems to like them.


Yea I noticed this, another thing that shows they must be pretty decent guitars...

Dave who did your custom again?

I don't mind the wait. This guitar is going to be for going to college with, so I have about a year.

if you're in the states, guiterrez, gmw, etc., etc. are probably worth a look.

^Thanks a lot! I like yours a lot!




as i said, there's probably better value available in the states, problem is it's not worth it for us, as any savings are eroded with VAT, customs and shipping etc. Here in the UK legra are great value, though.

I like Legras. In fact, I like a lot of British guitar brands. They're really unique.

dude go for it, i mean just look at the pictures... ok that may seem like a dumb thing to say, but i put in a quote for this RIDICULOUS and obscenely expensive sounding guitar, and i tried the most expensive things, and compared to most other quotes ive tried this comes out as the cheapest.

oh man but look at all the pictures, they're so beautiful!

i dont think theyre everpriced, not as overpriced as jackson and ESP custom shops they're pretty ridiculous. anyway if i were you id get one jsut judging by the photos...

yeah. even with amps etc., britain always seems to do its own thing. we seem to like thinking outside the box or something.
