Too many bands on this company's jock because they obviously give away guitars all the time. I mean, good for them, but I don't see these flying off the shelves any time soon.

And that headstock...

Anthrax are only on there because of Donais who is touring with them. Donais isn't exactly known for sticking with guitar companies, just ask Washburn, ESP, and B.C. Rich.

Putting a big ol' Anthrax logo is crazy misleading, as the long time actual members aren't leaving their respective companies.

As for Josh Travis, had to pick an endorsement quick after Strictly 7 went pear shaped.

Has anyone here seen one in the wild, a Legator that is? They're asking Suhr custom money for some of their guitars with "three piece bodies".

So umm... What's everyone's gripe with the headstock?

I think they look good. Not great, but solid. I'd love to try one out, but that's mainly because I'm a huge Donais fan.

First link from the Legator website under the "Dealers" tab. Granted, it's the only one out of three from the listed dealers that actually has Legator stuff in inventory.

Though, from the looks of it, Abraxas is Legator.

Like I said, they're asking Suhr/Anderson/Jackson CS/J.Custom prices for some stuff.

Yeah, not appealing at all. I've seen nothing of interest from this company so far.

Also, a new company emerges onto the scene from nowhere, then starts throwing out endorsements to metal guitarists to gain notoriety for their guitars.

I think they both look good aesthetically, particularly the burst one. I, too, get a bit of a "cheap" vibe from them, but to each his own. If the dudes in Reflections, like them, more power to 'em. They're solid players in my book. Legator's still not my first choice if I were to get a custom built though.

And I do like Reflections, though I will agree that The Fantasy Effect wasn't flattering in its sound, to say the least.

So there's only one dealer stocking them, and they're charging that much?

I guess we'll have to wait for someone who's not an endorsee to take a chance on one of these, but from the looks of things, I doubt the build quality matches the price. I'd be happy to be proven wrong though, as there are some interesting models there.

Agree with above, if the pickup rings weren't there I could maybe see some decency in these guitars, but they just look like beginner ESP's/Schecters with the pickup rings/uncovered pickups combo. Also the price seems steep for what they are - depending how good their own custom pickups actually are.

Also on topic of endorsements, my mate (who is a great guitarist, mind you) hit them up and they said they could shed about 600 off the Ninja 350 Pro, and his band only just released their first EP with about 1,600 fans, and located in Australia.

Kind of seems like they're happy to get any names on their list if they can, but props to them for picking up pretty decent names thus far. It will be interesting to see how they go in the coming months and years

I'll probably get negative rep. because some people here are butthurt as .... but here are my two cents:

Reflections

They seem like they have nothing to give.Nothing original at least.It is downtuned djent.Not even progressive,progressive metal progresses,this is the same shit in every song.A breakdown,a breakdown with a rhythm with a cymbal smashing every two beats and maybe a lead on top,a ''solo'',and then an outro riff.It's generic.Talent,but only on the techinical part,maybe.Creativity,hell no.Even the name sounds generic and gay as .....

Legator guitars

It's like if agile added some more touches to their already existing models.Nothing creative there either.They also,to my eyes,look cheap as hell.Especially their signature models.They are exactly like their regular series with maybe a top wood or different hardware color.Maybe the artist wanted it this way but they look damn cheap.They don't have anything original.I mean,an RGA shape with an agile headstock with slight different changes on the edges,TOM and Floyd rose.10 years before they could have been a success,now everyone sells the same shit.

also,wtf is this shit

Actually thought initially that they were a new line from Rondo.

Maybe it's me, but am I the only one who hates pickup rings on guitars? How much better would both of these guitars look if they had direct mounted pickups? If its got a pick guard, sure. Nothing worse than plastic covering up good wood.

MAXOFMETAL: It's okay, words are funny. While I see how you could have thought that I meant "ignorant" in the form of, "Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.", when in actuality I meant it as "Lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular", which is far from an offence.

I'm sorry you're being so defensive.

Legator seems kinda shady. Nobody has heard of them before, and they're just endorsing a bunch of guys like crazy, probbably giving the big ones an incredibly awesome deal, like a free guitar whenever they want one or something like that. So shady... please, someone on the forum, try one out for us and tell us how it sounded, felt etc. I imagine these to feel and sound very cheap...
And please, don't be endorsed or anything, haha, who knows how many people they've endorsed by now..

Legator Endorsee: "Yeah dude, guitar is great. Built solid and plays like better. Totally worth the $4k that I didn't have to pay."

Six Months Later: "No, that guitar had a whole load of problems. Bad frets, neck warping... wormholes... this other $4k guitar from the brand I'm endorsing now is TOTALLY way better than that other guitar ever was."

...and the cycle repeats...

Anyone remember this thread? It's the ultimate cautionary tale regarding getting in bed with a new company that hasn't established a reputation yet for build quality or ethical business practices.

Now I'm simply on the outside looking in and have no knowledge of the company but I would assume it was a group of people looking to start up a guitar company and purchased several models from an overseas company to use as their own. And as with any brand trying to build hype they flood the market with new signings and by signings I mean people who get free guitars in exchange for them to use a photo of them on their artist page.
