So this is coming a bit late, I'm lazy (sorry not sorry). Better get out that popcorn ladies and djents: Back in November Legator ad's kept popping up for holiday sales on my Facebook. So I checked out their site, despite the scathing reviews of their instruments online. What I found is a lime green LEFT-HANDED multiscale 8-string guitar for $399.99 . . . (lefty jokes start rolling in right about . . . now) 20180203_033229 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Not one single company in existence offers specs of this flavor at this price point, period. legspecs by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Not bad for $400, in theory anyway. Order was placed on 22nd of November, the guitar arrived December 16th. (Holiday rush was the reason I was given when I called them about the wait, I recommend not bothering to E-mail or Facebook contact them, just call) It arrived decently packaged and undamaged: 20180203_033124 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr 20180203_033106 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr 20180203_033052 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr 20180203_033039 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr So how does it play? How does it sound? Quality? Well I took a well known risk on this. There is absolutely no other way to get a lefty multiscale fanned fret 8-string for anywhere NEAR this price point. That being said: It plays like shit. It sounds like shit. Action is sky high (neck pocket not properly routed for angle) Pickups are about what you'd expect out of a base model Ibanez 8, (so utterly terrible) Nut could be spaced better Tuning keys aren't 100% perfectly aligned with each other Zero fret is already wearing from the strings side dots aren't centered well at all neon satin finish is "meh" quality tried shimming the neck with picks and the fretwork simply won't support low action without work. also that fretwork is also poop, some are scratched, most of the ends are decent but not great Some good things: it's a lefty FF 8string for $400? scale is perfect at 26.5-28" It glows in the dark? Weight is surprisingly light Balance also surprising, was expecting neck dive with 28" on the low side Body is comfy, thins down to nice soft edges Neck width, thickness and finish are pretty nice actually. The fan is amazing and I'm on-board for more multiscales. More pics: Action @ 24th fret, the bridge cannot go lower: 20180203_033138 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Poorly executed side dots: 20180203_033147 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Neck heel (actually quite nice). 20180203_033030 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Size comparison with my Atomic CE "superstrat" 20180203_033426 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr o0o0o0o look it glows . . . 20180203_033911 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr Current family picture (missing two) 20180203_033714 by Jared Laabs, on Flickr I've named it Chugnobyl, because it's a radiation green disaster . . . To wrap things up, yes I knew exactly what I was getting into, and I planned on modifying this turd before it even reached me. Once I load it with Fishman Moderns and have the fretwork/action dealt with I'll be giving an updated opinion on it. Not really a $400 guitar when you have to pay for set-up and pickups is it? Well I knew this, I like to tinker . . . Thanks for looking.
