Shrug I’ll survive. I like mono bags more anyway
I’ll be cuddling my case for comfort in December when you have an asymmetrical neck
I don't get the fuss over the neck personally, it doesn't work for me. My buddy got his Thorn neck designed with the same concept, thicker on the high string side and such.
I've always loved the opposite which the original JP's had (thicker on the bass side, thinner on the treble side). But a neck profile is a preference from player to player, and a pretty major one to boot. I wouldn't consider getting the neck profile as a feature unless I knew it personally worked for me as a player.
I really love my Strandberg endureneck which is basically both at the same time. But I’m not super tripping that the legions don’t have an asymmetrical neck, it seems like a fun and unique feature, but Aristides and most other leading brands don’t do asymmetrical neck profiles and they still play great to me!
Eh, I guess I agree with you to an extent. But on the other hand sometimes I want to play a guitar with a thick neck, sometimes I want the paper thin wizard and sometimes I grab my Strandberg.
All just different flavours that make my play different things in different ways. Though I know some people have serious issues with certain neck profiles that I don't.
My main is an 080 and the neck is way too comfortable for my own good. Sometimes I’ll pick it up to just jam and then end up playing for an hour or two
Another one of my hangups with the Legion was that I move gear fast. I would be dropping 2k on an import larada that will then sell for 1800 (At maximum). Not worth throwing away 200 bucks just to try a guitar for me when I can wait, save up more cash, and get a master series. The master series being as limited as it is would sell for what I paid for it.
Take it from someone who is a recovering FOMO impulse buyer. It is worth it to wait and buy used. We all know this market will be flooded in a month's time. For the same price you can buy a RG5328 or 2/3 of a raw Aristides.
Also don't pay inflated prices for master series or J's. If these prices inflate, take a deep breath and relax. It's just wood dude.
That was more for me then you guys. Sorry
@HungryGuitarStudent , hows the spartan??

Where is the legion made?
Darlaaa beginning her lengthy QC inspection process
@HellaSickTight : how is the headstock paint job, notably the paint and wood boundary?
I’d say better than the hero picture on the website, I was only able to find one small imperfection at the top of the headstock. Darlaaa is super happy!
Woah, maybe the pic is misleading but that looks like a big scratch. The paint looks like it’s bleeding a bit, but maybe it’s my eyes lol
I don’t wanna be a downer on your NGD. Thanks for sharing those pics and have fun with your new Legion!!
Hey so I deleted the picture because I’m an idiot, and it was a smudge I was able to wipe off with my finger, and I don’t want a misleading pic to get out. Here’s an updated shot, where you can see just a bit of tape masking blemishes that are super small along the top but no black smudge. You’re not being a bummer at all I’m beyond stoked on this instrument and I find QC and production runs super fascinating, and I want to share with the community so people know what they’re getting. I’d say the QC on this is better than my Strandberg.
Oh that seems way less than the first pic.
I would still email them a pic of the finish imperfection. It’ll help them getting QC feedback. You might get compensation as this devalues your guitar.
Don’t wanna be a downer but you rarely see these types of errors on 900$ Solar guitars, Ibanez or many other brands. It’s not too much to demand that a 2000$ instrument be mint.
Abasi seem to have QC problems across all their runs based on all the user feedback I’ve seen here and from friends who ordered one.
Plus one to this. If you don’t talk they won’t get better.
Agreed, and when you do see them on a Solar, it knocks a few hundred bucks off the price.
Exactly. And they catch it at QC level and sell it as a B stock, so the buyer knows up front what he’s paying for instead of having a bad surprise.
I hope Abasi gets things sorted out, but at this point I wouldn’t order one, especially a 3000$ Master Series or Japanese one.
