    I would love a crimson one too.

    Crimson with gold linings would be fricking overload of awesomeness.

    Ooff, the gold is where I leave you brother. I personally despise gold on a guitar, looks gimmicky to me.

    I’m sure this has been discussed a hundred times, but I’m torn between a Larada 8 or and a 080. Which one would you go for, price difference is not and issue.

    I just want to get an 8 string that feels and sounds the best.

    Thanks

    Ah yes I wasnt thinking about the history of guitar int hat domain, I'm not a fan of old ways to do it indeed. I was thinking just a few lines on the body, I prefer black mechanics for example. But anyway yeah it's mostly taste haha, I also like deep green with gold lines, and purple with gold lines, and black with gold lines although that one would be even more gimicky I think XD

    I wonder if they will keep this option for the Master and J series or they will only offer it for the Legions

    I'm really tempted to grab a black 8 just because I dig the design and there aren't too many 8 options with 25.5" on the treble side, but I'm worried I'll hate the tight string spacing.

    Oh cool. The 2 legions I had were decent but just played like overpriced Schecters.

    Boden OS man, we crossed that barrier a LONG time ago.

    I still think it's bonkers to buy anything from the same factory that pumps out PRS SE/Schecter Imports/Chapmans for 2 - 3x the price just because of the name of the brand or a specific design.

    It's cool to see a design widely available, but seeing manufacturers close off their high end offerings and replace it with cheaper labor for the price of what would have equivalently been considered a "high end" guitar price point is extremely saddening.

    What are the improved features they mention for this new batch of Legions?

    It means they are fuck-all neck heavy and I like sarcasm.
