    Yea seems like a lot of their guitars are like 50% off now this month. But for $229 with a note that says fully functional, 1 year warranty, and may have cosmetic blemishes I bit. If it sucks it will at least look cool sitting next to the amp haha. They also seem to have good customer service for lemons from some of the reviews I've seen. So we will see in a week or two. No delivery note yet.

    Seems like any time I see Lucas Mann or Charles Caswell videos they are playing Legator guitars. But I don't think I'd be paying 2k for the CC model.

    WTF does this even mean? World disaster? Be a sheep because I bought a clearance Bstock on a whim from Legator?

    I believe they are trying to say “This is the problem with society. People will buy anything even garbage so long as it’s cheap. And then they’re directly calling you a sheep for purchasing something “just because it’s cheap.”

    Not that I agree or disagree, just offering some input. I’m just here for a review.

    Looking at the site I think it's safe to say it's one of the older models, as they changed the naming scheme.(old was all numbered 100/200/300/400, new has a name, performance/overdrive/x) When they did the overhaul earlier this year they removed all old models for the new section and dumped all the old models into clearance, so I'd guess it's probably not actually B stock, just old stock.

    Personally I'd have gone with the N7-300 for $100 more. Most of the issues I've personally seen with their guitars have been bolt-on neck related, with the neck throughs usually being fine. Not entirely sure what that N7-200 is there, but the 300s are always neck throughs.

    Well call me a sheep or whatever. IDGAF. I'll post if the guitar is worth anything whenever I get it. Yea I bought it because it was cheap, I really wasn't looking to buy a guitar it was an impulse buy, but I also was drawn to site by watching some of my favorite guitar players who both happen to endorse and play Legator.

    I didn't know any of that. Is there like, some kind of archived history of Legator? Aside from build flaws, another thing that I think is a little frustrating is how little information there is about their previous guitars, and even their current ones just have a single, front facing stock photo at times. Legator is such a weird brand! :lol:

    I won't be upset if it sucks though, at the price I'd still consider it to be a good deal even if it have sharp fret ends, or a shitty nut, whatever. I've got files, wood glue, etc. I'm not a guitar Karen.

    I don't know if that's the problem with society, but it is absolutely true that the only reason I bought this guitar is because it's cheap. Well, and the 27" scale.

    Hasn't even shipped yet man, sorry.

    Don't you worry, I'll be excessively thorough and note every single imperfection to the point of ridiculousness, while likely concluding with a 'but still, for the money...' kind of thing.

    I totally get you OP. With those specs it is either a 500$ legator or a 5k custom!

    I also love a good deal, though this seems more like a gamble.

    Looking forward to the rest of this thread! :D

    This guy got the same model OP ordered on B stock clearance. https://www.reddit.com/r/guitarporn/comments/dt5eoe/finally_shes_here/

    "mustard_tiger2112

    Well ive never bought a new guitar till this one. So quality is good. The action set on it is almost perfect for me. Low enough for effortless hammer ons. Super lightweight. And the “blemishes” arent even really there just like a scratch on one of the tuners and headstock but who cares haha. The body style is very comfy up against your torso. Rounded edges but still sharp looking. My only complaint is the pickups could be hotter but im changing those anyways since theyre korean. But all on all im very happy. Well worth the wait

    Seems like a noob though, did he even inspect the soldering or look for borderline microscopic tool marks on the fretboard? Also what quality of foam is holding up the pickups? I only want he high quality foam holding my pickups up.

    I'm sorry but if your guitar doesn't come with the entire family tree of the luthier/cnc machine that made your guitar to ensure it comes from a pure bloodline is it even worth it?
