My friend has one and he says it sounds awesome, I've never seen it though so he might be biased. But I'd definately think it's worth trying out, never buy an amp just based on other peoples opinions.

I'm sure it would not be the same sound like from the Vai's legacy but hey, try it somewhere before considering buying it wink.gif

That is probably 100 % true,you can never have the same amp/guitar
like the guy who signed it wink.gif

But I heard something else too,maybe year ago.
There was a rumor on few forums about some plastic piece inside power section in Legacy,
not sure if it was combo or head and how many watts.
Anyhow,they said that Carvin made few series of Legacy with that plastic part
(should have been metal) and it gets melted after many hours of playing... blink.gif
Check it out,I can't recall if that issue has been solved but just to be sure smile.gif

I played Legacy while trying out a JEM in the store and i absolutely loved the clean channel. I couldn't hear a decent distortion because they didn't let me turn the amp loud to hear the real distortion of it so i don't know about the drive channel.

I believe it has drive channel but it's been made to be used with a pedal or som,
it doesn't have enough drive by itself,as far as I've hear...

Steve love to go from clean to crunch to full drive all in one song, in Tender Surrender I think he uses his volume knob to go from clean to crunch in stages, then kicks in a pedal for the high gain section, so I am guessing he had the Legacy drive channel designed with that in mind.

i was just suprised at how cheap it was... i mean most sig amps are so expensive and hard to get like slash , n wylde.. not that id want one of them but 800 bucks for a new head sig sounds kinda too good to be true... haha

sucks if u would need a pedal on it though, thats why i love the 5150 lots of distortion..
