has any1 heard of the bass brand Legend...and if so do they make quality bass guitars?
Ive been trying to find out about these. I found a jazz copy at a store for $150. A boutique bass it ain't but it's the best $150 bass I'veever played. it's black with a black pickgaurd and a maple fretboard. The headstock is an axact fender copy which I thought was strange. I didn't think they could do that. What's yours like?
I have a legend I tried googling thre name but the logo on the headstock on mine looks different from that of the one I found on the internet site. Anyways it was my first bass and it's a piece of crap. The electronics hum, it needs to be set up. The finished neck feels sticky I could go on. Ripping its frets out seem to be the only thing worth doing to this bass.
It is a Corean fender copy, i havent seen them here in Spain but in Venezuela friend of mine owns one and it sux.
I'm pretty sure that when i was 14 Aria made the Legend basses, they used to do an awesome sunburst jazz 4-string. The only burst for £120 i could find! I ended up getting and slightly regretting a jim deacon jazz instead.
I saw that website too. But the one I have looks different too. If you put mine next to a fentder and removed both headstock logos, the untrained eye would not be able to tell the difference. at least not in a picture. The headstock is an exact fender copy. I thought the put a patent on that a while ago. but my bass looks brand new. I like gigging with it when I have to play at a seed joint where I don't want to take my nicer basses.
My first bass was an Aria Legend jazz copy in sunburst. As with the other guys, it had the Fender rip-off headstock. It did me for a while, but the electrics weren't great, the routing for the pickups is a bit ropey, the tuners were bad (they rattled!) and it really needed a good set-up to sort the neck out. The bridge was quite solid though!
The really fustrating thing about it was that everything was just not-quite Fender-sized - different neck pocket dimensions, for example. In the end I defretted it, put a couple of better pickups in it, and bunged a set of flats on. It now sits in a cupboard waiting for me to feel the urge to play fretless.
My first bass was a Legend Jazz copy in red. I was in the shop and they had a 2nd hand one for £100 so i bought it but as i walked out the shop I noticed a huge crack from the top of the headstock all the way down to the nut (i'd never even played one before so didn't yet know what to check when buying a bass!!) and I took it back in and they gave me a brand new one for the same price!
It's an alright starter bass i guess. I thought it was fine until i played others and i realised the difference. It served me well for a while, nothing went wrong. I think it was pretty heavy!
Mine looks exactly like a precision bass very hard to tell em apart and yes mine is a piece of **** aswell just wondering how many ppl had **** basses
