JS1000 thru Legacy Combo - How does it sound?

Do any of you play a JS1000 through a Carvin Legacy? I'm debating about getting a new guitar here and I really like the white JS1000. I was just wondering if for some reason they sound bad together or something. May seem like a stupid question but I would rather ask and look stupid than buy a guitar and that I'm not sure of how it sounds with my amp. Thank You

JS1000 thru Legacy Combo

I run a JS1000WH through a Legacy head and 4-12... Iain has a JS through a legacy too, well last he told me anyway!

I LOVE how it sounds... i dont think i would ever want another amp over a legacy *maby to add but not replace*. I like to use an eq to boost the sigional going to the amp to drive the tubes more but thats just because i have a particular tone i go for... it sounds great straight to the amp also.

Also the clean chanel on the Legacy is REALLY good and i like the presence option on it sounds great with the PAF-PRO

hope this helps and ill be happy to help with any other questions you have

and oh ya, you said you were looking for a new guitar... so im guessing that you allready have the Legacy combo? what guitar do you use with it right now and what do you like/disslike about the combonation?

Wow Jay, catching ya in a second post! Your skills seem sharper than a tack! *meant that in a good way* I don't own the Legacy, but hopefully my JS1000BTB will be here by the end of Febuary! I have played the JS through a Legacy when Guitar Center had a used combo there (it was going for $999.99!!!!!) I liked the sound once I got Guitar Center to change the tubes in that thing! It had some pretty beat up tubes in it. The bottom end was breaking up and the sustain was like a hammer hitting a rock. After they changed it though it sounded great! I really liked the way the amp and the FRED pickup reacted to eachother. I'd still rather go for a Legacy head than a combo (I'm a half stack kinda guy). But yes, definetly not a "will seem stupid if you buy a JS" :biggrin:

Hey man are you getting one of the BTB's from Rich too? Are you the guy that has first pick? I know I have second pick *but I figure out of the first 6 that Rich gets in there has to be more than 1 killer one in the bunch!!! *

I do, indeed, have a Legacy 1/2 stack. My TB sounds incredible through it, IMO Only difference is that it has Evo's in it, instead of the stock pups.

which guitar center was that .. san jose? (i notice you're at morgan hill) *I played a js1000 thru it myself - loved the sounds, but being a poor college kid made the 999 a bit much. :-/ *Oh well, as of three days ago, that amp was gone

yup, played the vetta,
it's fantastic, but what i have (pod2 -> 100w crate bass amp fx return ;-)) sounds good enough to last me thru my poverty ;-)

Yes the guitar center in San Jose, Steven's Creek. And yes I believe I get the first picks on BTB's because I ordered mine a smidge before December :biggrin:
