Re: does vai still use the Legacy on tour?
If you like the Legacy tone, which is in my opinion very thick and midrangey. The JSX can get close to that. The thing about that kind of tone is. You better be playing spot on. You will be heard playing perfectlty, or you will be heard dropping notes. It does not sit in the mix. It stands out and says, Hey, listen to me! I had one, my friend had one. For unknown reasons, his was a bit more touch sensitve than mine. I usualy ran an eq in the loop, and an overdrive, NOT didatortion pedal in front of the head witht the head gain low enouch to match 38 Special type gain. The Legacy has the most 'explosive' clean I've heard.
