So I traded off one of my JS
-1000 and some cashola and picked up
a slightly used VWH. Except for some trem wear and a dirty fretboard
it's a pretty damn nice guitar!
Gold hardware is soon going bye bye!
So then I get an E-mail from a guy here in Chicagoland that has a Legacy
I put a half assed bid on up on EBay. He was trying to temp me with free
shipping and all this if I used the buy it now in the next 24 hours. So I
send him an E-mail with a flat out offer and point out that I'm about an
hour away from him and I can pick it up!
So now I have a Legacy.
Here is my delema though.
While my girlfriend says that the VWH sounds better then any of my other
guitars (Root Beer Jem, JS
-6, UV777BK) the guitar just doesn't "click"
with me. It's kinda slowly growing on me...but to me it doesn't work
with me like the JS
-6 or Root Beer do, and most especially the UV777BK
that I thought I'd NEVER like. Damn I love all three of those guitars!
Granted, the VWH is slowly growing on me. I was trying to learn "The
Wind Cry's Mary" and with the pickup selector switch in the 4th position
(neck/single) run through my 45 year old Magnatone, WOW what a sound!
But still no rock and roll.
So I get home, I plug into the Legacy, and crank it a bit (after warning the
Girlfriend to run into another room and close the door, LOL). I jam, I rock,
a tap, I jam some more.
I must be doing something wrong. Cause even my early 80s Laney
rocks this thing down and the Laney has a half burnt output transformer!!
Steve Vai I am not, but I *know* when I hear something I like.
Can anyone offer some settings suggestions? I do have several Boss
DS-1s at my disposal, and I am willing to give this KILLER gear a good
try before I give up and move on.
Any help is greatly apprecaited!
