    I have no idea how they are still in business, much less actually making a name

    Probably because for every 1 person that knows what to look for to spot flaws there are 50 people who don't, who want a budget not-just-black-and-shiny guitar.

    That's very true, but Legator couldn't even get a close paint match for that touch up on the horn for the replacement guitar. Major flaws like that are just head scratchers, because cosmetic flaws like that are noticeable to everyone. But I agree - ignorance is what is keeping them afloat.

    I can't remember where I saw him post it, but he said he did after driving a few hours one way to hand it to them in person.

    They have Jon Donais from Shadows Fall and Anthrax, but he's notorious for constantly switching brands even after releasing signatures with them (ESP, Washburn, BC Rich). I wouldn't be surprised if his next move would be Jackson.

    Other well-known artists who have signatures as well are Joe Cocchi (Within The Ruins) and Josh Travis (Glass Cloud/Emmure).

    I owned a 7 String ninja 200 and I was happier with it than my 7 Hellraiser. I traded it for an instrument I was less happy with (but flashier) and wish I didn't.

    The 200 is obviously in their low end range, but it was a good guitar.

    Bit of a necrobump, but I ran across this on the Ormsby facebook page, I'm sure it will get deleted from there. Sounds like they told the guy he could wait a month for a new one, with no guarantee the quality would be better, or he could pay $300 more (w/$50 discount) for the next "higher quality" model. Legator took all his posts down and blocked him as well.

    It's not even a QC issue at this point, you're pretty sure they don't have any.

    I saw that posted on FB yesterday. Inexcusable. What a total shit bag of a company.

    That's a "hold my beer" hack job. Wow that sucks. I remember getting chewed out by someone for sharing that the used legato I played felt enormous and weighed like 15 lbs.

    What's strange to me is that they have been picked up by some pretty hefty retail shops.

    They've also been pulled by others. They didn't last six months at Axe Music in Edmonton. New instruments were showing up like they'd been dragged behind the truck the whole way there. They cancelled their orders and their dealer contract and sent them all back.

    david james (the admin for the EUGG groups) was talking shit about legator on their page and the eugg run page. Basically said their guitars were terrible quality and they were a huge pain to work with. Legator tried to claim the guy who bought the shit heap shown a couple of posts up above got irate/had unreasonable demands and that's why they blocked him. So now a bunch of people are spamming memes and screenshots of the owner's convo with legator where he was "irate". Haven't had this much fun reading comments since Arnold's legator vid.

    Advertisements: Custom instruments with high-end features!

    Customer service: Were not a full custom shop, and you should be happy to even have those features on a guitar. Hell, you owe US for selling you a guitar.
