Legend MJV-602 Rosewood-Spruce, Mini-Jumbo Cutaway Reviews
Cripple Creek Music in Ashland, Oregon, sells a product of mine called Googalies which is a high end guitar cloth (www.googalies.com/guitars/. Each time I go there to take them more cloths I play the best, brightest and newest of their outstanding selection. I didn't go in to buy a guitar. I have too many already, ( at least so say my business partners). However, this mini-jumbo cutaway Legend jumped into my hands and really took me by surprise. I have never felt or heard such liquidity in any guitar and I own a number of incredible ones (Taylors, Les Pauls, Martins, Takamine including the LTD98, etc) which my tech, Steve Spalding, always makes better each time he does his magic on them. As far as value I realize that the 2400 bucks I paid is not cheap but certain instruments are worth that kind of money and frankly I would have paid considerably more for this particular instrument. It was logically irresistible.
All in all the Legend MJV-602 combines the gracefully impressive looks of a high end instrument with the rugged playability of a true road worthy design. I have never played a faster acoustic neck or found better intonnation - period. And after the B-Band went in, I am quite simply blown away by the amplified power and liquidity that is preserved for the audience. You will find Legends at top guitar dealers. Play one: Especially you fingerpickers. You will be absolutely amazed.Doug Kennedy rated this unit on 2003-01-28.
