I drooled over the legacy amp setup, but considered it too expensive since I'm not in a band. Then, a year or two later, dropped the bucks for a Fender Cyber-Twin SE. Plugged into it one day in guitar works and played for like 20 minutes with no end in sight. For somebody not playing in a band, where a specific signature sound isn't needed, it's just great.
I've got an ibanez Roadstar II (old school), fender strat with bill thompson pickups, a custom heritage 140 and a taylor 312ce. Looking forward to getting the carvin as I've been drooling over them since I was 17. I know I said that the heritage would be the last guitar I bought, but maybe this one will be. As you said, not playing in a band leaves you short on justification points with the wife.
I sure do enjoy them all though. The Ibanez is probably the least played since the Heritage plays better, but it was my second guitar and after selling the first (a Peavey T60), I can't part with this one. It's one of the early marine blue quilt tops w/a matching headstock. Quite beautiful and plays quite well.
How is the legacy amp? I've heard good stuff about it. Only downside for me was that from what I read, it sounded like an amp that would benefit from experience with playing live, loud and with other amps (which experience I don't have).
As for the Carvin's - it was a tough choice picking one... sorta wanna order a half dozen, don't you?
