The first Legrande prototype had a sound similar to a push/pull but the parts were hand made and the hardware was mounted on a P/P length body with a short keyhead. When we extended the body a couple of inches to bring the guitar back to it's original or more proportionate symmetry, the clarity was lost and no Legrande since then has sounded like the prototype. Even at that, the distinct quality or timbre remains consistent with the trademark sound. So I believe that consistency is due to the sum total of the parts, placement, and the mounting of them, which clones can only integrate a portion of into their guitars for various reasons. Or to put it another way, looks aren't everything.
