I've seen all the demos, but does anyone have any experience or own the James Tyler Variax guitar?
I have a variety of bands (some current & upcoming) that require a ton of different tunings, acoustics, etc. I'm looking into these as a utilitarian guitar to take care of all the odd stuff that my main guitars aren't set up to do. Since most of my main guitars have tremolos, quick changes in tunings aren't feasible in a live context.
I just bought a Taylor acoustic & a PRS SE Singlecut to add to the collection, yet I will still need to get a few more guitars to have enough for all the alt tunings. I'm seriously considering returning the Taylor (which I don't want to) & the PRS & just getting the Variax.
All I know is that they're too expensive for a "mess around with" thing, which is what they'd be for me. Supposedly, they're a huge step up from the 1st gen Variax stuff.
