  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, long story short, I auditioned for a "local band needs lead guitarist" spot 2 weeks ago and got it, first band in about 20 years :) Anyway, they do a lot of songs I don't necessarily like, but that originally were done with Ricks (like Tom Petty/REM type stuff). So, I was thinking I might...

    Thinning the herd a little to pay off some old purchases and fund a few new ones. Bro prices in effect.

    Same Variax guts as far as I can tell, but looks cool. Also, 27-inch scale.

  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi! I'm considering buying a Variax JTV-89 and I have a couple of questions I hope you guys can help me with. First of all, I am more or less only interested in hi-gain stuff, and I will hook the guitar up with a Pod HD Pro. I will only use the guitar in studio. Sound kind of similar to...

    Was going to put this in the Ebay thread, but I figured people might be interested and find it easier here. Mirrored Variax Jem

    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/JTV89BK/ Damn good deal for what amounts to a Variax that plays like an Ibanez and is made by the "PRS SE" factory.

    I got to play a Line 6 James Tyler Variax today, specifically the JTV69, which is the “Strat-ish” model with an alder body, 25.5″ scale maple/rosewood neck, and two singles/one humbucker pickup configuration. I played it through a 2×12, two channel Fender of some sort, all tube, as well as a...
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi! I just get a variax 500 for clean and acoustic sound, I think this guitar is crap for any other stuff, but for getting clean sounds, this is priceless, for about 250$ you get a wide variety of sounds, and combined with a good amp simulator like axe or kemper, it gets WILD!! Well, check it...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    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...
  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Worth it for a few hundred to fuck around with? I see they pop up pretty cheap now and then, and Warmoth also makes parts for them too (300 and 500, I think). The older one sounds more piezo-y, but still not bad. Both sound like shit on 12-string and dobro, neither of which I'd use that much...
