Mostly an excellent product

Chris897, 27.11.2013
With regard to buying B stock instruments, all I can say is that this one did not display any obvious signs of use, other than the fact that the packaging had been opened & resealed. Only a direct comparison with a brand new one would indicate any differences.
The relative qualities & vices of this guitar are well reviewed in the music press.
One never gets away from the impression that there is always a lot going on under the bonnet, as it were. In these terms it is a truly amazing piece of kit. Questions of reliability however could only be answered after much more regular use.

Top guitar

Fredy, 15.09.2011
I already liked the first generation. This 2. is very well done. Above all the processing is to compare with top models. James Tyler did a good job. Many things are, and remain a matter of taste.

The acoustics models have been improved above all in sound sound. And the new piezo pickups have been improved. The battery is really ne good thing. However, I wonder if I can replace anyone. Sorry, no replacement battery is available yet. Thomann will certainly have this in the program soon.

For me the Variax is a super thing. Especially in connection with the POD HD500. You can program the sound. Set the guitar type, etc. And then you can concentrate on playing. But you can play quite well "normal". The built-in "normal" pickups are very good. Comparisons with my "normal" guitars need the Variax at all not shy. However, it needs some knowledge. Just plug it in and think it's all good, in my opinion is not in it. You have to deal with it.
For how do you want to use the advantages of the individual models, if one is not a little in your peculiarity knows?

Disappointing are for me the handling of the program "Workbench". This is the program where you can set the Variax. So virtual changes of parameters - virtual pickups, etc. The program is not "state of the art". Where you can work with it. And it is free. Workbench interface - is included with this Variax.
And is included in some POD but also.

All in all ne recommended guitar

For my first generation, I never had a failure. But it was used extensively on stages. So I also expect the new no failure.
