Line6 Variax Standard VW

MarioW, 01.04.2017
Actually, I wanted to get me a telecaster because I like this twang and also play a lot of country. But the thought of covering everything with a guitar did not go out of my head. So I ordered og guitar, is not a problem with money back.
It came as usual with Thomann very quickly u. well packed. A gigbag or case is not available. Constructional quality deficiencies I have not found, also the paint is perfect. I had something to think about in advance. Of the neck (flat C - board) since I have small hands & Thin necks. But I manage with this profile very well, actually I've felt from the first moment on "right at home" - but is a matter of taste.
The strings are not for Flitzefinger - I find it good because I also Slide. The Otavreinheit I had something correct, with the supplied tool but no problem. The sound of magnetic pickups is good, goes towards Strat, sparkling wiry modern. Whether the modeled guitars sound exactly like their role models, I do not care afterwards, because they sound good. I had in the run some telemodels played from cheap to really expensive, they all sound different & The expensive models are not always best. You'll probably soon find out their favorites, which you can then store on the two custom benches. To do this you need the software Workbench, which is available for free as a download - fine thing. Converting guitars, tweaking, tuning Poti's whatever works super easy. Acoustic models directly over the amp is in my opinion not recommended, I go directly into the PA. But I had a DI box in between, because I had a strong hum. With a chorus pedal & An A / B-Box in between is everything in the green area. There is a line 6 switch, which is active & Supplies the guitar with electricity so you can (without) play a battery, but one evening is easy.
Afterwards, a helix (or Pod HD 500x) with which you can then immediately ready-made sounds including control of the Variax store can be stored, because if you have to switch the guitar in the title and, The sounds not as eg. Lying on a custom bench next to each other, it can be stressful. Use the rotary selector to quickly find the right position, Selecting the right pickup is hardly possible. As already mentioned, anesten is in my opinion recommendable u. Is aimed at musicians who must be flexible & Not with 3 guitars to the gig. The pure purist will possibly keep distance, which I also understand. I will definitely keep the instrument if it remains reliable, what the future will show.

A versatile guitar

idefix113, 11.09.2017
Contrary to what was said in one of the evaluation this guitars does not need a computer to work. Either we use micro passive (sound approaching a stratum) or we use modeling (strat, lp ...). You can use the guitar stand alone with the battery or pair it with an HD pod that can adjust the effects and the guitar. This is my third variax and overall I am satisfied. I find the handle of the pacifica more pleasant to play than the sleeves of the JTV which are bigger. The only downside is that the vibrato is not set (pressed against the handle!). So I had to fix it myself and as it is inconclusive I will have to have it adjusted by a luthier ...
