Very basic for a guitar but unique for the processor

Sami H., 18.11.2015
The guitar itself is VERY mid-pricey average meh. Not bad, not good, just plain "tastes like chicken" feel. Personally I wish the neck scale was 25,0" instead of the fender style 25,5" because now the tele/strat/etc models feel quite right but the 24,75" gibson-style models feel just very odd with the longer scale. The prs-style scale would have been the compromise in-between which would have been closer to each end (or rather, less far away from the original)

The tuning-abilities of the processor are limited, soundwise. I wouldn't use it for a gig nor recording but for songwriting-purposes it is a great tool when searching for an alternate key for a song. Makes things a lot quicker.

I bought my variax with the helix processor and with that combined playing guitar and messing with the tones has never been as much fun and tripping :D
The helix feeds power to the variax so I don't havet to use the recharcable battery. Also, with the designated cable I can control helix from variax and vice versa.

Without the helix the guitar wouldn't reach it's full potential.
The battery works for up to 12h fully charged but as every battery, they lose capacity over time and use. If you spend several hours in a session with this guitar you will end up charging the battery like your phone: atleast once a day. I find that inconvenient but sure you could buy extra batteries or the separate powersupply.

With helix; I would HIGHLY recommend this. Or even with helix's predecessor POD HD.

Without helix; this guitar is still fun to mess around and use as a tool for singer-songwriter or a session guitarist.

Variax 89F

Mark5645, 04.11.2014
Excellent guitar with Floyd Rose Trem. This guitar has everything you will ever want from your Variax, Locking Nut, Great variety of Classic Electric, Acoustic guitars and even Sitar and Banjo!! To be able to swap guitars at the flick of a switch is every session guys dream come true. The Software allows you to build your own guitars including choice of the body-type, pick-ups and string settings. What more could you ever want from one guitar!
