This is my latest guitar which I had to buy after borrowing a friend's James Tyler Variax.
Having played one I had to buy one and so reluctantly I sold both my original Variax 700s.
Variax guitars are a whole guitar collection in
one guitar and this JTV-59 is pretty looking guitar and is just a faboulous guitar to play.
The Variax 700 was a great guitar but this so much better and having a serparate knob for tunings makes it even more versitile.
It has some great sounding Telecaster, Les Paul,
and Rickenbacker 12 string sounds along with super accoustics and
even a banjo. I used the acoustic setting at gigs wherte there isn't room or time to set up several guitars.
Using these guitars in conjuction with my Line
6 Pod HD 500 gives me total control of guitar sound and means
for many live gigs I can have all the guitar sounds I need form one guitar.
