We've just had the latest update on the eagerly awaited JTV Variax. The following update it was what we have gleaned from Line 6:
- The first batch went to the states just before Christmas and there has been a bit of an issue with the 59's, which have had to be recalled. The issue was with the bridge. This has required further development, and means a further and perhaps significant delay on this model.
- The first 69s and 89's are due to hit the UK in late February. When we say limited, it is literally a handful of guitars. The flow should be better from March onwards.
- The RRPs on the new guitar have been increased, reflecting the further development costs. The '59 will now be £1099, the '69 £1049 and the '89 £949.
- The good news is that for those customers that have pre-ordered with SOUND AFFECTS the price agreed at the outset (i.e. point of order) will be honoured.
