I think I remember something about a band member of the AI house band endorsing the variax and HD500. Or maybe that was the SLN guy. I do remember seeing a variax on stage before in another season.

paused the recording and showed my kids...who were of course not particuarly impressed
I saw it too (Just last night... I had the show recorded).
I did the same thing to show my wife. Paused it and was like... "Look, its a JTV-69, the strat version of my guitar".... She did not care either.
I jumped on the forums to share the news when I found this thread.
Your post made me laugh.
My wife did find your comment amusing also (of course I had to read it to her). Then I think she mumbeled something about me being a dork or something... LOL
I first noticed it by the selector switch at the top of the guitar.
Makes sense though... They have to cover a wide variety of sounds.
I thought I saw a variax last season as well, but I never could get a good view of it.

+1 for pausing and wife saying something like "whatever" ... me too
I have always thought that Line 6 gear - JTV and POD would be absolutely ideal for this sort of thing where the band plays any and all kinds of music.
I play both at church, which is a bit similar - works great.
