I use the JTV59 with a PODHD500 in my live shows. I've got my electric sounds going to my amp and the acoustics going to the PA.What I'm wondering is, if you just use the Variax as a normal guitar, the pickup selector switch works like it should on a Les Paul.
If you're using it as a Variax, if you flip it while playing, all the sudden, you're on something else.
What I'd like to do is set it up for my Variax patches so that when it flips, it's not such a drastic change of instrument. On some of them, I'll be on something like a Ric 12 string sound, but if I ht the selector switch, all the sudden a sitar, or acoustic guitar or something else is coming out.
What I'd like to know, is there any way that I can make it so the selector switch picks a "like" guitar?
For example, if I'm using "Chime 2" in the center position, can I actually program the up and down positions of the selector switch to say Chine 1 and Chime 3? Just an example.
I'm not sure where to do this. In my HD500, I've got all my alternate tunings and variax models stored, so at the tap of a foot switch, I'm playing, say, a 12 string acoustic with Drop D tuning. Tap another switch and I'm playing a 6 string electric in G tuning.
SO I'd think I'd be able to set it up in the HD500, but I'm not finding that. That makes me think it's in the Variax workbench where I'd do it.
Is there a way to do this?
