I have two Variax 700 Acoustics for gigging.

 

I would like to use rechargeable batteries but most are 1.2 volts. Anyone recommend a AA that is 1.5 volts or better?

 

Also:

 

I recently picked up a second Variax and the previous owner may have used workbench. I want to get the guitar back to factory settings and tried the "Soft" Reset but that did nothing. I dont really have the need to purchase Workbench is it possible to go to a dealer and get it re-set? Or??

 

I am in North Florida Thanks,

Vinny

No but 1.2V AA NiMh batteries work just fine.  I use them all the time.  I have two sets that I cycle through.

Ok good to know.

 

Still wish I could get a re-set on the other Variax I emailed line 6-- created a ticket-- that was a week ago with no reply. Hmm

they do.. but the 3 days are business days.. M-F, and its always possible that the holidays have them running a little behind.
