I just received my Variax JTV-59 Tobacco Sunburst the day before yesterday. I haven't been excited for a piece of gear in awhile. Probably last would be my Pod HD500 in 2010, though the possibilities with this guitar are definitely higher.
To be able to change the tunings for when the worship team changes the key of song and play it like I always play has already been awesome during last nights rehearsal. Can't wait to learn the whole setup with the PoD controlling the guitar and really digging in and utilizing all the different guitar models.
The guitar is beautiful and plays really well Intonation and action are both spot on.
One thing I did notice was with the three way switch. Pushing it to the down position it was a little "tight" Works fine, but wasn't as smooth as my Les Pauls. Is this typical? Will it smooth out over time, or should I be concerned with it?
