no Tyler Variax ever near Montreal Quebec & no shipping online to quebec!!!
by Euripide on 2011-03-23 16:38:10

I called all line6 authorized dealer in Montreal & none will have Tyler Variax in their store!!!! When I check online to buy one (Musician friends, guitar center, amazon,etc) none are authorized to ship to Quebec!!! What can a poor boy do in such a case? Any folks at line6 who could help me? I want to buy in May a blue JTV-69.

Thanks in advance,

PS The whole story makes no sense at all!

I live in Ottawa and I've never seen a Variax guitar in any of the Line 6 dealer stores here, either. But that just means they don't/won't carry them in stock - it doesn't mean they can't order one. I believe I could order whatever JTV I wanted from a local Line 6 retailer. I may have to put up a fuss to make them do it, but I don't think they can refuse. If they did I would report them to Line 6.

It makes perfect sense.  Last time I checked, Quebec had voted to separate from the rest of the planet...  so kind of hard to ship a JTV to you.

I wasn't expecting that some power users will use this community support site to say almost anything : go figure what a non-Canadian will believe of that non sense....

Apparently there are no official date yet as whn the Tyler Variax will be available in Canada (hopefully before summer). Could someone at Line6 confirm?

Well now,  - that's the $64K question that's been hotly discussed for some time, and not only for Canada. For the latest status........

Thanks Silverhead,

Unfortunetly is kind of hard to retreive information from this thread since it is quite big & most of the discussions over there are not related to the specific topic (or issue) of the expecting releasing date....

Thanks Silverhead,

The end of summer or next fall is a little bit far away in time ....

It seems I might be able to order online from one store the US: I think I will go for it in May. The canadian dollar is higher than the US dollar, but the canadian price will be higher. It's like buying cars in Canada: is it the resellers who are "greedy" or they think canadian dollar value is still 65cents US?

Just remember, Euripide: you buy from a retailer in the states, your warranty will be no good up here.  If you're good with that, by all means, but it's something to keep in mind.

Thanks sparkyERTW : it is true that with brand new product the garantee might be very important....
