I bought a B-stock JTV-89F in summer. The first thing I reacted to was the very odd feel about the neck. It simply didn't feel right. I was too "round", kind of semicircular in transverse section. The next thing was the electronics, where the variax mode simply stopped functioning after the first use! But that's a separate topic...
Now, my question is if any of you have had any experience with Variax Standard you can share with me. The specs say it has a flattened C-shape. I haven't found any info about the shape of 89F, so I don't know if they share more-or-less the same geometry. Also please let me know if you also experienced problems with the electronics and digital features.
