  1. Thanks for the feedback. Yes it was my own work. I will be looking to do another variax soon as I find them a very versatile instrument and lend themselves really well to re-modelling Thanks again
  2. Thank you very much. Its been spotted by an American music mag, so I'm being interviewed at some point later in the week too !
  3. Hi everyone. I have just about completed a custom rebuild on a Variax 700 Electric. I'm desperately trying to find a supplier of legacy spares in the UK. I'm specifically looking for an Input Assembly for the 700 Electric (Jack Plate, DI Input and Jack Socket). I can find a Jack Plate in the US, but the company won't export to the UK... For those that are Interested, a pic or two of the build is attached to this post..... Any assistance would be most welcome. Thanks
  4. Im suffering with similar issues. I have recently just bought a used Variax 700 Electric. The cable was the original and a little short so I decided to have a new one. The HD500 now just loops around the boot up screen if the variax is plugged in, and this doesn't happen with the old cable. I have to boot up with the variax disconnected.
  5. Hi everyone, Im currently enjoying my HD500 and DT25 very much and have been given an opportunity to buy a second hand 700 from a friend. Ive noticed that when you play, there is a definite whistling in the background, which obviously becomes more obvious at higher volumes. I have reinstalled the firmware, which hasn't cured it. I have also played direct to amp which again has made no difference. I have also tried making adjustments to the controls on the workbench, but again no difference. Is this whistling a normal thing with the 700 or is it indicating there is a fault somewhere ? Is it a known fault and is it repairable ? I haven't paid for the 700 yet as I am just trying it out, but if the problem is repairable relatively cheaply then there isn't a problem as I love the guitar. Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks
