  1. Hi, I currently play on a Yamaha Pacifica that I like a lot, it's a guitar really easy to play for me (I have quite small hands). I'm interested in buying a Variax for the limitless capabilities that this system offers. As they sound all similar with the same electronics, I'm looking at the JTV-59 as I really like the design and it would be complementary with my Pacifica which is a "strat style". But I've never played on a Les Paul style and I see 2 opposite camps in the forums. Some people love the comfort of the 59, some others hate it and have sold their guitar for this reason. Can anyone provide a feedback on this guitar and an advice in my context? I know that alternatives more close to the Pacifica neck would be the Standard or JTV-69, but it's hard to tell when you can't try it in a real store. Thanks in advance for your tips ;-)
  2. Thanks a lot, so it seems that I can buy a model from the past years without worrying about the hardware ;-)
  3. Nobody knows if there have been any hardware improvements over the past years?
  4. Hi, I'm looking at buying a used JTV-59 and I'm only considering models between 2015 and 2020 in order to make sure that the electronic and battery is still in good conditions. Since electronic hardware can evolve a lot over time, is there something to know about the manufacturing of the Variax models in the last years? In example, should I look more at models built after 2018 because there have been hardware improvements? (if yes, which improvements?) It's hard to find an accurate information about it, thanks in advance for your help.
