  1. Steve Howe has two DT50-212 amps, and a Blue 700 Electric.


    Adrian Belew,... transplants are a tricky and touchy thing to pull of. I done a few of them,...

    Carlos Rios (left handed player) and Stevic McKay (JTV-89) are among them. Transplants do sound

    different, as the body will have an affect on the tone color. You may or may not discern a difference.

    Check out Steve Howe "Rig Rundown" on Youtube... He shows all his Variaxes, plus his DT50 and his HD500 (though by now he probably has a Helix).

  2. Adrian Belew has Variax electronics transplanted into his Parker Fly signature model, but I don't believe he uses the modelling much....

    True... the Fly signature model is his thing, though I did see him play a few licks on a JTV69 in a Youtube video. Also, according to equipbord, he used a Vetta ll in the past.

  3. I went out of my way to find a 700 because I love the overall look. I read a lot of positive things about craftsmanship, quality, playability, comfort. They were all right on the money. I was pleasantly surprised... And I'm real "picky". The 700 is a keeper. Word out to Yamaha... A made in Japan 700 with JTV electronics and SSS pickups would be a thing of beauty! Thanks!
