  1. Hey specracer,   Came across a thread on your neck replacements for a 69.  Have you gotten that second Warmoth neck with the wizard profile yet?  Wondering how those are performing.  I’ve just gotten a 69 SSH and would love to swap necks.

      I got it. It was my second Variax / Warmouth neck project. The first was a mahogany neck, with bubinga fret board. That is one special guitar. I can't believe how warm the tone of that one is. Unfortunately, the second one with the wizard profile was maple neck and maple fret board with a 24.75" scale length. I liked the wizard profile, but the tone was very bright and I was constantly fighting that in my Helix patches. I couldn't use the same patch for both guitars, they sounded that different. Plus, I decided the 24.75" scale length wasn't really working on a Strat style guitar. So I reluctantly sold that guitar. It looked great. I wish it sounded better. Here's a photo of the two of them together. The Sunburst Variax is my #1 guitar, and I have some pretty nice guitars that sit in their cases because of this one. Good luck with your transplant. I probably wouldn't be playing a Variax if not for the Warmouth neck.

    JTV 59 with small amp

    Been playing mine through an iLoud which is FRFR, makes a huge difference compared to a normal amp.
  3. Wondering if anybody would recommend using say an Amplifi 75 or 150 for home us with a JTV-59?? is there nothing FRFR middle of the road that has the Variax Cable etc without going all out for a helix and FR speaker?
  4. I've just ordered a jtv 59p (lucky to find one used) for travelling. i'm wondering if there is any work around for workbench... i usually travel only with an ipad to avoid damage to a computer in rough climates like thailand... if this is not possible, what is the minimal requirements anybody knows for say getting a super compact cheapo windows machine to cover using workbench..? or is this something i could simply keep on a USB key and launch off a friends computer or internet caffe box?? I've unfortunately never seen workbench live so would really appreciate any help here.
