    "People listen with their eyes" - Les Paul

    BillBee - do you remember the name of that guitar?
  2. I found the story of Les Paul's log fascinating especially for Variax players or Line 6 fans in general. Here it is if you never heard of it. http://www.epiphone.com/News/Features/2017/The-Log-Heard-Round-the-World.aspx He takes a 4x4 (honestly!) and builds a guitar with a spare neck at the Epi Factory. Crazy. But he learns "People listen with their eyes" so he bolts on Archtop halves. And people love what they may have only liked before. I know. Small sample size, but give the man some credit for innovation. I've never gigged with a Variax, but I love the Archtop tones and variations that can be built. Do others find that "People listen with their eyes" when they gig with them? Would an audience buy the sound more if the picture matched what they're hearing? I'd have to guess, yes. I've even thought, what if Variax had facades that you could just snap on a Variax "log"? It seems like another way to make money for Line 6, but what do I know? I'm no LP
  3. Ive never understood how a nylon string acoustic didn't make the cut for models, and how something like a banjo or sitar did. A nylon string tone would have been so much more useful. And while I'm on my wish list, why didn't they offer a semi hollow or hollow body for the physical JTV bodies? Variax could have expanded beyond the strat/LP rocker guitars. Is that so unreasonable? What's on everyone else's wish list?

    Peavey Vypyr Vip Series

    I realize that it may be heresy to say Peavey in this forum, but I've actually been considering this amp and I'll like you to tell me what amp would be better. The VIP stands for Variable Instrument Performance for amplification of a variety of instrument types. They have electric and acoustic guitar models (along with bass which I would not use). I don't believe Line 6 or anyone else really models them both in that price range. The low end VIP is $129 street. That's 15 watts and 8" speaker, which is all I need.I just want a decent acoustic sound with my Variax models in addtion to a good clean tone for my electrics. I know, pretty simple. Right now I use a Roland Cube 80XL with a 12" and it sounds fine on electric with my Variax and other guitars. It just doesn't satisfy my acoustic tones. So fire away... would I be crazy to switch to the VIP? Thanks
