  1. I always wanted one and now I see not only have they been discontinued and are very difficult to find? Was there a problem with the model? Were they just not successful? I played one once about ten years ago... It seemed like a nice guitar... Anyone have one they want to get rid of?
  2. So I am a relatively new Variax owner (JTV-59), and I like the guitar a lot. I also bought a new HD500X at the same time. I do like and use the JTV's acoustic models & alternate tunings, and I have read a number of posts on this forum saying that some people think certain acoustic models were better on the old variax acoustic 700. I recently found a used one for sale in my area, and although I should not even think about it right now, I can't help but think about buying it. I haven't had a chance to see it in person yet, and am just thinking about it now, but if I was to check it out & consider buying it, what things in particular, outside of general condition & playability, should I be checking for in a used variax? Any telltale signs that I should look for in a used instrument of this particular model? :unsure: I don't know if anything else is included with the guitar, like a case, or the power supply box at this point. I also don't know what kind of condition it's in except for what I can see in one fuzzy picture. I'll have to go see it in person to find out. The seller wants $350 for it. Any thoughts on buying a used variax 700 acoustic from anyone?? Thanks! B)
  3. I am very happy with the improvement in sounds with the hd upgrade and I felt that the acoustics sounded better too (especially the 12 strings); however, someone on this forum said the acoustic models have not been changed at all. Have I been tricked by myself?
  4. The JM4 DESPERATELY needs an amp model for acoustic guitars. None currently give you true acoustic guitar sound like AUX does, but AUX can't be looped separately from the vocal. Turning off the amp model doesn't work either, because the acoustic still doesn't sound right in this input. Because of this, I can't even use my mic with it, which breaks my heart because the MIC features are AWESOME. This one change would make the JM4 the perfect tool for the 1-man band, which should be the target customer. We could even eliminate our mixers. How awesome would that be? One perfect little box for EVERYTHING! All we'd need is an inexpensive A/B switch between acoustic & electric guitars. Please go to Idea Scale, Line 6's place to submit ideas, and vote for my post (link below). Maybe they'll perfect this wonderful tool! http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/JM4-the-ALMOST-PERFECT-1-man-band-tool./495841-23508
  5. Hello, I just bought a Republic resonator guitar. It's acoustic only. I'm trying to record it using my Pod X3 and a (admittedly pretty cheap ;) ) microphone. Can someone suggest a good amp or preamp to use? And which settings they use? Right now I'm using the American classic with some compression. Frankly I'm having trouble getting acceptable levels, the signal tends to be pretty weak. I'm just not used to recording acoustic instruments at all... so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. While not technically a post about the JTV, this post exists because I bought a JTV :) I'm selling my acoustic 700 if anyone is in the market for one. I'm located in NC. Here's a link to the ad: http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/msg/3794680159.html Thanks
  7. I have a Variax 700 acoustic for sale. I've recently purchased a JTV, and while it's not quite as good for acoustic instruments as the 700 acoustic, I find that I'm not playing the acoustic as much. Here's a link to the ad: http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/msg/3794680159.html Thanks
