Hi everyone! Player from Berlin, Germany here. Just bought a Variax 500 on Ebay from a shop. By the serial number I guess it´s 20 y old but it looks absolutely brand new, even the protective foil was still on the backplate. There´s not a scratch or mark on it. All electronics - after spending about an hour with it - work perfectly. Except ... there´s no sound from the 3rd (GH-) string. The shop says it was fully functional when shipped (Shop is here in Germany) and it even went to a guitar technician a few months ago for inspection. I´ve already read some similar posts on this forum and I had a good luck at the saddles, but there´s is no visible dust or dirt on the bridge. Also the tiny black wire on the 3rd saddle seems exactly like the other ones. I noticed the saddles cannot be height-adjusted, so I just moved it a bit to see if there is a contact issue. Nope. But still no sound there. So I´m asking how do get a support ticket and/or tips on where it can be repaired?
Hi to fellow Variax users in Australia. I am wondering if anyone is interested in taking "excess to my needs" stuff off my hands? All fully functional. Usual wear and tear as to be expected from 2nd hand parts.... I have a 300 and a 600 neck, body, and leftover electronics after transplanting into Strat copies. I have complete bridge/piezo assemblies, as well as a couple of spare, new piezos. The fretboard on the 600 (maple) is more worn, as it was my "workhorse" for a few years, but still plays ok - a fret dress will see more life out of it, but fret replacement is looming. The 300 (rosewood) fretboard has much more life left in it. Also I sanded back the neck on both of them to make them more comfortable in my hands, i.e. "non-sticky". Other bits n bobs include the tremolo springs and claw (600), and vol/tone knobs, pickup selector knobs. All other parts were used in the transplants obviously, including the "bank selector" knobs. I posted an ad on a Facebook page for Guitar/Amp Buy/Sell in Sydney, but no interest was piqued, so I though I'd put it up here. If you're interested, please private message me and ask questions/make an offer on any or all items. Pictures available to those interested.... I live an hour or so north of Sydney, on the central coast, and pick up is preferred, though local delivery/meet up is possible within reason. Thanks for looking!
