Hey Line 6 community, I'm looking for advice on a Variax transplant. I'd really love a Telecaster Variax and I'm wondering if the project could be simplified by NOT transplanting the battery and knobs etc. I realise this may seem strange but I got to thinking that the guitar is powered through the Helix so the battery would be redundant and also all variax presets are controlled through the helix also. So, is it possible to have a functioning Helix controlled Variax without the hassle of transplanting the whole system?
Hi - I know some of you out there are hoping to upgrade some of your gear, so maybe I can help you save on eBay or Reverb or Gbase fees. I've been spoiled with a modded JTV69 that's got a Moses graphite neck, locking tuners and JBE pickups. Looking for a #2 (or maybe a new #1) could be a 69 or an 89 or a Strat-ish style transplant (the last, only if it's a bug-free install with properly shielded cavity, etc.), but want to see something better than stock. Pickups upgraded to a noiseless variety, locking tuners, I'd be SUPER happy if there were another graphite necked one out there. No Floyd Rose please - I change strings too often for that - standard trem or hardtail. Hit me up with DMs if you're interested. Pay by PayPal, would require shipping to NJ. I can pick up within most of NJ and NYC. Whatcha got?
