Has anyone installed a Sustainiac on their JTV?

Recommended Posts

The topic says it all...

 

I saw this parker fly signature model, by adrian belew or something, and the guy had variax guts (not jtv) and a sustainiac...I was wondering if anyone had done it with a JTV...I got a sustainiac layin' around and i'd love to fit it to one of my JTV's

A: it Will void the Line-6 Warranty

 

B: If you have $$$ anything is possible

C: the similar Fernandes Sustainer has a similar installation experience. (lots of routing and sawdust and huge risk of damaging your guitar )

I never understood these things. Who needs to hang on a note for a day and a half? If you really have a burning desire for infinite sustain, buy an ebow or learn to play the violin. ;)

The question is in regards to the possibility! Can you? If so, how? JTV guts aren't exactly your everyday  standard guitar wiring!

I heard a sustainiac doesn't work right with a variax. I could be wrong.

 

Something about needing a magnetic pickup to be used in the mix to create the feedback.

It sure can - as the OP said, Adrian Belew had a custom model Parker Fly with the original vax guts, a sustainiac, and a Di Marzio humbucker, plus midi output - must've been no wood left in the body...  no longer available, but here's the specs...
