Improved Variax Standard tone by changing body styles

Recommended Posts

The goto guitar models I use are the Tele, Strat and Les Paul models. I wasn't really happy with any of them. They were usable, but not inspiring. So I used Workbench HD to see what I could do to improve the tones. Adjusting the string volume helped a lot. But the biggest improvement came from changing the body style for all three guitars to the Masonite body model. There's something about that model that improves sustain, makes the guitar models fuller and richer, but without loosing the unique character of the pickups. This one change has made my Variax Standard into a much more usable instrument.


I had a similar experience with my old Varizx 300 with the same model and it appears to have translated to the HD models as well.
