BoogerBruce Posted December 10, 2022 Share Posted December 10, 2022 Gigging player here. Bought the JTV-59 in order to get acoustic sounds on a guitar that plays like an electric. Typically play a LP for the rock and blues band, but occassionally do a country duo where I've been playing my Tele direct through the PA. Sometimes, I want to play acoustic for a song or two, but hate having to change guitars. My hope was to do a custom setting on the Variax that would let me toggle between acoustic, tele, and maybe a strat in the 2 position. I know all of the above is possible........but......I can't seem to get a decent acoustic sound. The two Martins sound twangy and boxy (not at all like my real Martin) and the Gibson is really boomy. I was hooked up through my PA that I use for these duo gigs and I just can't seem to make it happen on the acoustic side. Can anyone offer any suggestions for a newb to this particular platform/guitar? I haven't yet tried to hook up to the software for deeper editing. Before I do, just wanted to know if it's worth it as it will be a pain to get the computer out to where the PA is. Thanks..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
