    i've had this variax for a year but never got to play with it until today

    because it didn't work when it arrived

    i finally found a local pro who could fix it without saying

    "drop it off and we'll take a look at it in a couple of weeks"

    and then bend me over and charge me a silly fee and mercenary mark up

    for simply installing a new peizo tail piece actual cost $175.. even i can do that

    Miles got this AND my rewired tele back to me in 2 weeks for under $200

    i was hoping i could start just brining ONE guitar to gigs and rehearsals

    sadly, the synthetic voices just aren't that good except for the:

    generic 12 string resonator, banjo, and les paul sounds...

    but she was free except for the repair fee 20210416_175518.jpg
