I have done 4 shows with the Acoustic Variax now. Last night was another. I cannot express how pleased I am with this guitar. You can be full volume, right over your amp - up FULL - with the FOH going full tilt at a big festival.... with your hands over your head clapping along. On any other acoustic guitar, you'd be killing everyone with feedback. Rumble, you'd be blowing up power amps. And deafening your audience. The Line 6 Variax Acoustic? Dead quiet. It is so inspring, so inspirationsal and so damn FUN to use this thing live it is stupid. The tones, especially the Jumbo in my case, are incredible. I got a board tape and listened breifly before the singer made off with it last night; that thing sounds like a guitar in a studio with a wicked good mic on it and a wicked good compressor just touching it. I could not be happier. Well, I did a few things to it. Rubbed out the neck with Micro Mesh (I do this alot to all my guitars); added fossilized Ivory bridge pins (aesthetic upgrade only on *this* guitar); added new self-locking 18:1 Grover tuners (they are soooooooooo cool) and it is at a luthier getting a new proper Bone nut (NO plastic nuts for me please) whilst I go away on vacation next week between shows. I am using the regular capo on these gigs, the virtual capo on it works fine but it is hard to remember sometimes in the heat of a gig on the fly that I had the 2nd fret virtual capo on the Dread model and the 1st fret virtual capo on the Jumbo model, etc.... so I like the comfort and foolproof method of just putting the capo on and *knowing* I won't start the next song in the wrong key. (I started twice in the wrong key in rehearsal twice and rethought using the virtual capo live). Just a glowing rant.
