I have two and have used at gigs countless times
But would it really be a stones tribute band if you’re playing a variax? I guess rehearsal would be cool to have 1. But for a show I’d definitely want to nod to mick Taylor and keef’s guitars.I play in a Stones tribute band and because of all the alt tunings they use I had to bring 5 guitars to our last rehearsal. Open G electric and acoustic, regular tuning electric and acoustic, and open E tuning... If I could just bring one guitar that does it all it would be worth it for me.
The same reason that the modeling on a Line 6 Spider isn't great. The Variax starts at $900. You really can't expect much from it considering it's a guitar plus all of that modeling stuff. You're not getting Helix-level modeling. And the tech is 10-years old.I've always wondered why the amp modeling is so good (helix etc.) but the guitar modeling (Variax) is not as good. Somewhere in between appears to be the speaker modeling (Powercab)
