    I had an original Variax that went bad electronically and found this one used a few months ago very cheap and I was going to sell it but decided to make a project out of it and my girlfriend wanted to do it so we picked out some colors. I think it turned out pretty cool. It was a quick Duplicolor job. Not perfect but not bad for a fast job with spray cans in freezing temperatures.

    That's an amazing job from a spray can, and a great improvement ...

    I have a Variax 500 and it plays great with a GR-55 through a GK-3.

    Ah yes you are correct.

    I have a black 500 like that but the electronics went bad. Too bad too. They are fun guitars still and the build quality of the 500 is better than the 600 to me even though I've read people complain about the 500 I am not sure why based on my example.

    What can you do to improve the electronics? I have a 300 that i love, but it cuts out occaisonally.
