    Check out my latest Trussart. We spec'd this Steelcaster out to incorporate the Line 6 Variax electronics. It has seperate outputs for the Variax and the Magnetics. I'm very pleased with the finished product! The alternate tunings are a blast, and of course the guitar itself is great! More to come later..back to playing!!

    Love the look of the guitar and the choice of pickups. I would play that as a regular guitar sans Variax.

    Awesome as always! Say, do you hear different tones from the variax in the metal body than you do in a regular wood body? :)

    It definitely sounds better in the metal body. Really digging the alternate tunings on the resonator models.
