"3 single coils sound fantastic!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was worried that the 3 single coil pickups would be cheap and sound awful. While I awaited delivery, I had already begun plans to choose fender pickups to replace them. To my surprise, the included pickups sound quite robust and full of clarity. While some may want to upgrade, I think I’ll stick with them for now as I’m more than pleased with the sound they put out.

"Line 6 Variax Standard"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is my third Line 6 Variax guitar. I started with a 300 series which was so so. I moved up to a James Tyler 69 which was a good guitar but we just didn't get along, especially the neck so we had to part ways.I have lots of Line 6 equipment with the Line 6 VDI Variax Digital Interface so for me another Variax was a given.I have always had a fondness for Yamaha guitars and since the Variax Standard is made by Yamaha I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did. This my favorite Variax so far.Pair it with a Line 6 Helix or my favorite, the Firehawk FX pedal board and you have an amazing combination. Just one click on a preset on the board and you have a new authentic modeled amp with effects and it automatically switches the Variax to whatever guitar is chosen for that particular tone. It's simplicity and authenticity at its finest.As far as build quality the Variax standard is on par with Fender's Made In Mexico Standard Series instruments. It's not as good as American Strat, at least any of older models... I haven't tried a new MIA in some years.The tuners and bridge are stable, the magnetic pickups sound fantastic and are as good as any Stock Fender single coils, the body is alder and finished nicely. I like whatever material they chose for the ebony'ish fretboard, it looks and plays great. I love the black tusq nut and string guides. My only wish is that the neck wasn't plain sawn, they coulda upgraded a bit to a quarter sawn for a few bucks more.All in all and it's a great guitar and you really can't go wrong giving it a try.
