Arrived a day early (was expecting it today), and I am VERY impressed. Guitar is pretty close to mint despite being 15 years old, and the build quality is very deserving of the Fujigen name...I can see why these were $1500 new when they came out. Grabbed it for $499 with the case, power supply, Planet Waves TRS cable, manual, and all the goodies. I didn't realize just how much tonal variation there is here...in addition to the 10 "models" and the 2 custom presets the 5 way switch works in accordance with each as well, so there are over 50 possible tones here just in the guitar itself. I'm particularly impressed with the acoustic models when the guitar is used with my Fishman Loudbox (which is great because they're a big reason I grabbed this), but I have yet to really demo the rest of the models on my main rig which I'll probably be doing tonight. Full list of models is here: https://line6.com/legacy/variax700/ I'll get some better pics up when I have daylight, but here's a few...the ash top is really beautiful and the mahogany body has some really nice grain as well. Mother of pearl inlays are perfectly done, fretwork is top notch, and it plays great. I have 45 days to decide if it's going to be a keeper, which is perfect because I'll be off a whole bunch of days (pretty much the entire 2nd half of December) so plenty of time to really give it a workout. First impressions are pretty great though, I would definitely say this exceeded my expectations. I'll get some better pics up when I have daylight, but here's a few...the ash top is really stunning and the mahogany body has some really nice grain as well. Mother of pearl inlays are perfectly done, fretwork is top notch, and it plays great. It was pretty dirty when I got it (why someone buys a $1500 guitar and can't be bothered to condition the fretboard every once in a while is beyond me) but in about 10 minutes I got it lookin' good as new.
