so is the fender vg really worth the price? I mean i think it would be really nice because i can't play a 12 stringer very well yet? But is it a quality stratocaster, but is still able to funtion as a tele? Somebody tell me if it is any good plz. Ty

well, the VG strat is good but if you want the modelling, you'd get much more for your money if you got a Line 6 Variax 700. The only added benefit of the VG strat is that it also has conventional pickups, though from what i've heard the passive electronics in it are sub-standard. The Variax modelling is also a lot more flexible.

if this is like the one where it shifts tunings and sounds with the knob, i think that it really loses the character of a guitar. It's like playing a computer in my opinion :/. But hey, to each his own. I think it IS useful. Maybe a good studio guitar? I would get a regular strat, or a tele. If it's for you, though, go for it.

+1 and with the money you save minimum get a decent EQ. The Variax loves a good EQ. It also likes a PA I got a cheap Phonics for the acoustic stuff and I A/B switch it through an XTL and a Valve Jr for the electric models (something about the tubes in the Vj really add warmth to the electronics). Very impressive for songs that require acoustic and electric leads.

What really made me decide on the Variax was the difference in the 12 string models between it and the VG. Variax does the acoustic stuff alot better then the VG.
