What is your overall opinion of this product? I own 3 Ibanez Jem guitars and Taylor's so I know about good guitars. This guitar by itself came set up well. It plays well be it sounds fantastic. The whammy stays in tune better than some of the Jems. Beautiful guitar, nice finish. That being said, now let me tell u about the modeling. Very impressive. Tracks perfectly, no glitches. So many variations of guitars and tones. Acoustics are very convincing. Sitar and other exotics are cool. I programmed two other tunings in, the Rain Song and She Talks to Angels and with a flick of a knob they are there! Amazing. Didn't have time to get into the software yet but I looked at it and it looks like you can do a lot with it. I play in a classic rock and blues band and this guitar fits the bill.

What is your overall opinion of this product? Very dissappointed. Expecting more. The guitar is just average to begin with. It was bought for the software, which turned out to be unstable. USB to Variax plug would not connect to computer. Computer could not recognize the guitar. Line 6 needs to improve their quality control. Navigating through the website to obtain drivers and software is a waste of time. Do like the POD500 HDX, however the Variax added nothing. Forget the "Dream Rig"....waste of money. If you can get the software to run properly the guitar has a lot of potential. Not much good unless you can connect to a computer. Likely a faulty USB interface.

What is your overall opinion of this product? First, my three star rating is based entirely on the fact that the guitar arrived as the most poorly set up instrument I've ever received (other than the acoustic I got from the Speigle Catalogue in 1966). After a string set change and two hours of tweaking (the McGuyver kind) I found myself in possession of a first rate electronic instrument. Everything just as Line 6 advertises.
