Gear: Line6 JTV-69 vs Variax 500

Andreas Witez compared the magnetic pickups from the JTV with the Strat and Les Paul modelling sounds from JTV and Variax 500.

At the end of the video he plays 2 JTV acoustic guitar sounds and the same on the Variax 500.

Observations:
– JTV singlecoils sound brighter than the model sound
– JTV Strat model has some weird transient spikes so that my stompbox compressor has problems
– JTV humbucker is softer than the Les Paul model and not as ‘fat’
– acoustic sounds on JTV (V1.9) is way better than Variax 500

No EQ was used, just some limiting on the sum. The acoustic sounds are completely dry.
