    There have been a couple of other players to successfully do this too.
    Thanks Butch. I thought of Jeff, but for some reason my mind didnīt draw the connection

    thats actually pretty sweet looking (the teleax)

    if it had some dumby p'ups in there i'd say it would be perfect looking and probably a great sounding guitar

You can do things like change the cap values, put pickups on top of each other, or even on the neck itself, angle it any way you want (within reason). Once it's released, you will be nothing short of amazed!
    I'm right there with you!

    I know a few folks have done this. Also, Warmoth offers bodies where you can drop the Variax electronics in. They're routed for magnetic pickups and you can presumably switch between the two if not mix and match.

    Yep, it looked as if it was pretty well done.

    That's a growing need over at the Line 6 Forum. More and more people are wanting modern models such as pickups. The "WorkBench" might take care of this...

    Wow and that variax looks 10 times better than hey way the normal "stock" one does,(In other words it looks pretty good as its not very asthetically pleasing stock IMO)

    Actually I think that would be a good idea.

    The majority of the Line 6 models seem to be catered towards vintage stuff, if you could put more modern sounding passive pups in there you could cover yet more bases still.

    That said its probably been modified post-factory

    Sounds like someone modded a Variax?? Line 6 doesn't have anything like that in production or on the design block. I'd like to hear more about this...

    BTW, did it look kind of like this but with a different pickup config?

    Was it like this from the factory or had it been modified?
