    I loved this review subscribed to future editions on you tube and I am patiently waiting for the whole of the next demo to download so I can watch a re watch it in its entirety.
    The guitar sounds amazingly resonant unplugged.
    I am very interested in the alternative tunings with the acoustic models or at low volumes and how that feels and sounds as you play is it a bit disorienting?.
    I am very impressed with all I have read and heard so far about this guitar so well done Line 6.

    @Roger – thnx for the kind words and subscribing. I will definitely address the alt tunings and the acoustic models as they are definitely a big part of why I’m so interested in this thing! Stay tuned!

    WIll do Jack, I have been putting myself through a crash course on DSP and been looking at everything out there in the Modeling World I am still very impressed, but I am being blown away by the advances made in Hex pickup technology generally. I feel like Rip Van Winkle and I have missed out on something really big happening. WOuld be great to hear you pushing the guitar through the HD500 and then into a valve amp and then Solid State to see what your impressions are of playing the models through tubes and how the feel is.
    Best Wishes,
    Roger
