I have a PAS w/ B1. I am looking to sell a Gibson Chet Atkins Classical Electric (1988 Limited Edition) and purchase a Variax 700 (not the acoustic version, the other one) and a PODXT. I want to be able to step on the unit and switch from an electric sound to an acoustic sound. I read that the best acoustic sound is achieved by bypassing the amp modeling, by turning off the amp models with the footswitch. Is this saved as part of the preset when you save it?
Also, while I've got your ears, the Taylor T5 puzzles me a little. I know it has acoustic sounds and electric sounds, but could I achieve the same results as above.
As I am really a keyboard player with average chops on guitar, I am looking to solve these problems as elegantly as possible. So, Variax or T5?
To the questions in boldface above.
much easier to get a reasonable 'acoustic' sound with the amp modelling bypassed
The state of the amp modelling (e.g. bypassed) is preserved when you save a patch.
