They have a promotion right now... Buy a Variax bass and get a Bass Pod XT Live free. I've been seriously contemplating buying a Variax and I AM going to buy an XT Live very soon... How cool is this? How great the timing? I'm all set to make a trip down to my store and order in a Variax.... I double check something on the Line 6 site and see something that I swear wasn't there 48 hours ago..... Offer only available in the US. Damn you! Damn you dirty stinking apes!! Damn you all to hell!! OK, I feel better now, thanks for letting me rant.
