    I don't think ANYONE, outside of demos at music gear shows, has seen one.
    I know they are "selling" them online at some places, but I don;t believe, from Line6's website that they really exist yet.

    I'm tempted to get one (as I posted in another thread about them) IF the upright simulation is as good as the Roland V-bass.
    Would be a lot less hassle to cart around and set up (plus the ability to run it wireless is a MAJOR plus).
    Otherwise, I'm not a big modeling fan in general... I'd rather have one great bass guitar than 12 mediocre imitations.

    The Variax acoustic, for example, I find a total disappointment.
    ONE good acoustic in its price range would be a much better investment.
