    If you're local to the Austin area I just listed one on CL.

    Just for those out there who might have interest in it. Is it a MKI, MKII, XL, or XL+?
    Even for a MKI that is a great price.

    Are you giving up modelling?

    Absolutely not, just going a different direction.

    Helix LT for kicks and Positive Grid plugins on my Macbook. Bias software modeling is incredible.

    I like you :)

    I'm really wanting a helix for all the routing options, it's a Swiss Army knife of tone!

    Helix is a great piece of kit.

    But, it doesn't have more routing options than the Axe FX. It does have a nice interface on the floor model.

    Got $1,300 cash for the Axe-Fx. The Helix is a great device. More versatile than I expected it to be. I have a JTV-69 James Tyler Variax that works very well with it.

    I'd always dismissed the JTV, but now that I have the helix, I kinda want one... maybe the strat-like one since I have humbuckers covered many times over

    curious, what does the AXEFX do for routing that the helix doesn't? not doubting you, just ignorant of it... I haven't found anything the helix couldn't do, including switch channels on 'real' amps.... which is something I would have never dreamed of it doing... so I'm just wondering what other options I'm failing to imagine.

    Notice, I didn't say the Axe had more routing, I said the Helix doesn't have more. This "I haven't found anything the helix couldn't do" applies to the Axe Fx. If you can think it, it can do it.
