So I picked up a used Line6 Variax 500 from Guitar Center. It was $299 plus shipping from one of their stores in Florida (I'm in Joisy).
Interesting thing about this particular Variax... It's EXTREMELY clean, as in it barely seems used at all. But even more interesting is that it came with a maple board Warmoth Variax-headstock (now called the Warmoth-2) Wizard profile neck with some flame. He also put what appear to be Schaller locking tuners on it.
