Variax isn't just a guitar -- it's a revolution.

Variax 700
Stage
For years, guitarists have struggled with the fear of losing their most prized guitars on the road. You could probably count on one hand the amount of players who actually drag their one-of-a-kind vintage Strats, Teles and Les Pauls* to every gig. It's even worse for acoustic players. Even if you decided to pull out your favorite old acoustic, getting a properly miked acoustic guitar sound at stage volume can be an absolute nightmare. What if you could take one guitar and not only have all your electric needs covered, but have a pristinely miked acoustic sound at the touch of a 5-way toggle switch? Sound too good to be true?Studio
Talk to any working studio guitarist and they'll tell you that traveling with a guitar trunk the size of a small car is the norm. When the red light is on, and you're expected to come up with "the right part," the last thing you want is an uninspiring guitar sound. Even if you have the right guitar in your road case, it's still going to take you few minutes to change, re-tune and get back into the vibe of the track. With Variax you'll be able to audition 25 different guitars all at the turn of a knob. Now that's inspiration at the speed of creativity. Of course, for the rest of us who just want to demo an acoustic-heavy song at home before the dog and kids start making the "sounds of war," Variax will become indispensable. You'll be able to record a dobro, sitar or 12-string all without having to worry about mics or the bleed from the TV in the next room. Variax will help you be as creative as humanly possible with the 20 minutes you have after work and before you have to drive the kids to football practice and ballet lessons.Collection
There's something magical about playing a 50-year-old guitar. Even better is a guitar that's actually been "played" every day of that half-century. Those instruments have a sound to them that only comes from the passing of time, hundreds of sessions, thousands of gigs. The guitars that are modeled in Variax aren't just showroom pieces. They have been played to perfection. These guitars have dings, scratches, and, most importantly, unbelievable tone. With one knob and a 5-way switch, Variax will take you through this historic collection of guitars.

Best value for sure!!!

Comments about Line 6 Variax 700 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I want to play a Les Paul, Tele, Strat and the list goes on... Definitely can't afford them all so the on alternative was to get this piece of genius... Looks awesome in red, feels really good, simple to play and of course, well depicted sounds... A little bit on the heavy side though and as said before, the 12 stringers could sound better... The gig bag is heavily padded so no worries there... All in all, a great investment though you got to remember, nothing beats the real thing...

Best Swiss-Army Guitar Ever

By 

from San Antonio, Texas USA

Comments about Line 6 Variax 700 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I've owned this guitar for 2 months. I play it EVERY day. I've played my Strat twice since. It's every thing and more than I thought.The sounds are as close to the originals without paying the $$$$'s the originals would cost. The acoustic sounds through a P.A. or clean amp are great. The sitar is the cherry on the cake. The 12-string sounds could use a little help.The only changes I've made were to replace the tuners with Planet Wave Trim-Lock tuners and the Gig-bag with a Fender Tweed case.Test drive one and you'll agree.

Comments about Line 6 Variax 700 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

I just love it. In the beginning I disliked the concept of this guitar. It seemed to me like a computer and not like a guitar, but I was wrong. Line 6 Variax is a good guitar, and pretty cheap, you get millions of guitars after all.
