What do you get when you combine legendary Line 6 modeling technology with proven Yamaha craftsmanship? The Line 6 Variax series, that's what. These are designed to be the guitars that can do it all, offering versatility well above and beyond what any traditional axe could muster. They do that by featuring powerful modeling hardware built right in, allowing you to dial in your choice from an enviable lineup of the world's greatest vintage electric and classic acoustic guitars - and even some of their distant exotic relatives. Having so many sounds to choose from makes these instruments so much fun to play that you might find yourself getting addicted when you take one for a spin!
There are two tiers in the Variax series, the first of which exclusively contains the Line 6 Variax Standard. This is the Yamaha-built model, and comes loaded with a diverse range of instrument models as well as built-in selection for alternate tunings without having to physically adjust the strings. Its alder body is topped with custom-designed alnico V single-coil pickups for a natural sound that's rich and punchy, making a great foundation for the modeling features - and it supports integration with Workbench HD software to turn the versatility up even higher.
The second level in the Variax guitar family is home to the James Tyler Variax series. These instruments take everything that's great about the Variax Standard and turn it up to 11, with the ability to recombine different pickup and guitar tones to create new, unique sounds. They're also designed to work with POD HD X-series multi-effects, DT amps and StageSource speakers, so you'll have an impressive array of tools at your disposal. The goal is to let you effectively design your own dream guitar, and it's safe to say they've achieved that.
So which Line 6 Variax guitar is the best match for your style, tastes and budget: the accessible yet powerful Variax Standard, or the amped-up features and next-level craftsmanship of the James Tyler Variax models? Either way, you'll be getting a guitar that can safely be called one of the most versatile ever built. And as if it weren't enough to have so much control over your guitar's tone, just imagine what you could do with one of these connected to a Line 6 amp for modeling at both ends! The sky's the limit with a setup like that.
