Line 6 have launched a new Variax guitar model
Variax 600 features a comfort-contoured body, single-piece maple neck and fingerboard with rolled edges for a vintage feel, six-on-a-side headstock, custom tremolo bridge, 22 medium profile frets, 25" scale length, and a 10" fingerboard radius. Variax 600 utilises the same technology and tone from the award-winning Variax family and puts over 25 historic guitar sounds into a professional grade instrument with a classic look and feel.
Within Variax 600 is Line 6's patented guitar modelling technology, which can accurately reproduce the sounds of a variety of well-known vintage electric and acoustic guitars, in addition to other guitar-related instruments, such as a resonator, banjo, and electric sitar. Modelled variations include solid-body, semi-hollow guitars, and hollow-body electrics with single-coil and humbucking pickups, as well as several six and twelve string acoustics.
The all-new design of Variax 600 was crafted for the professional guitarist who wants incredible flexibility in a primary instrument that works just like a traditional guitar. In addition to the standard volume and tone controls, there is a model selector knob and a 5-way selector switch, which changes the guitar models and selects the pickup position. The characteristic tone and volume control responses of each electric model are also accurately replicated, creating instant familiarity for guitarists.
Variax 600 has a standard output that easily connects to any guitar amp or pedal board setup. In addition, Variax 600 can be digitally connected to Line 6's Vetta II amp or POD xt Live. As itâ€™s now possible to create patches that incorporate Variax guitar models with the amp, cab and effects models provided by Vetta II or POD xt Live so guitarists can have access to virtually any guitar/amp/cab/effect combination with just the press of a footswitch.
Variax 600 is also compatible with Variax Workbench, the worldâ€™s first virtual guitar custom shop for Mac or PC. It is available in 2-tone sunburst, antique white, blue, and black finishes and comes complete with custom-fitted gig bag, TRS cable, and XPS A/B footswitch/power supply box.
