Rich Lasner, director of instrument product lines, Line 6 told us, â€œWeâ€™ve been able to take the technology we invented for Variax Acoustic 700 and build steel string and nylon-string guitars that deliver recording quality sound at an affordable price.The Nylon and Steel Variax 300â€™s enable guitarists to achieve the best acoustic sounds possible without requiring expensive instruments, microphones or a sound-proofed studio space.â€�
Variax Acoustic 300 Steel and Nylon feature a unique and simple Body control knob. On Steel, the Body control goes from small parlor to full-bodied jumbo while Nylon can move from a bright and punchy flamenco to warm and round classical. Controls also include mic position, compression, and reverb/ambience, which can all be saved along with the model to any one of 10 user selectable locations. An easy to read display shows the preset number and becomes a built-in chromatic tuner at the touch of a button.
Both instruments feature a mahogany body with spruce top, and a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Variax Acoustic 300 guitars include a custom TRS cable, XPS Mini direct box/power supply, and are available in a natural gloss finish.
