MESSE06: More Variax Acoustics From Line 6

Line 6 have announced the debut of Variax Acoustic 300 Steel and Nylon string modelling guitars. These latest additions to the Variax family of guitars deliver a crucial set of tones inspired by the award-wining Variax Acoustic 700 yet come in at a more affordable price. Line 6 say that both the Steel and Nylon 300 versions offer exceptional feedback-resistance on stage, and unique and intuitive tone shaping options for the recording guitarist.
Rich Lasner, director of instrument product lines, Line 6 told us, “We’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 300’s enable guitarists to achieve the best acoustic sounds possible without requiring expensive instruments, microphones or a sound-proofed studio space.�
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.
