t’s been over 80 years since the invention of the traditional electric guitar, and guitarists are still dealing with the same performance limitations. Changing tunings is slow and time consuming, and the range of tones is limited. To get a variety of sounds or alternate tunings for gigs and studio sessions, guitarists need multiple guitars—which is inconvenient and expensive. Stages are small. Trunks are smaller. Less needs to do more.
Imagine if you could switch your guitar from its natural electric guitar tone to perfectly modeled versions of the world’s most coveted vintage electrics, classic acoustics and exotic instruments, all with the simple twist of a knob. Or switch up your tunings on the fly, even mid-song. Imagine the trunk space saved. Imagine the room recovered on stage. Imagine fluidly covering acoustic, electric and even a banjo break in the same song—without changing instruments. It’s all possible with Line 6 Variax. These modern instruments shatter the limitations of traditional guitars, and will spark your creativity in exciting new ways.
