    Very good access to acute and ergonomics.
    but for me the main c is the sound.
    at the first aproach I have found all these sounds very well except very few realistic acoustic parts and bland.
    but here after one hour quard the sounds start to become boring rather like those digital synthesizer front of the analog.
    but it is mainly through its strat has a real Strat that I understood the difference.
    day and night on a real strat can play for hours taking the total distance.
    but on this guitar once good first impression is soon going hungry.

    Well I must confess this guitar suits the style and everything for the beginner c is a good idea for you here is of a stroke with a range of several guitar.
    the problem is that c c is not you find your PERSONALITY.
    pro and amateur go your way.
    lovers variétoche and academic panel fast premach sounds standardis this guitar is for you !!!
    ok this quitar is very well it just does not possess a true Les Paul or Strat or Tele ... not to mourn;

    2 HOURS no more.
    say my buddy Ludo almost the buy before trying a real guitar devienez what he took ???.
    of powder eye this guitar really

    How long have you use it?
    2 years now.
    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Plus: the multitude of sounds available, of course.
    The least: perhaps as ... very subjective though. Otherwise, I had a sensor that was released at a time, and I took time to find another ...
    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    No, no, a friend wanted to get rid of because he was using more, I jumped at the chance. With that said, having had only acoustic guitars before, I do not really know to what kind of sound I turn to an electric.

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    So, pretty good ^ ^
    With experience, you do again this choice?
    Yes, even without having had the opportunity at the time, I think that given my use, it's perfect.
    Then, as drummer initially, it will never stage.

    Modeling isn't evil

    Line 6 Variax 300Published on 12/13/12 at 11:05
    The Variax 300 is an electric guitar from Line 6 that models the sound of other electric guitars by using digital signal processing. This guitar does not have traditional magnetic pickups (single-coil or humbucker). Rather it uses a piezo pick-up in the bridge to transduce the string vibrations to an electric signal. This guitar can sound like a Telecaster, Strat, Les Paul, Firebird, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, 335, and a bunch of acoustic guitars.
    The first question everyone asks about digital modeling is: does it sound like the real thing? Honestly, I was very skeptical about this guitar before I tried it out. My opinion is that it sounds very good, and very similar to the guitars it is …

    The first question everyone asks about digital modeling is: does it sound like the real thing? Honestly, I was very skeptical about this guitar before I tried it out. My opinion is that it sounds very good, and very similar to the guitars it is modeling. I don't think it is a fair comparison to criticize the entry level Variax because it doesn't sound perfectly like a $4000 Les Paul. I think the better comparison is does the Variax model of the top-of-the-line Strat sound better than a Squier Strat is the same price range as the Variax 300. In this comparison, the sound of the Variax is much better than a Squier in the same price range. Based on sound quality - I think the Variax 300 is miles ahead of anything else in its price range.
    The biggest problem with the Variax 300, is the physical guitar seems to be made very cheap. The body, neck, and hardware of the guitar are really cheap. Line 6 isn't manufacturing this guitar anymore. If you are trying to buy it, then you are going to have to buy it used. Unless you find one that is in really good condition, I wouldn't count it lasting for years and years to come.
    I purchased this guitar 'new' when Line 6 was ending production and trying to dump the last remaining units. I try my best to take really good care of my gear so that it will last a long time. Unfortunately, after owning the guitar for several years, it was stolen out of my church. I searched for a long time for a replacement. All the 'used' versions that I found had something wrong. Eventually, I found a used Variax 700 in great condition. This guitar has the same exact modeled sounds, and also has better hardware.
    Line 6 has now released the James Tyler Variax. Someday, I am sure I will buy one of these guitars to upgrade my Variax 700. If you are in the price range for a low- or mid-priced guitar, I think finding a used Variax 600/700 is a great idea. This guitar will sound better than buying a Epiphone or Squier. If you can afford the James Tyler Variax, it is probably your best bet. Well...unless you can afford 20 different $5000 guitars - then you can forget about modeling.

    Line 6 Variax 300Published on 12/17/03 at 15:00
    I came to be an owner of the Variax through necessity more than want. I've been lucky enough to be performing as a 'one man band' 5 out of 7 nights a week for the past 7 years. After years of using Ovation acoustic/electric guitars (with satisfaction),I learned about the ideal innovations of the Variax guitar from a fellow professional, who gave a high recommendation. I have special requirements because of the nature of my act, & the Variax sounded like just the thing I needed. I went to Guitar Center because they have been giving me the best deals for over 17 years.

    I came to be an owner of the Variax through necessity more than want. I've been lucky enough to be performing as a 'one man band' 5 out of 7 nights a week for the past 7 years. After years of using Ovation acoustic/electric guitars (with satisfaction),I learned about the ideal innovations of the Variax guitar from a fellow professional, who gave a high recommendation. I have special requirements because of the nature of my act, & the Variax sounded like just the thing I needed. I went to Guitar Center because they have been giving me the best deals for over 17 years.

    When you entertain nightly visitors along with a regular following in a downtown atmosphere, the instruments you use better have no equal. I need the best equipment that delivers from the first to the last note, including a state of the art guitar with streamline make-up; and the Variax fits this bill perfectly.
    I play guitar, play harmonica, sing, & play percussion rhythm with my feet via four pedals which are hooked up to a digital drum module. I have different sounding percussion, but the mainstay of my set-up are 2 snares (one for each foot), a kick, & a cymbal I crash or choke. My act is as visual as it is audible, & the only drawback is that I have no time to mash any stomp boxes or momentary foot switches for different sounds. Well, the Variax opened more doors and dimensions for me by having the very sounds I need built right into the guitar! With a flick of my finger I can go from a sitar sound like I need for 'Norwegian Wood' to a 12 string Martin for in between the verses. Everything I play is live, yet many people ask me where my 'back up' cd's are! The streamline shape of the Variax enables me to keep the guitar close while I'm stomping away on my pedals, & the sampled sounds within are nothing short of lush musical purity. It even has a built in port, so that you can hook it up and record on your computer! And here's the REAL kicker; all for the price of a regular guitar! Hats off to the innovative creators of this mind blowing guitar which makes me sound better than I am! My only hope is that the same people that came up with this extraordinary instrument come up with a way to house orchestral sounds as well, so that an end to those expensive synthesized guitars is realised! For those of us who don't have a lot of money and/or have families to feed, yet would love to have the many vintage sounds of some of the most coveted guitars in the world; THIS is the guitar for you!!

    The only drawback about the Variax is the neck. It seems a bit more in depth & width than my electric, which makes it a bit more difficult to play than my electric, but not difficult enough to make me want to put another neck on, which you can do easily enough as it is a simple bolt-on style neck. It does handle much better than a neck on an acoustic. Also, I would gladly trade some of the vintage guitar sounds (as I don't need as many as it has to offer) for some string sounds, piano sounds, & the like. The only sample that isn't up to snuff in my opinion is the banjo sound.

    Construction is solid. The shape is perfect for me because it's difficult enough playing beats & fills throughout the night without stretching over a wide guitar & balancing yourself on a drummer's throne! As far as the quality goes, the body's A-1, but the neck's a bit iffy, being a bit too thick & wide for a 'buttery' feel.

    I see this guitar as a hopeful trend of musical products to come. It's great that this instrument can be used as effectively for recording as it can for live applications. In my 28 years of performing, I've never owned a piece of equipment that's made my act even better, at a price that is equally as mind blowing. Just think; a plethera of vintage guitars for the price of one! Awesome.

    This guitar is made in Indonesia but the violin is very good. The handle is screwed 22 frets and the bridge is equipped with LR Baggs piezo sensors 6 for the modeling. The strings through the body. There are 28 different guitars ranging from jazz guitar to Les Paul through acoustic guitars (6 and 12 strings).

    The handle is quite nice to play and access to the latest boxes is facilitated by the chamfer and the heel that tapers. The guitar is rather light and the different bevels (for the forearm and back of the guitar) makes it comfortable.

    The handle is quite nice to play and access to the latest boxes is facilitated by the chamfer and the heel that tapers. The guitar is rather light and the different bevels (for the forearm and back of the guitar) makes it comfortable.

    In theory, this guitar is supposed to fit almost any style. In practice, one can be about anything except playing genres such as metal. The simulations are quite realistic and we recognize the Telecaster, the Stratocaster (particularly positions 2 and 4), the Les Paul. One can easily get the sounds to Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin etc ... Other simulations are perfectly usable and very musical but I can not really say if they approach the original (the Firebird, the Rickenbacker ...) because it is less used guitars. Jazz guitars are nice, but it's not really my kind of music. The sound is realistic but I think the Variax Acoustic would do better job! Finally the bank "Reso" with the resonator guitar, banjo, sitar (superb) is also very musical. Some sounds are useless (as the position of the tele without tone) but the set is stunning. Do not expect to have exactly the same as the original guitar but the sounds are very realistic and musical. This guitar is really great for the home studio (because it does not generate background noise).

    This guitar is really versatile and the models are realistic. The value for money is really excellent because the sounds are very clean, diverse and violin making is far from the sidelines. I do not know if the Variax Workbench is really useful as this guitar can play almost anything. With experience, I would do without this choice eSite

    The guitar in it even is equilibrated with a big ass who Ramna slightly diagonal position idalie. (No innuendo)
    the sound is good, but I was dveloppe in the next section (Keep that stuff for later)

    : O
    it's all there is to say
    this guitar is completely ...........
    there's no words to say (as piphone: I can not tell it, the goal I Can Play it for you)
    Imagine having the hands open the possibility to spend a bit of a les paul strato, add a martin and a Guild 12-string, and you away from your Ralite.
    The sounds are excellent in my opinion.

    I tried it in store, and I think that has to be my electric guitar Premire
    Versatility??
    Bah Voui it has the versatility, and sell more than most guitars can be found on the market.
    I tried mostly MODELS like roxanne before playing on the one and I think that there is no picture in sounds that can be obtained on the Variax (may be a hair worse than the roxanne, but you really have to go under the microscope to notice)
    The report price is really exellent quality, too, saw the guitar

    I use it now for a month. Home. Not been able to play with my friends. But I have already convinced a traditionalist.
    It's a beautiful guitar, cheap, and unless you need a vibrato, no need to invest in higher models (I tried too).
    risk compared with a traditional e ... failure! To see for aging. But if it fails, at this price, I bought one.

    I play with this guitar on a msa f50, I RULES gneralement the amp to a fender or gibson sound ... now there are monstrous sounds like 12cordes Rickenbacker (2et4 chime in) or acoustic 12-string (2et4 on acoustic) ... I have a soft spot for those quite the bluesy atmosphere. Otherwise there are RésoSanté is a pretty gadjet, little more than the guitar. I put 10 for the price quality ratio
    ps I catch a little bug on 12-string modlisations: if we make a harmonic very low volume, the effect of shit because the string ghost supposed to sound the octave from Lollipop and is no longer prcise at all.

    I've had two months, I love its versatility and ease be played.
    I think this is a flawless guitar for the price ... it rating records are clean I think this is one of the best guitar in this price range, which I n ' shut not really hot for this kind of scrapes before trying it.

    The handle is very nice (for those who love handles Fender type). The key also. The guitar is very light is not very tiring. The absence of microphones is a plus for the work of the right hand.
    For access to acute, well it's like a Start.
    I put knobs on a big plus: the volume buttons and tone are really doing a great job. It gets good grades saturation and tone. For me it's a good thing compared to other guitars of the same budget that I could test (Squier top).
    => 7

    For sonrités and my decision, the senpiternelle caveat: I do not know the guitars are simulated, so I will only assess the sound quality of the guitar without cling to the resemblance to the magnificent original guitars. That says it!
    As for testing, in Marshall or Peavey amplification, repeated use and house concert. I play a little bit of everything from folk to thrash.
    Here is a model by model description sounds:
    T-Model:
    Excellent sound with clear highs slammin. Big versatility of this model. Position 4 is really (too) silent. Otherwise it's all good. 2 The position offers good opportunities for saturation.
    Spank:
    In my opinion the sound is too muffled. A general tone a little low. Otherwise it is round, it's clean. Characteristic sound simple micro-saturated distortion. Crunchy and other low saturated very nice but its clear that this simulation is doing better.
    Lester:
    Excellent sound palette (note its not too clear to raise the level guitar, it would spoil a bit). Position 4 magnificent lead with large saturation. Very good sustain general (the best of the guitar). Sounds clear "scraped" very pleasant.
    Special:
    Position 2 and 4 for the excellent AC DC. Again the volume micro play a lot in sound quality.
    Billy R:
    True his 60's. Treble a little garish for my taste.
    Chime:
    3 positions 2 and 6 string 12 string positions. It's not my favorite sounds. The 12-string comes out still not bad, especially rhythm.
    Semi:
    Any good especially crunchy. Play with the volume of pickups is simply the Panard. Position 2 and 4 really nice.
    Jazzbox: I do not really because of the tone and sound a little nasiard.
    Acoustic: bluff high volume, even disconcerting at first. This is a big highlight of the guitar is a very good electrical and electro acoutisque. The twelve strings have found their way directly into the compositions.
    Reso: recreation, including banjo and Citara. Position 3 (Danelectro) is the best for me.

    Conclusion: Apart from a certain lack in the guitar nags and accepting large staurations, the sound palette is complete and quality. Everyone gets their money. But even for 8 when the lack of guitar over buggers.

    I use it for 2 months now and I do not think of a well with excellent value for money.
    It is not for everyone. But for people like me do not really want to put € 1,000 in a good guitar is fine. I was not party to buy it but eventually the sound palette for that price I decided (I confess I am afraid of being disappointed with a more expensive guitar, also taking into account my average).
    After the great guitarists and those who can afford I understand they like a good guitar brand with real wood and real microphones especially since we do not know how it will age. Personally for the price (385 € at the time) if it is not 5 years it will make me nothing at all ...

    But frankly for those who hesitate: go ahead Variax is a very good system.

    - A volume knob, one tone knob, a button Guitar Pick (12 banks of 5 sounds, corresponding to the original 10 different types of guitars, stratocaster, telecaster, les paul, les paul junior, gretsch, rickenbacker, ES335, acoustic guitars, resonator guitars and other banjo, sitar, etc.., plus two banks of five sounds "custom")
    two outputs: one stereo output (sound / power from the internal sound card), and an output RJ45 (network cable) that connects directly to the Line6 Vetta or POD XT Live, or the unit "workbench "line six separate opportunities to better enjoy the guitar (customization, alternate tunings).
    - Bolt

    body agate, rosewood handle the key. landmarks round plastic cream.

    correct construction for the price. highly innovative concept

    Handle very nice.
    access to acute very correct
    very nice guitar to play, and light.
    the sound is quite pleasant "unplugged", but once plugged in the guitar is stirring.

    The sound of this guitar is made to suit all types of music, since you can customize at will the sound characteristics of the beautiful, especially through the workbench (accessible with the unit hardware sold separately, or through the POD XT Live , or the Vetta)

    I play with a pod xt is connected to the sound system or a powered speaker (B. Cord Audio), or sometimes a marshall JCM 2000 "live".

    the sound is simply stunning, especially for Les Paul, Telecaster and Stratocaster. I owned a les paul studio, and the comparison is held ... Of course, I get a good marshall all lamps with a les paul, it will sound better than the Variax. but the difference is not so egregious, in particular recording that is quite the way! note: the guitar makes its best services in clean or crunch or even slight distortion. with large distos is that it sounds not (on the contrary, its very good), but we no longer know the difference between a les paul and a Start or a rickenbacker ... everything sounds like beyond a certain level of distortion ... which is a shame, but not necessarily of the guitar ...

    it's still modeling, but what can be done with the Variax and can not physically do with NOT ANY OTHER guitar:

    - Move from his acoustic guitar / electric guitar electroacoustic within a song (not true with some other godin guitars with a piezo hidden in the bridge ... but not at all in the same price! !)

    - Change of tuning within the same song, simply by changing the switch position: it is the only guitar that does so seamlessly. I often use different tunings (dropped D, all strings lowered a semitone so hendrix or slash, or 4 low tones as Black Sabbath, or an octave lower commme low) and is bluffing. no other guitar that I know did this.

    can also customize the sounds for its sounds really preferred.

    - I use it for over a year.
    - I prefer the following two options: move from his acoustic electric sound, change the tuning without having to touch the mechanical
    - I tried the guitar shop, I did not want to buy another, given the possibilities of the beast.
    - Amazing value for money.
    - I would do the selection again.

    However, with more money, I would buy, of course, the original models, especially if the roadies had to maintain them, change the strings, (re) and give me the go on stage ....

    ONE downside: what to do in case of failure?? I have no patent electronics ... argh.
