The Variax 600 is made in Korea.
It has 22 frets.
It has a vibrato Baggs
3 knobs: one volume, one tone and a selector knob scratch
The neck is maple, screwed.
The handle is very enjoyable to play, typical stratovolcano, access to acute is easy and the ergonomics are good, the guitar is light and well balanced.
It comes with an output pedal, allowing
1 / to feed via stereo jack provided
2 / to switch an XLR output to an output jack, useful to remove the acoustic guitar sounds (very well done) on a live or acoustic amp on the sound system.
Its level, there are simulations Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster, Gibson Les Paul (Standard, Studio, Junior ...). Half boxes guitars, Jazz guitars, 12 string, acoustic, acoustic 12 strings, dobros, one (one?) Sitar and banjo.
And it sounds!
I tested live on pc on a small marshall transistors and a JCM, it sounds impeccably on three configurations.
It is impossible not to find a configuration adapted to his style!
Just a little flat on the 12-string, the effect is more of an Octaver that the true 12-string ... which is still logic.
There are no recent simulations guitar or microphone active but simulations les paul already have a big sound.
A small flat on the palm mute, crunches is obtained by putting her palm against the ropes!
it will be four months since I use it.
I love the vintage look!
I forgot to mention these individual micro-piezo wonderful that simulate more efficiently enough famous guitars possible to pass from a phone Selector Tool of tuning to another, it's great!
Combined with the workbench for editing the songs, it provides all the tunings without changing ties, without adjusting the handle!
This also allows for example to have a bass sound on both E string and LA and normal sound for the other strings, which eliminates the need of bassist
Bass sounds obtained are friendly to the wound strings, but horrible on the high strings troi
In short, it's really an interesting guitar for both the stage and in the studio, very nice to play and with delicate sonorities.
The violin is well finished and good quality the handle is pleasant, access to acute is correct.
Vibrato is sympathetic, use it wisely under penalty of dsaccordage.
Holding agreement is not what is the best I enlve a point for that.
The weight is that of a standard guitar, she leans slightly forward when standing.
The contrles are plas and effective.
It behaves like a normal guitar, glisss, bend, taping, etc ...
There is no sound delay because it is not a midi sensor, there is a mic cord.
I think that the inside of the guitar there is a multi-effects simply because we just send a rsultat with a multi-effects, but not as sharp, well simply connatre the effects and interactions, except that it is powerful and DDI.
The pedal used direct Housing Case of amps and other selections and food is very well done.
The manual is very good.
Ha! sound, I can not tell you, but if I tell you!
First, here is my configuration, BOSS multi-effects (GT PRO), amplified speakers RCF (ART 310A).
I would not do any comparison with the original models.
The clean and crunch sounds are excellent bill whatsoever in rhythmic or solo.
The lead sounds are very good solo for a rhythmic goes quite well.
In fact for heavy rhythmic sounds it feels too microphones, which has consquence to have a sound that is not full, it sounds slightly electro.
Acoustic sounds are correct on arpges and solo.
In rhythm without much attack is good, if we attack her fawn s'crase the limiter.
The sitar and other sounds, adpend how we used them and on what styles, a is no good.
Purists go your way, except perhaps for clean and crunch sounds.
Lovers of big sounds tchent (lead full rhythmic sounds), forget.
For concerts holding agreement can be a handicap lightweight.
For studio and research sound is excellent.
For me it's a great guitar.
I use it for a few months.
This is the SECOND I because the First was a series of default (see the forum).
I would do this choice.
Critical updates are mine, and also dpendent gots and colors.

For features, I refer you to the site very didactic line 6
pretty decent Korean manufacturing
the violin is clean, even if the varnish of the handle is thick enough
the frets are smallish, but well placed round Surla
there is a lack of push-button selection of models, which prevents any custom backup in banks.
the vendor is accustomed to the Variax, and it is loaded in 5 minutes before even sell me
I add that the battery access door is very easy to open (no screws!)
Finally, the gig-bag offered is really nickel and very padded
The handle has a fairly flat profile, which was a bit confused, but it is nice and fast enough
the action is set low which arranges things
guitar light enough and well trained, pleasant to take control
the sounds are very easy to select, and the two banks are customs practices for quick access
a familiar problem: a place of understanding very average (if only one uses the tremolo) that being it is mounted with a draft which does not help low
therefore provide block
the cable sfournis are nickel (neutrik a lifetime warranty!) and the robust housing
this guitar is really not complicated to use, plug and you turn a knob ...
It's not a gas plant!
The sounds are rich and varied
for most, not knowing the original, I can not tell if they are faithful
in any case it is true to the idea that I'm this or that guitar (from the disk etc ...)
the nuances of the game are well made (vibrato, harmonics ..)
CA Larsen incredible but true even with some distortion and a les paul (moi ca me astonished)
for acoustic sound, drop the idea to use your guitar amp AC does not
this will work is full of good things even if it sometimes takes to be careful to detect the difference between such and such a model ... Maybe not I hearing fine enough?
This guitar is a very good model
it is fun to play physically, which is very important
it restores the game well
there are lots of different sounds and musical
I would advise against having only AC, but no more than it's been an investment excllent
is obviously confusing and sometimes forget some a priori but honestly this is not the monster or the shame that we described here and there ...
remember that 60 years ago there were no microphones on the guitar, then refuse progress past the stage of success like the frieze passeism
there is no reason to be haughty with those who love this guitar, it would be rather large for instrument makers, who themselves have a perfect violin, to match the diversity offered
in this sense, to another budget, the PRS 513 is another way, but expect the others?
