    The Line 6 Variax 700 is a modeling electric guitar. It does not have traditional single coil or humbucker pick-ups near the bridge or neck of the guitar, rather it has piezo pick-ups built into the bridge of the guitar. The signals from the piezo pick-up are sent to a DSP chip to transform the signal into the sound of a bunch of different modeled guitars. This computer chip needs power to work, so you have to install batteries or send power to the guitar from the instrument cable.

    The Line 6 Variax 700 is a modeling electric guitar. It does not have traditional single coil or humbucker pick-ups near the bridge or neck of the guitar, rather it has piezo pick-ups built into the bridge of the guitar. The signals from the piezo pick-up are sent to a DSP chip to transform the signal into the sound of a bunch of different modeled guitars. This computer chip needs power to work, so you have to install batteries or send power to the guitar from the instrument cable. A standard instrument cable can be used if you use batteries, and the guitar basically functions like a normal electric guitar. A special TRS instrument cable is necessary if you want to power the guitar from the included power supply over a ¼” cable. It is also possible to use a special variax cable with a POD XT, X3, and HD. Not only does this cable allow you to power the guitar without batteries, it also allows you to program the effects pedal to automatically switch between guitar models for each ‘preset.’ Finally, the variax cable allows you to send a digital signal from the guitar rather than an analog signal. To illustrate this utility, consider a recording situation where you want to directly record this guitar through a POD onto a computer. With a ¼” cable, the guitar with convert the analog signal from the piezo pick-up into a digital signal for processing. Then it would have to convert the digital signal back to analog for the ¼” cable going to the POD. The POD converts the analog signal to digital for processing, then converts the digital signal to analog to be sent to an audio interface. The audio interface converts the analog signal to digital to record on the computer. With the Variax Cable, the guitar converts the analog signal from the piezo pick-up to digital. By using the Variax Cable, there is no need to have analog and digital conversion between the guitar and POD. You could even use a SPDIF cable from the POD to the audio interface to never convert to analog throughout the entire recording chain. This would give you the purest signal path for recording. Even analog to digital conversion causes the quality of the signal to be slightly diminished.
    I know there will be some people that don’t like digital, and don’t like modeling. From my perspective, it is all about getting the best sound for the cheapest cost. I would agree that a $3000 Les Paul sounds much than the Les Paul model on the Variax. However, I can’t afford the expensive guitar anyway. Therefore, I have to choose between a $700 Variax and a $700 Epiphone. I own both of these guitars, and I can say that the LP model on the Variax sounds better than the Epiphone of the same price. To me, this is the value of digital modeling. Not to mention you also get 25 other guitar sounds included. I was skeptical before I tried one out. But now I would never record without it. I just need to save up for the James Tyler Series.

    Modeling guitar.
    Mute, unlike last Variax (with James Tyler).

    The violin is the best range, personally it's perfect for me, that's exactly what I like: nice handle, and access to acute rather good (22 boxes). Basically, I would say between a guitar metal / rock (for the fineness of the handle and the ease of play), and a jazz guitar (for the nice touch and the positioning of the strings).

    The use of different sounds is easy, although sometimes to go from one sound to another you must manipulate two buttons ... Not always apparent in full song! Fortunately, Line 6 thought of that, creating two banks of five guitars each of which can be arranged at will (to the sounds we usually need a whole). It's clever, and convenient, although I would have preferred that these two banks is arranged next door (where it is opposed to the knob, move from one to another in the same piece is a little tricky, but 5 guitar sounds good on a bank that is already reasonable!). Add that you can create your own instrument, using boxes and microphones emulated each guitar, change the position and inclination of the microphones, the tuning, the output volume of each sound, etc. through the workbench software (sold separately seems to me it), and you have a panel of very broad opportunity.
    The vibrato is good and does not désacorde guitar (unless you went there as a nag every 30 seconds!). Against it is true that mobile position, it is not fixed on the bridge, what's annoying. I have not yet tried the fixed position (you must re-adjust the easel, so I would wait to change the strings)

    A switch is provided which not only allows you to power your electric guitar (otherwise there is the possibility of batteries, it is sometimes more convenient, though tedious) Special thanks to Jack, but also and especially power amplifier change along the way. Let me explain, the Variax Acoustic guitar emulates some (including folk, a banjo, a danectro, a dobro ...), which requires an acoustic amp if you want their sound is as "acoustic" as possible. Personally, I use my amp for acoustic jazz and some clean sounds, it brings warmth, typed on one side, that I like.

    Emulations are they successful?
    Yes and no.
    Let me explain, because not all emulations are not really successful, the 12-string guitar or sitar Danelectro sound a little artificial when played solo or themes. However for 12-string, the game "scraped" (to accompany what) is made pretty decent level. Is that the "note-for-note" that some gene.
    After, I do not know the guitar sound of all emulated, difficult to judge all, but what is the most famous (strat, les paul standard ...) it's pretty obvious that this is aps the same quality. It is in "a sound that is reminiscent of ... (eg a Strat)" in "the sound of ... (the strat)." As for the strat precisely, the sound lacks a bit of presence and slamming. But we recognize the style of the guitar, its texture, its sustain, beep sound. This is especially the dynamics loses some quality.
    However, I also said yes, because for € 1200 new, the Variax offers more possibilities than any emulated guitars, which often are already more expensive in themselves. Moreover, even if they are not perfectly reproduced sounds are still very good, clear, typed, with a general dynamic rather correct that respects the different styles of each instrument (try playing jazz with his banjo you will see that it makes no sense, style banjo is there, and your game must adapt depending)

    The Variax is not for everyone, purists grimaceront because of imperfections and dynamic presence of certain sounds, but for those like me who seek absolute versatility, this is a great guitar.
    It can also be used to test different models of guitar, and allow, why not, SA is the ultimate guitar :)
    Moreover, it must be said that the sounds are still very good, even if they are not always (rarely) totally respectful of the original sounds. In short, do not believe we will give the impression of playing the same guitars that are emulated even if it meets their style-but the overall quality of sounds, their variety, and versatility make any well except for a guitar.
    My biggest regret is the lack of sound of a nylon string acoustic ...

A-pedals switchavec output 1 / 4 to help guide the sound of the Variax to a classic amp and XLR output to send it to a mixer or another.

    The handle is heavy though rather what is the best guitars in the factories in SERIES. Its shape is lgrement rounded body shape, dig around the bridge and the translucent color and varnish it really gives a lot of character. Sustain loses all of even a few (not a lot compared to other models) when making the bends, which is quite logical for guitars SERIES. There's no photo, it is a class above the Variax 500.

    CF. Retailer advice on post Varix 500. Overall the sounds are excellent and Fidler reproduced with a small "-" for 12 strings.

    I use this scratching for a week, but I ammen in a luthier and I kept a Variax 500 for 3 weeks before. This guitar is really great and Line 6 seems to have t-critical of them even to add what was missing Variax 700 Variax 500.
    The report quality price (1200 euros for this MODEL, but I am one of the first in France to have the words of my vendors ...) is ... incredibly bnfique.

    The handle is a good japanese, and is very correct. What makes a big thing is that it gives an impression of long sustain and pathetic, but I think the quality of modeling there's a lot in short, the result is, it is essential
    the balance is perfect. can be a bit of weight, surpenant because, at first sight seems the tiny scratches, or it must be the weight of a stratum, or a little less
    COMMENTS: The vibrato in the state is unusable because no locking nut! The slightest action on the stem, and must retune
    On my model, new rod is screwed vibrato does not, it just sinks in the slot and is retained by a kind of inner rubber washer, this washer, badly proportioned, or default manufacturing, a game That fact that each action has on the stem means a klong-klong, making it even less usable vibrato
    The 5-way switch is trrrrres sensitive, and in a game ryhmtique funky, for example, I happened to change his unintentionally unfortunately with another sound more powerful .... I have a nosebleed my other colleagues musicos ...... I'm kidding .. , But worth it!
    I think there is reversal of the order of 5-way switch on the record, unless this is a mistake on my part, I count 1 2 3 4 5, starting from the neck ......

    The sounds are great
    COMMENTS: For my part, I have a hard time understanding why you respect the gap in levels between single and double coil. On stage, it is difficult to go from a Start, a Les Paul, not to tweak the knobs or the loss of time innerente. Its a bit the same sin as the PODs under the pretext that some vintage amps did not have control medium or reverb, and well respected line 6 has a handicap ... if we try to project a typical situation, one can assume that a "hardcore", with a vintage amp of this type would be sufficiently integrated, not to support the medium knob of the pod, because it does not exist on the original .... What interest to buy a pod, both to keep his amp, and at worst, he would have said has put the knob in neutral
    So there is an intention to innovate, from line 6, but at the same time a marketing defect, leaving users "road" and open to new techniques, a tenfold range of sounds ..
    Esperos the "UP DATES" provided will consider our opinions

    I use it for ten gala, and I have to run on the same sounds: Start, Chimes, jazz, because the difference of levels, limit me enormously "live"
    I have a distrust of the holding of the agreement, I put on the account of vibrato and I hope the solution
    the price is honest RAPORT quality is also what prompted my purchase, but would be if these problems were rsolus. By using "studio" was a little more time, it is the "total"
    I do it again the same choice, but after the improvements afore-mentioned, with a great wish: a nylon string guitar that I miss sorely
    COMMENT: We really feel that line 6 had not anticipated the impact of the skyscraper, the ddiant only has a clientele of "amateurs"
    Last Comment: I heard versions of s crazy about the use of two out of the guitar (with a hidden cache cahoutchouc) transmissions of digital data on a computer, up-dating, control of an extension of new modeling
    If anyone has any suggestions thank you joly.rene3 @ wanadoo.fr

    So there's nothing the say. I do not think the majority of modlisations be usable, and yet .... it's a rgal in virtually any position!
    The Telecasters are sublime, do not even speak of the stratum, sublime. Sounds Gibsons too, but was curious as habitu play LP Studio, there is no sensation. Otherwise, the dobro, and acoustic (12 string the same, whatever may be said), the Ricken etc ... everything is perfect.

    I use it for one month, and I'm not.
    The tuning is my one big regret, but may be is it possible to customize it to improve a little everything? In this case, it would be almost perfect guitar.
    Level look, I find sublime, with one small default: Line6 logo a little too big and too ugly especially one can (not a "guitar") on the head.

    I find trs simple use of the slecteur modlisation is a breeze to use, once the main head has rolled modlisations well (my girl!) .

    Being able to schedule Obviously the order is very practical.

    The vibrato does not ask me to dsacordage problem, we must say that I use with modration!

    My style is blues rock, but frankly I type a little while (hard, jazz, Varita.

    I play a Fender amp also modlisation cyber deluxe (see my review on the CATEGORY)

    Frankly ct trs sound is satisfactory overall, sounds tl - start are excellent and I know what I mean because I have these guitars, the rest is very well too.

    The acoustic sounds are really gniaux condition to go through a good sound !!!!! sr
    Worst is probably the banjo that I find somewhat practitioner.

    I use it for a month.

    This is the guitar in idalie deuxime guitar in the studio because it is the foot because of the lack of microphones there is no radiation is no problem of noise when you play in front of a computer screen, a speaker or amp.

    Ct careful doing your market price as it varies from 1285 1590 Euros, so be careful. For my part I ordered from "guitars", book in 3 days, against the varnish is cracked around the handle, they need me to change the end of July?.
    Thank you "to the guitar" for their seriousness, because I have actually changed my guitar in time prvu, Bravo for service.

    The report quality is OK, for the budget you dive on the 500 version because it sounds the same ct and you can find around 750 Euros

    I look forward to the release of the Workbench software that will CRER his own guitars and load them into the guitar .....................

    The handle is quite pais. Personally, I prfre finest. The finish does not seem so great that a at the edge of the frets paigns to me during the test. The body of the guitar is not enjoyable for the right arm, but got a question: Fender or Gibson style. Access in acute is good.
    It takes some practice to hear an acoustic guitar playing on an electric (same for 12-string dobro and other ...). The tuning tends not to be trusted trs. If I had this instrument, I would change the illico mcaniques. I put 6 because I did not feel the most comfortable on this guitar.

    All the sounds are INTERESTED. I used at a concert instead of my acoustic guitar. The acoustic sounds are better connected to a table and not on an amp. The sounds of electric guitars are trs good but I can not say that dcemment like a 100% Submitted on guitars. I used mainly for acoustic sounds. The advantage is that there is no feedback and only one guitar replaces the acoustic and electric. Contrary to other opinions, I find the sound of banjo fun live, has immediately gives a sound close to the original when it is embedded with other instruments. I put 8 because even if the sounds do not resemble the originals, they are using trs INTERESTED

    I possde a PRS and I can not compare these two guitars. For cons, the price of the instrument and what it brings, the ratio quality price is trs INTERESTED. I have used that and not live in the studio and I do not know what the best use of this guitar (live or studio). This tight deadlines that the instrument has made me great service by making me save space. In addition, we gain time to change Vitantis instrument during the concert.

    The dsacordage is easy. Frankly I think Line 6 should be released the same with Floyd or at least mcaniques blocking.

    The choice of sounds is plthorique and the quality is dfend. Sr Although I would not say that sounds worth modliss those of the original but you have a beautiful instrument trs incredibly versatile. (The future will be even more amazing since there will be ending for MODLIST software can transform your Squier Gibson in three of the 60).

    What I liked is that it is three or four quick trs sounds really usable.

    It's a must-buy if you have the means. Please especially the versatile professionals who must Baluchi put all styles in one evening. in terms of personality or the studio sound, I came back. My Yamaha AES 620 sounds much better I got.

    Otherwise small problems into the tuning once you use the vibrato ... can be a luthier could be remedied but that does not stop me from playing.

    I use it only live on one console via the POD. on the other hand Live a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe as it works well (but then, without POD because I can fix for a sound that does not spit too much treble).

    Who already have a Gibson Les Paul, I use it mainly when there is need
    to move from his acoustic electric sound in a song. This is perfect, fast, stunning.

    Otherwise, the Fender sounds sound pretty good .. what a pleasure to be able to quickly try a particular type of scraper on a particular type of component or recovery ... more headlock ... in addition it is advancing rapidly growing guitar!

    With the POD XT Live, you can change at will the pre-config settings for Workbench is a free download on line.com ... not need to spend € 99 ... but having already spent more than € 1,500 in the whole guitar + POD ... they may well do that.

    I use it for 6 months, 2 concerts, 15 repeats ... no serious problems. It is clear that to capitalize fully, it must be allergic to computers, to accept using a computer to adjust your guitar it's weird ... but not more than spending 30 minnutes to complete this questionnaire!

    POD XT Live, is strongly recommended with ... to control completely the guitar with one touch.

    I look forward guitar pack, like the amp model pack of PODs.

    Only downside: a friend bought the same in occas ... he had a strange hissing problem from 30 minutes of use ... back to the seller, he does not want to hear about it ... with this type of technology, it is clear that it is better not to crash because it can not act alone ...

    The handle is good, but could be a little thinner. However, it is much better than the Variax 500. Access is one of 22 boxes. The weight is concéquent (mahogany), but it shows the sound (sustain, attack). The form is then a stratum happening everywhere.
    I put 7 because they would not forget in a 10 guitar luthier or PRS (the price is not the same)!

    All styles of music can be addressed. I use it for a year on an AER amp or direct console. Jazz boxes are good (I find, after setting the sound of my Ibanez PM20).

    All styles of music can be addressed. I use it for a year on an AER amp or direct console. Jazz boxes are good (I find, after setting the sound of my Ibanez PM20). You still have to keep in mind that it is digital and it lacks a little something or other in the attack and the final rendering that differentiates a guitar "normal" (and still doing a test with an A / B box). But, given the opportunity, it's great.
    I use it through a PODxt Live (Special Variax cable). I do not use vibrato (or little), no problem when I use it. I set the neck and vibrato. on the other hand, it is true that the selector is a bit close to the microphone, so I do as someone else here, I change my guitar through the pod.
    I put 7 as a kind guitar gibson, PRS, Fender Custom Shop would surely 10. The equivalent Variax, deserves a little less.
    The acoustic sounds are worth processed with an equalizer.
    Live in position, rendering going very well and is really stunning.

    Some small imperfections:
    * The handle could have been a bit thinner.
    * The selector could have been better placed.

    Assets:
    * Dozens of realistic grains of guitars, editable via the computer (very easy): you can put any body with any microphones, editable its knobs, etc..
    * Liaison with the PODXT live very well done: Set very consistent as to go from jazz (Birel) Scott Henderson via SRV etc. ..
    Management * (via software) tunings (we do what we want to + - 12 1 / 2 tones for each string).
    Conclusion: A great guitar.

    The handle is it fun? Relatively. I use a number of guitars and this one is happening everywhere.
    Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy? For 22 boxes, so good. the little beads do not interfere.
    Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)? Nice balance.

    No you do not get a good sound if it is obtuse and nothing will replace the good old Paul ... with 3 marshall body ..

    Yes, we get a good sound if you have a proper amp and forget we are playing on a guitar electronics, rather than electrical.

    They are suitable to your style of music? Yes .. just because I have no fixed style, but many. However, for metal, I remain faithful to my rasps, as required from one song to another vary little.
    With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play? ToneLab multi-effects (lamp) transistors and amplifiers for electric and sound system with an insert in Quadraverb for acoustic.
    What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold ",....)? A little while ... The advantage of this is scratched.
    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? No preference, no detestage ... each sound has its interest, depending on the music and his ears.

    How long have you use it? Is brand new ... since I connected for the first time three days ago.
    What is so special that you like most and least? Most: versatility. the least ... vibrato (which I stretched tight), but an opportunity for a small price, I can not complain. I am not at all user vibrato ... (Well, only with the left hand).
    Have you tried many other models before buying it? Modeling has not. <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" /> purchased by mail blind ...
    How would you rate the quality / price ratio? A € 675 excellent for its services. Just two details: the jack of origin is a substitute for it the m. .. m'enfin, a stereo, are more expensive ... and above all, do not test an acoustic guitar amp ........................ ............................................
    With experience, you do again this choice? ... For the moment, yes ... this guitar is fun ... scalable (strongly workbench) and allows for a relatively lower cost, to do everything (except Alexander's Goya, or variations of the Floyd Van Halen)

    Therefore, an instrument for 20aine - € 1500 ... it's still the price of a scratch on it imitates ... <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" />

    I use it for my home studio. I see no better way to play in DIFFERENT styles.
    What saves space: a guitar, which reproduces the sound of two dozen others.
    It allows a range of sounds impressive given that I use over a Line 6 Pod 2.0 V.
    All types of sounds are now possible.

    I use it for a little over a year.
    This can be a little disturbing is the fact of having to connect a switch XPS A / B which sends the signal to a guitar sound or acoustic guitar amplifier when using these mod Mon the.
    The price is a bit lev for Variax 700 but other models like the Variax 500, Chres least, has the same sound as the 700 but not the same wood.
    I would do the same choice as a home studio, the guitar is idalie.

    Good build quality for this guitar. Logo a little more "guitar" on the head, it would be nice anyway.

    Channel pleasant, good access to treble, good balance. By weight against substantial.
    Please note the vibrato is out of tune quickly when it is used. May be the only true failure.
    Also pulling the strings "factory" is a bit much for my taste and does not allow bends very supported.
    No pickups: it's weird at first, then you get used to. Moreover, for those who wonder, the micro is in fact used a piezoelectric bridge located in the vibrato block.

    That's where she excels. Modeling of several missed the guitar: Fender Telecaster (60 and 68) and Stratocaster (59), Gibson Les Paul (Standard Goldtop, custom, junior, special), ES-335 and firebird, Rickenbaker 360-12, Martin J- 200 ...
    The pro are seduced as a whole and say that the blind test is often difficult. I'm not a pro and have never played the original, but it is enough for me and the variety of sounds is to go with the sound characteristics of each model (as far as I know).
    Of course you lose the pass characteristics of each instrument when the gaming experience (shape of the handle, body, bridge, ...) but what versatility! And you win a few new possibilities (such as vibrato on Gibson) is pretty fun.
    By modeling against the Coral sitar, Dobro, National tricone are very disappointing: in fact how to model the characteristics of the instruments so special?? I would rather find some other more conventional models instead: Fender Jaguar, Gibson SG and Flying V, Ibanez Iceman, a super-strat?
    One last point: fans of his heavy, go your way. Nothing for the metal (EMG, Seymour Duncan, Bill Lawrence XL500 and others are absent).

    And then we discover the Workbench: virtual workshop of luthier that allows small as we want to associate the different body microphones (type, angle, output level, positions ... even impossible), and above all fully customizable tuning of 2 octaves ! Endless possibilities to experiment! Versatile I tell you!

    28 different models on a single guitar, including several essential, with a quality emulation and some high-flying new opportunities. How not to be seduced. Of course you lose the pleasure of owning each instrument with its own characteristics, but that has all these models??
    In short the versatility and quality are there. An instrument adopted by many professionals as handy (a guitar instead of several, with excellent sound reproduction, it is still a luxury). Line 6 is still a success we sound with POD and Vetta.
    on the other hand, friends of the heavy metal, you will be disappointed: nothing to play on that side (except through the workbench and creating his own guitar lumberjack).
    As for others, they soon find that 28 guitars is not enough and that it still lacks some essential we would trade well against some models failed to model (too ambitious, too).

    Note: expect further EUR 100 for the necessary line 6 Workbench! (See opinion). This is also a shame (and crass commercial) to propose an option and not systematic, as it transcends the instrument.
