The result of a collaboration between Yamaha luthiers and the Line 6 technicians, the new Variax Standard guitar has been unveiled at NAMM 2015, with the world’s most coveted vintage electrics, classic acoustics and exotic instruments on board. You can switch between alternate tunings with the turn of a knob or create any guitar imaginable with Workbench HD virtual custom shop software.
Featuring a lightweight alder body, fast maple neck and custom single-coil pickups, the Variax Standard delivers the rock-solid build you’d expect from a high-quality guitar. The lightweight S-type body, one-piece thin-finished maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and proprietary tremolo bridge deliver total comfort and playability, while the custom-wound pickups serve up loads of rich tone. Add in our proprietary Variax HD technology, and you get a guitar that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
With the Variax family of guitars, creating your own unique sound has never been easier. Variax HD technology delivers a wide variety of classic guitar models—each with exceptional detail, feel and response. Choose from an amazing collection of vintage electrics. Or inspire your playing with rare acoustics and eclectic instruments. You can even layer your modeled sounds with the magnetic pick-ups. You can also access alternate tunings—including Open G, DADGAD, Drop D, or any other custom tuning—with the turn of a knob.
