I let this one go to make room…

2007 Line 6 Variax Acoustic 700 modeling guitar is one very cool instrument, or should I say instruments, as it can model many different acoustic guitars. Line 6 no longer makes this which is a shame as it is so versatile.

The Line 6 Variax 700 was the world’s first acoustic modeling guitar
Contains models for 16 richly detailed acoustic-instrument sounds, phenomenal feedback-resistance, unique and intuitive tone-shaping options, and instant access to altered tunings. These magical electronics are housed in a nice playable thin mahogany body with cedar top. Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and pearl snowflake position markers. Output can be sent direct to a PA, recording device, or any standard acoustic amplifier. Like owning a studio full of fine acoustics. Great for live performance and for the studio.
