Variax 700 Electric Guitar by Line 6
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is lucky. If he’s working on a track at his home studio and he needs a particular sound, he can just go grab another guitar, plug in, and another classic track is born. Those of us for whom money is still an issue have it a little tougher. Sure, we know that “Sweet Child O’ Mine” should only be played on a Les Paul (or a copy, like Slash used), but there’s only room for a couple of guitars in the back of the Civic, and if the song has to be played on a Strat, then so be it.
No more excuses! For the cost of a decent Stratocaster or half of a Les Paul, guitar players can have access to classic sounds from both of these instruments, as well as from banjos, sitars, resonators, and several acoustic guitars. The Variax carefully models the waveforms of classic instruments to product their sounds faithfully, and all of the sounds are just a knob twist away. Finally, guitarists can leave their vintage instruments at home and still be prepared for any musical need that may arise.
