Agoura Hills, CA—March 29, 2006 — Line 6, Inc., manufacturers of the world's first digital modeling amplifiers and guitars, announced an addition to the Variax® 300 line of modeling electric guitars. Originally released in black and red, Variax Electric 300 will now be available in a vintage style, 3-tone sunburst color. The instrument features a comfort-contoured body, maple neck with Indian rosewood fingerboard, six-on-a-side headstock, 22 medium profile frets, 25 ½" scale length, and a 12" fingerboard radius. Variax Electric 300 takes the same technology and sound from the award-winning Variax family and puts over 25 historic guitar sounds into an instrument that any musician from beginner to professional can afford.

“Customer requests for a vintage sunburst on the popular Variax Electric 300 guitar prompted us to develop the 3-color sunburst finish to meet the demand," said Rich Lasner, director of instrument product lines, Line 6. Within Variax Electric 300 is Line 6's patented guitar modeling technology, which can accurately reproduce the sounds of a variety of well-known vintage electric and acoustic guitars, in addition to other guitar-related instruments, such as a resonator, banjo, and electric sitar. Modeled variations include solid-body, semi-hollow guitars, and hollow-body electrics with single-coil and humbucking pickups, as well as, several six- and twelve-string acoustics.

Variax Electric 300 works just like a traditional guitar with instantly familiar controls for easy use. In addition to the standard volume and tone controls, there is a model selector knob and a 5-way selector switch, which changes the guitar models and selects the pickup position. Variax 300 has a standard ¼" output that easily connects to any guitar amp or pedalboard setup. In addition, Variax Electric 300 can also be digitally connected to Line 6's Vetta™ II amp or POD® xt Live. Variax Electric 300 is currently available in opaque gloss red, black, and now a 3-tone sunburst finish all at the same affordable price. Custom TRS cable and XPS mini power supply box included.
