LINE 6 ANNOUNCES VARIAX ACOUSTIC 300 STEEL AND NYLON STRING MODELING GUITARS NOW SHIPPING
-- Modeling steel and nylon string guitars deliver recording-quality sound --
Agoura Hills, CA—August 29, 2006— Line 6, Inc., announced today the debut of Variax® Acoustic 300 Steel and Nylon string modeling guitars. The latest additions to the Variax family of guitars, the incredibly affordable Variax 300 Acoustics deliver a crucial set of tones inspired by the award-wining Variax Acoustic 700. Both the Steel and Nylon 300 versions offer exceptional feedback-resistance on stage, and unique and intuitive tone shaping options for the recording guitarist.
Variax Acoustic 300 Steel and Nylon feature a unique and simple Body control knob. On Steel, the Body control goes from small parlor to full-bodied jumbo while Nylon can move from a bright and punchy flamenco to warm and round classical. Controls also include mic position, compression, and reverb/ambience, which can all be saved along with the model to any one of 10 user selectable locations. An easy to read display shows the preset number and becomes a built-in chromatic tuner at the touch of a button.
Exclusive to Variax instruments is Line 6's patented guitar modeling technology that offers studio quality recording tone regardless of the playing environment. “We’ve been able to take the technology we invented for Variax Acoustic 700 and build steel string and nylon-string guitars that deliver recording quality sound at an affordable price,” said Eric Kirkland, product manager, instrument product lines, Line 6. “The Nylon and Steel Variax 300’s enable guitarists to achieve the best acoustic sounds possible without requiring expensive instruments, microphones or a sound-proofed studio space,” explained Kirkland.
Both instruments feature a mahogany body with spruce top, and a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Variax Acoustic 300 guitars include a custom TRS cable, XPS Mini direct box/power supply, and are available in a natural gloss finish.
