Variax 900, Bought On E Bay.
RogerGLewis posted a topic in Variax Guitars / Bass / Workbenchhttp://www.johnsguitars.co.uk/guitar_details.asp?guitarID=58 Â´Â´Rare - even Line 6 don't list it on their site. Saw a preview in Guitar mag and hassled Line 6 for one. Meant for artists only - lets me out I guess - but Simon at Line 6 came through for me and I got it. Same sounds as the 700, but way better construction and feelÂ´ Rusty Cooper2 years agoin reply to PaisleyPatchouli ''Nope thats the Variax 900. Same electronics as the 700. Only 24 were made and they are magnificent instruments, so well made. Line 6 felt that the market wasn't ready for such an expensive model.Â´ Line 6 Variax 900 Acoustic Super, UBER! RARE Artist only! Made in Japan! http://rvrb.io/variax-f83 ''I got the guitar from someone in LA who was in a cover band and used it. There is a fable behind the guitar, which I never thought to be true but the pieces almost add up. It was said to be one of James Taylor's guitars made for him. BUT again this is not documented nor am I claiming this to be true!!! It only comes word of mouth from the previous owners.'' There is between a 1 in 50 and one in 25 chance of this being the Variax 900 previously owned and played by James Taylor, whether it is or not the story inspired me to learn the Classic Fire and Rain from 1970, Great Song and a great guitar. This guitar is truly awesome I had been looking for a 700 for a while and couldn't believe it when this cropped up on E Bay, its a peach just superb!
