[Musikmesse] Line 6 Variax James Tyler

Line 6, Inc. announced the next generation of Variax modeling guitars: Variax Designed by James Tyler.

This new line of guitars is designed to ''deliver the feel of the finest boutique instruments and the optimal tonal performance of Line 6 guitar modeling technology,'' the company says.

Variax guitars are designed to reproduce the sounds of a collection of 25 vintage electric and acoustic instruments, and a dozen custom tunings. The modeled instruments include solid-body, semi-hollow guitars and hollow-body electrics with a variety of pickup configurations, six- and twelve-string acoustics, and other guitar-related instruments including a resonator, banjo, and an electric sitar.

This new line of guitars will be available in three styles, said to reflect the designs of James Tyler in each curve, component and control.

Line 6 will be chronicling in real-time the design and development of the new guitars. The public is invited to participate firsthand in the evolution of these groundbreaking instruments at

Each Variax Designed by James Tyler will ship Summer, 2010.
