New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Variax Standard is an invaluable tool for guitarists worldwide who want great tone, unparalleled versatility for live performances and recording or who just want to push the creative boundaries of what can be done with a guitar

Line 6, Inc. today announced the worldwide availability of the Variax Limited Edition Onyx guitar. It features a translucent-black finish over a flamed-maple veneer top, with matching headstock overlay and a premium ebony fretboard. Each guitar also includes a Limited Edition insignia and numbered neck plate. The release follows the success of the Variax Limited Edition Emerald and Amethyst guitars, and is available in a limited run of 300 guitars.

"The Variax Standard is an invaluable tool for guitarists worldwide who want great tone, unparalleled versatility for live performances and recording or who just want to push the creative boundaries of what can be done with a guitar," said Marcus Ryle, President, Line 6. "The new Variax Limited Edition Onyx offers guitarists a unique opportunity to own a limited-run instrument that not only looks great, but also offers a wide range of tones and alternate tunings via Variax HD technology."

The Variax Limited Edition Onyx guitar features a lightweight alder body, one-piece maple neck with Macassar ebony fingerboard, and three Yamaha Alnico V single-coil pickups that serve up full-bodied tone. While it offers the classic looks, rock-solid build, and superb playability expected from a high-quality guitar, the real magic is in the onboard Variax HD modeling technology.

Variax HD modeling gives guitarists instant access to the sounds of highly sought-after classic electric guitars—as well as 6- and 12-string acoustics, resonator, banjo, sitar, and other instruments one would normally not expect to hear coming from an "electric" guitar. Players can also access alternate tunings such as Open G, DADGAD, and Drop D—or their own custom tunings—with the turn of a knob.

With the Variax Workbench HD application, guitarists can create unique instruments by mixing and matching a wide range of body styles and pickup models, and inventive tunings to push guitar far beyond what's possible in the physical realm.

Variax Limited Edition Onyx ($1,399.99 MSRP) is now available worldwide. Learn more at
