The Line 6 Variax Shuriken Matte Black is a design collaboration between Line 6, Yamaha Guitar Development, and guitarist Steve “Stevic” MacKay of Twelve Foot Ninja. Simply put, the Line 6 Shuriken is capable of things that no other guitar or Variax can do. Stevic's band often switch wildly between genres. If you ever wondered how the band’s guitarists manage to change from a single coil “funk” tone in standard tuning to a super-heavy humbucker in Drop A tuning right on the downbeat leading from the verse to the chorus, look no further than the Shuriken Variax guitar! Pop in to our Glasgow shop and demo this ground breaking instrument for yourself. If buying online we ship fast across the UK and Europe. Every guitar is thoroughly inspected, setup before dispatch and includes a deluxe gig bag.

Line 6 Variax Shuriken Matte Black

The Line 6 Shuriken unlike other Variax models, features a 27" scale length. This longer scale increases the string tension which in turn provides better tracking for the Variax magic to work. It means the Shuriken handles lower tunings better than ever before so you can go far beyond the range of any standard 6, 7 or even 8 string guitar without it sounding glitchy. Aside from all the digital trickery, the Shuriken is a great ultra playable electric guitar in its own right. The sleek Alder body is finished in Matte Black and is both lightweight and well balanced. The slim neck has 24 medium jumbo frets. The fixed bridge is custom designed which both helps resonance of the guitar and the Variax processing. A single medium-output humbucker is connected to a volume and tone control.

VARIAX HD TECHNOLOGY - Custom models and tuning presets

Like all guitars in the Variax family, the Line 6 Variax Shuriken gives guitarists instant access to a wide range of guitar models and alternate tunings via Variax HD modelling technology. Instrument models and alternate tunings can be accessed with a simple twist of a knob. Variax Shuriken also features custom guitar model and tuning presets created by Stevic MacKay. With the free Line 6 Workbench software the posibilities are nearly endless. You have the option to tune each string either an octave above or below standard pitch. You can change the individual volume of strings and even turn them off altogether!

OPTIMIZED FOR LINE 6 MULTI-EFFECTS - Take your tone even further
Variax Shuriken can be incorporated into any guitar rig, but is uniquely optimized for use with Line 6 modelers and multi-effects, including the Helix, POD HD and Firehawk families. Create special presets that allow you to change amp, effect, and guitar models, as well as guitar tunings, all on the fly with the touch of a switch.
