NAMM NEWS 2017: NAMM is finally here and to kick things off Line 6 storm onto the NAMM stage with a revolutionary progression in their legendary Variax series of guitars. Constantly redefining the bond between instrument and technology, the new Variax Shuriken is the latest, most advanced Variax to date.
Featuring a brand new, assertive body shape, baritone scale length, and Variax HD technology, this is a guitar for the modern player. Finished in a gorgeous matte black with a reverse headstock, offset dot inlays, and a single Line 6 designed humbucker in the bridge, this guitar is every progressive metal players’ dream.
The Shuriken is the result of an intense design collaboration between Line 6, Yamaha Guitar Development and guitarist, Steve “Stevic” MacKay of 12 Foot Ninja. Designed for the heavier, more technical player, the Shuriken is capable of a modern tight tone, stability in lower tuning, and the market leading versatility of Line 6 Variax technology.
