I was very interested in the new range of modelling gear (guitars, amps and pedals) from Line 6, ending up with rather a lot of it in the collection.
The Variax 700 was used regularly live,, so much easier than changing guitars every few songs.
With 12 string sounds, large acoustic sounds, nylon string sounds, it could handle nearly all that was thrown at it. Great idea that just kept developing. I had a direct line to their HQ!
