Featuring a 27" baritone scale length, the Shuriken Variax SR270 delivers optimized playability for guitarists who typically perform with lower tunings. The extended scale length provides punchier tones and works in conjunction with Variax alternative tunings to let guitarists play in any tuning they wish, without changing the tension and feel of the strings. This allows players to go far beyond the range of any standard 6, 7, or even 8 string guitar.
Variax HD Technology
Like all guitars in the Variax family, the Shuriken Variax SR270 gives
guitarists instant access to a wide range of guitar models and alternate tunings via Variax HD modeling technology. Instrument models and alternate tunings can be accessed with a simple twist of a knob. The Shuriken Variax SR270 also features custom guitar model and tuning presets created by Stevic MacKay.
Optimized for Line 6 Multi-Effects
Take your tone even further.
Although the Shuriken Variax SR270 can easily be incorporated into any guitar rig, pairing it with Line 6 Helix®, POD® HD, and Firehawk® modelers unlocks its full potential. Create custom presets that change tunings as well as amp, effect, and guitar model settings—all with the touch of a footswitch.
