The Shuriken® Variax® SR270 guitar resulted from a collaboration between Shuriken Guitars, Line 6®, and Yamaha® Guitar Development. It is a modern, high-quality instrument featuring a unique body shape with contoured edges, a 27" scale length, an Indian ebony fretboard, a Line 6 mid-gain humbucker, and all of the sonic versatility provided by Variax HD technology. The Shuriken Variax SR270 comes with a Shuriken premium padded gig bag.
Performing with lowered tunings typically involves playing either a guitar with more than six strings or a baritone guitar. While the Shuriken Variax SR270 guitar’s longer scale length will feel familiar to most down-tuned players, Variax technology enables them to access a variety of alternate tunings without physically changing the tuning of the guitar and while using standard-gauge strings. The Shuriken Variax SR270 also allows guitarists to venture beyond the ranges of conventional 6-, 7-, or even 8-string guitars.
Like all guitars equipped with Variax HD technology, the Shuriken Variax SR270 provides immediate access to a wide range of guitar models and alternate tunings simply by twisting a knob—and custom guitar models and alternate tunings may be saved as presets using the free Workbench HD application.
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.
