If you're talking about that one, I think it's because it's sound is completely electric and can only be run through a Line 6 Amplifier, as in it's sounds are already built into guitar.

I'm not 100% on that though.



There is no such thing as a guitar that can only be run through one company's amp as far as i know...

I assume you're talking about the variax? It's a MIDI guitar. There are no magnetic pickups, and it can be used to emulate the sound of many different instruments. Youtube it if you really want to find out how it sounds, and don't be so lazy next time.

Its a modelling guitar. It has individual piezo pickups in the saddles, and they go to this:

That processes the signal to give you all the different models etc.

Someone told me it was optical pick-ups or some ****?
I've always been interested in the idea of having different pick-ups for each string.
I hear this can do that aswell simulate different tunings by way of indivual pitch shifters (am I using the right term here?).
But it looks like a bloody toy.

Yes. With individual pickups, you can have control of each string's sound.

I own the Variax 700. It's my favorite guitar. Emulates 25 different guitars and with the right equipment does it very well. The build quality is outstanding. The acoustic models through a PA and a good EQ are very real and the electric models with a POD and tube amp or power engine/atomic results in any tone or genre you want to play. Versatility in spades. It may seem pricey, but i'd have to spend between $6 & $7000 in guitars to do everything this can do.
