The 600. Just a better wood and finish and maybe better battery. The pickup mechanism said is the exact same thing with the lower end 300 model.
Of course the acoustic modeling is amazing on this guitar, but the for money I pay extra I could just get a good acoustic instead.
The upper model 700 is beautiful with very fine build. Too bad (again)with the price tag I would just go for a good Gibson.

A set of a any variax guitar and a POD amp modeler is a very good set, though.

pod XTLive or X3 Live would be the best options..

also the people who went "ewww", should stop being bandwagon noobs.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

how would a variax compare to a similarly priced epiphone? what i rly want this for is that im looking for a guitar that can do a lot of everything (i play anything from country to death metal at any given moment) so would this be good for that? or should i jsut spent 800$ on getting a nice fender or epiphone?

If you really want to cover lots of styles with the minimum gear and money, and with the best results, yeah, Variax + POD is the way to go. The 600 is the exact same thing as the 700, just with another styling (I prefer the 700's PRS-like look, but the 600 is pretty nice too), so yep, it's worth the money. And then, get also a POD (unless you can get a Vetta II amp, then you can be done for life!) and you won't need to buy anything else in a long long time.

I say it for experience. My old teacher has the older Variax 500 and a POD XT and the array of sounds you can get is incredibly wide.

I just don't like the look of Variax 300 and 600.
If Line6 release a Les Paul version I will surely fall for it.

I've never gotten my hands on the 600, but everyone says the models are the same. Having said that. If it sounds like my 700 then it will be hard to get a better value in that price range. I can match the tones of a friend of mine MIM strat (tex mex pickups) almost exactly. So you got that tone right away. It would really come down to the build quality of the 600. If it's decent, having 25 different guitars in 1 goes a long way with practicing any kind of music you want.
