Great Sound and good quality

Evil Horst, 13.01.2018
This guitar fulfilled all my expectations. It looks very cool and the sound quality of the Variax Presets is surprisingly excellent. I love the Strat, Les Paul, Sitar, and the acoustic guitar presets, although the 12 string guitars sound a bit artificial if one of the lower strings is used for soloing.
The magnetic pickup is decent (good for metal).
The fretboard feels good. Baritone format makes it a bit harder to reach all frets, but I prefer the Baritone over my 7 string. I love the (down-) tuning possibilities.
The software to edit the presets works fine. I have not really measured battery life, yet, but at least there is a display to see how much battery power is left.
Overall, it is great fun, sounds really nice, and is really practical on stage and during rehearsal.

SHURIKEN

Manylu, 17.02.2018
Personally, I only use this guitar with the helix rack in a small home studio. But that does not mean that you have to hide with the Shuriken on stage. The piece is an absolute eye-catcher, its subtle shuriken print on the headstock, the black-matt finish, the unusual belly shape and the slender, long neck make the guitar something special.

Since I mainly play while sitting, I like the ergonomic design very much. Even with a strap, she is not top-heavy despite her long neck. I was surprised by the low weight of about three kilograms. Despite low string position and drop tuning, nothing bobs and swells. For my requirement, the shuriken is tailor-made. If you like experimenting and being open-minded, the Combi, SHURIKEN with the helix from Line 6, is definitely the right purchase decision.

I could rave about it for hours now. Various videos circulate on YouTube for anyone interested. The versatile possibilities offered by this guitar can not be summed up in three sentences. So far, I can not find anything negative, except for a glittery little thing that struck me right after unpacking. It is not particularly secure on every guitar stand. But that is the smallest problem, because who owns the Shuriken, she takes anyway to bed. * Laughs *
