Thanks to the remarkable craftsmen at Yamaha, Variax Standard delivers the rock-solid build you'd expect from a high-quality guitar. The lightweight alder S-type body, one-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and proprietary tremolo bridge deliver total comfort and playability, while the custom-wound pickups serve up loads of sonically rich tone. Add in proprietary Variax HD technology, and you get a guitar that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Vintage Sound. And So Much More
Everyone knows that a vintage Strat® has amazing tone. But for many of us, owning one is a dream rather than reality. Variax Standard delivers a rich, bold sound based on* a priceless 50s Strat®, minus the hum and buzz that can plague older instruments. Plus you're not limited to the sound of just one instrument—you can access dozens of classic guitars and pickup types to find your ideal tone. With Variax HD technology, you get an instrument that combines legendary guitar tone with pure versatility, playability and innovation—all for a price that's within reach.
No need to spend extra time and money upgrading your guitar—Variax Standard comes with high-quality components that set it apart from other guitars in its class. A lightweight alder body delivers clear, full-bodied sound with plenty of sustain. And the lubricated Graph Tech nut provides precise tuning stability to help you stay in tune as you bend strings.
Custom-Wound Alnico Pickups
Want to take a break from guitar modelling and go old school for a bit? Variax Standard comes with three custom-wound single-coil Alnico V magnetic pickups that capture every nuance of your playing with pristine accuracy. And if you want to go even further, you can also access over a dozen classic pickup types thanks to Variax HD technology.

A very versatile guitar. Having had a Variax guitar (and bass) in the past, with all the inherent issues with on-board power supply, it's great having the option now to switch over to 3 standard passive strat-style pickups - excellent for versatility and contingency, and they sound ok...
A very versatile guitar. Having had a Variax guitar (and bass) in the past, with all the inherent issues with on-board power supply, it's great having the option now to switch over to 3 standard passive strat-style pickups - excellent for versatility and contingency, and they sound ok too.
The voices are...well...I doubt they'd fool anyone who really knows the guitar they're trying to emulate, but it certainly provides a wide tonal range.
The big selling point for me is that option to go 12 string and jumbo acoustic. These voices are convincing.
The guitar itself is very playable. Good balance, fast neck (although I'm sure I'll be treating it to a fret-dressing job quite early on to make it great) and decent furniture.
The tuning options are perhaps something I won't use too often (it's taken me 55 years to get to grips with EADGBE, anything more is just a step too far :-)
If it holds out (i.e. the Variax electronics are reliable), I can see this being the guitar that goes with me on every gig.
|Still getting used to it and trick to get sounds I want through pa. but good value guitar and very playable|
