SHURIKEN VARIAX GUITARS
Unlock the Unorthodox.
GUITARS LIKE NO OTHERS
Modern instruments for modern guitarists.
Shuriken® Variax® guitars resulted from a collaboration between Shuriken Guitars, Line 6®, and Yamaha® Guitar Development. They are modern, high-quality instruments featuring unique body shapes with contoured edges, Indian ebony fretboards, custom mid-gain humbucking pickups, and all of the sonic versatility provided by Variax HD technology. Shuriken Variax guitars come with a Shuriken premium padded gig bag.
Choice of 27" and 25.5" scale lengths.
Shuriken Variax guitars are available in two scale lengths. The Shuriken Variax SR270 features a longer 27” scale length that will feel familiar to many players using lower tunings, while the Shuriken Variax SR250 features a traditional 25.5” scale length.
This is a truly modern instrument that’s ideal for visionary players who want to slay listeners with a vast repertoire of tones and tunings that are unexpected coming from a relatively streamlined and straightforward-albeit-futuristic-looking guitar.
Chris Gill, Guitar World GUITAR WORLD GOLD AWARD!
Our first impression of the Shuriken Variax SR270—and that of nearly every artist, producer, and DJ who's visited our NYC studios since we've had one—has been one word: ‘Whoa.’

No matter what style of music you play, if you exploit the full capabilities of Variax Shuriken, the sky really is the limit.
Joe Charupakorn, Premier Guitar
The Line 6 Shuriken Variax is a perfect longer-scale, baritone instrument for metal guitarists who want tons of customizable guitar tones and the ability to change tunings with the flip of a knob. It’s in a class by itself.
Paul Riario, Guitar World
“[Shuriken Variax] has a universe of potential inside of it, waiting to be unleashed by your creativity.
Trey Xavier, Gear Gods
VARIAX HD TECHNOLOGY
Custom models and tuning presets.
Variax HD technology makes it possible to instantly access the sounds of dozens of legendary electric guitars, acoustic guitars, and other fretted instruments with the twist of a knob—and switching between alternate tunings is just as easy. You can also design custom instruments and tunings, then load them into your guitar as presets using the free Workbench HD application.
OPTIMIZED FOR LINE 6 MODELERS MULTI-EFFECTS
Venture even further beyond the orthodox.
Although Shuriken Variax guitars can easily be incorporated into any guitar rig, pairing them with a Line 6 Helix®, POD® HD, or Firehawk® modeler unlocks their full potential. Create custom presets that change tunings as well as amp, effect, and guitar model settings—all with the touch of a footswitch.
