Variax Guitar Collection


Amazing tone. And plenty of mojo.

In our quest for the ultimate guitar tones, we could have modeled any Fender® Stratocaster® or Gibson® Les Paul®—but that would have been too easy. To create Variax®, we tapped the coveted collection of Albert Molinaro—one of the most knowledgeable and respected vintage instrument dealers in the world. Albert kindly allowed us to audition multiple guitars from his collection that met our specifications, including a $250,000 Les Paul. Bottom line, we modeled the best of the best vintage guitars—so you get all of the unique character, tone and mojo of the finest classic instruments.
