Variax Acoustic 700 offers you 16 models of the finest acoustic instruments on the planet with the push of a button. You can easily access jumbos, 12-strings, or even a nylon string classical to suit any style of play. Variax Acoustic 700 gives you the freedom to achieve an expertly mic'd acoustic sound without complex setups or feedback, even at concert-level volumes! Recording a great acoustic sound no longer requires a noise-free environment or a big equipment budget; just plug in and go. You also get instant access to alternate tunings for endless possibilities to fuel your inspiration.

Several years before Variax Acoustic was born, we turned our attention from the POD, amps, and effects that we had been developing to take a fresh look at the guitar itself. We wondered–could it be possible to capture a complete range of guitar tone in a single instrument? After a couple of years of research, development, and countless hours playing dozens of vintage electric and acoustic guitars, we released the original Variax, the world’s first modeling guitar. But while the Variax is perhaps the ultimate general-purpose guitar, we also wanted to specifically address the unique needs of the acoustic musician.

We decided to tackle a problem that had plagued acoustic guitarists since the advent of electrified music–how to get a great acoustic sound on-stage and in the studio. With our unique Mic Position control, you can adjust your tone the way professionals do–by changing mic position. And since our mic is a DSP algorithm, you don’t have to worry about feedback or noise leakage. Another key ingredient to both live and recorded acoustic instrument sound is compression. To further simplify the life of the Variax Acoustic owner, we decided to add a remarkably effective, yet simple to operate compressor. Many acoustic guitarists are fond of alternate tunings, but re-tuning during a performance can often become–literally–a show-stopper. To remove this obstacle, we gave the Variax Acoustic the ability to re-tune for you, at the press of a button.

And of course, to fill our instrument with the sounds of so many archetype acoustics, we had to audition truckloads of vintage guitars to find the ones with just the right sound. Just as we did with the original Variax, we refined our models while constantly referring back to the originals for accuracy. When each model reached the point of not only sounding like the original, but also being as much fun to play, it was done.

The result of our labors? Variax Acoustic 700. An entire acoustic collection in a single instrument.

With a simple twist of the MODEL SELECT knob, you'll hear a diverse range of instruments from no-frills workhorses to the upper echelons of collectibility. And a few exotic oddities that most of us don't even know how to tune, much less play. With the Variax® Acoustic, you won't get the vintage patina or the strangely erotic musty case smell, but you won't have to deal with the neck re-sets and cracked tops either. Instead, you get only the very best part: the sound.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
