27” BARITONE SCALE LENGTH
Featuring a 27” baritone scale length, Variax Shuriken delivers optimized playability for guitarists who perform with heavier strings and lower tunings. The extended scale length provides punchier, more-precise tones and works in conjunction with Variax alternative tunings to let guitarists play in any tuning they wish, no matter the tension and feel of the strings. This allows players to go far beyond the range of any standard 6, 7 or even 8 string guitar.
VARIAX HD TECHNOLOGY
Like all guitars in the Variax family, Variax Shuriken gives guitarists instant access to a wide range of guitar models and alternate tunings via Variax HD modeling technology. Instrument models and alternate tunings can be accessed with a simple twist of a knob. Variax Shuriken also features custom guitar model and tuning presets created by Stevic MacKay.
