Build your own custom guitar at home on your PC or Mac! Variax Workbench gives you your own personal guitar custom shop with all the tools needed to easily create, store, and share the guitar you have been dreaming of.
With Variax Workbench, you can select from a complete list of guitar bodies, pickups and placement, tone and volume controls, and tweak until you've come up with a guitar that is truly unique. With Workbench, it's like having all the coolest pickups, controls, and bodies of the greatest guitar collection, all at your instant disposal.
This combination USB interface and software package allows you to see and hear the physical changes to your custom guitar in real time. Ever wonder what a single-coil pickup would sound like on a hollowbody tuned a whole octave down? Probably not. That's because it wasn't a reality… until now.
One of the main reasons for having different guitars isn't just the pickups and sound, but the tuning. Workbench allows you to not only make your own guitars, but you can select a custom tuning to go along with it. Now your T-model setting can be in Open G, your Spank model can be tuned a half-step down, and your Lester model can go to Drop D.
You can make as many guitars as you want using Workbench's Librarian (below). Keep track of your custom guitars, store them on your computer's hard drive, email them to friends, or just make a CD-ROM backup so you can load your guitars into any Variax you use! Workbench allows you to fill each slot on the Variax Model knob AND five-way switch with your custom guitar collection.
Using the special RJ-45 connector, you can go "inside" and create custom guitar models. Using the included custom digital Variax cable and converter box, you can now USB into any Windows or Mac OSX computer and edit the guitar entirely on screen. Now you can SEE exactly what you're playing!
