Steve Howe and Line 6

Legendary guitarist, and progressive rock pioneer, Steve Howe, made a Line 6 Variax 700 part of his music arsenal for the 2004 YES tour. As a fully confirmed collector of great sounds and instruments, Line 6 was honored to share the stage with such an avid tone pioneer. "Variax fills in the cracks of my guitar collection," said Howe.

Howe has spent the last 35 years recording, touring, and collecting the greatest guitars in the world. It is because of this that Line 6 is happy to announce that Steve is officially the first artist to be in a Line 6 Variax advertisement. You can see the new ad for yourself right here on our site, and in print in Guitar World magazine starting in 2005.

Being an avid guitar collector, and fan of technology and music, Mr. Howe wanted to meet the people behind the technology he was so amazed by. He did just that on September 24th 2004. Howe’s input on guitar sounds will help Line 6 continue the quest for achieving great tone. Howe just recently finished up the 2004 YES world tour and is currently recording in Geneva with his Variax 700 Electric.
