WTS: Line 6 Variax 705 (sold)

Post by IamNotYou » 11 Jan 2019, 14:44

Hi guys,

Clearing out my 5 string stock.

Here's a Line 6 Variax 705 with the xps power and TRS cable include which is all you need to get it up and running. It's made in Korea, not sure if that matters.

Condition is 8 /10 because of a chip at the back. Electronics are working 95% and are currently strung with DR hi-beams 45-125. Forums say the stock strings were d'addario EXL170s, so you might want to change up the strings if you want accurate modelling. However it seems good with my DRs. The reason for electronics being 95% is because the red led is no longer working. Doesn't hurt the functionality of the bass, it's either green light or no light now. Might be a simple fix at the end of the day.

I'll post a link with the pictures tonight.

There was one that sold last year for $1,300 through reverb.

https://reverb.com/item/7356346-line-6- ... and-extras

I'm looking to move it for $1,100 or trade if you've a 4 string jazz bass with a maple fretboard.

I'm based in Sydney, postage to other states will be at the buyers cost.

Feel free to PM me if you've any questions or email me at donovan_sia@hotmail.com for a quick reply.

Thanks,
Donovan

G'day.

What does it weight?

I can't find the weight on any specs on the internet, I did note that one reviewer said it was very heavy.

I already have other Line 6 gear so I am interested but I also have a very heavy Bass that needs 2 straps.

Hi Cliff,

Just measured it off my weighing scale at 4.5kg without batteries.

Hope it helps!

Just changed the strings on them to d'addario EXL170s and they are working excellently. The modelling sounds a lot better with the stock strings.

Price dropped to (sold)
