Line 6 Variax 700 Bass Customized!
The Variax 700 and 705 bass are really misunderstood. And now they are no longer manufactured. I have purchased 5 700s
and one 705 which I am keeping for myself. I was going to build all new bodies for the 700s but then I decided to strip off the old paint and filler and give it a new look.
I rather like it. I have read reviews that the 700 was muddy sounding and many did not like the patches. IIf you pick the patch to match your music, amd the room, I think it sounds great. I like using my Pod X3 again which in itself is a wonderful tool. It has many bass patches consisting of a number of amp models and cabineyt models. My favorites are the SUB DUB and Advisory Bass. Both add depth to the bass. I like setting up 2 channels. One with one of the above mentioned and one with a more defined tone.
It's the best to me. I also have a Warwick Thumb Neck thru 4 string and I enjoy them both equally.
Anyway, Not much else to say about this. For more info go to My support pages follow this link

The second reason I did this is I am interested in refinishing these. I will be glad to take youre bass in trade provided it is in good shape. Then it will cost around 400.00 and your bass. Remember there are 2 items I re finished. Body and neck!. Leveled the frets and other items. Black walnut plug. Catalized Nitro finish. and more! email me with questions serious buyers.
Note: there are before and after pictures in here and I hope they are obvious. If not ask.

NOTE: This does not come with power supply. When I purchased many of these the powr supply was not included and I am out. They can be purchased at line 6 or on ebay. I am also out of battery holders but the wire to hook that up is installed. Sorry. I can order them but socan you and it will cost you less to do it yourself.
Thanks for understanding.
As many guitars as I have owned none have ever gone back to the factory.
I would be amazed if anything ever goes wrong with this guitar short of
the player thinking he (she) is Peter Townsend of the Who and smashes it.

There is no factory warantee for this instrument. I do stand behind my work and for one year agre to repair any issused cause by the manufacture of this guitar.
I stand behind my work and should there be any issue I will fix that and the only cost to you is shipping to me. I pay to ship back to you.
Marks Custom guitars is a small mom and pop business. There are a lot of "guitar makers" out there so my attitude is not volume but rather quality. I build each guitar as if I were going to keep it myself.
I look at each guitar as if it were mine to keep. This way you know that if you are purchasing a guitar from me, it's not something I threw together but each guitar is thought about and planned from the selecting of woods to the color . To pick up selection and switching. Each one of my guitars is a one of a kind.
