Since then, Yamaha has created class-leading instruments, including the SBG and Pacifica electric guitars, BB basses, APX electro acoustics, the unique Silent Guitar and the TransAcoustic guitar.


Line 6 is known for products that leverage groundbreaking digital technology. With a long history of firsts, Line 6 has a proven track record in defining new product categories for guitarists. Recently, the best-selling flagship Helix® guitar processor has received numerous accolades and awards.
