This is a great guitar that sounds fantastic whether you use the Variax modelling features or not. I'm only selling as I prefer the feel of Les Paul style guitars. It's in great condition with just a few small marks here and there (shown in pictures). It's updated with the latest firmware, and comes with various bits and pieces: the original case, cables, battery (which holds its charge well) and battery charging kit. I also put chrome Schaller strap locks on. If you don't want them, I've kept the original strap buttons so you can easily put them back in (see pic). But if you want to use them, I've included a padded guitar strap with the locking mechanisms you'll need.
The £550 price includes shipping (tracked and insured). I'll take the cost of this off if you would prefer to collect from me (I'm in Swindon, Wiltshire) or meet halfway at a reasonable distance, e.g. Bristol, Reading.
Bank transfer preferred (I'll provide bank details in private message).
"This beautiful guitar, designed by master luthier James Tyler, is fitted with Variax modelling technology allowing it to emulate the sounds of other instruments thanks to Line 6's extensive modelling capabilities. This well-crafted guitar can be used as normal or with the additional Variax technology and is perfect for live performances or studio sessions. The neck shape is designed for easy playability and the neck joint provides absolute access to the upper frets. The pickups have been designed by Tyler himself with the humbucker in the bridge complementing the vintage-style single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. They're all loaded with alnico magnets and wound to Tyler's precise specifications.The custom Tremolo bridge is designed for superior tuning stability and smooth vibrato action as is the premium guitar nut. The long lasting, rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers at least 12 hours of play and LED indicators let you know how long you have left. When you're not using the guitar, simply roll down the volume and the electronics will go to sleep to save power. The pickup bypass function means you can always use the guitar without batteries too."

Before lockdown, my G30 wireless system started cutting out constantly in the rehearsal room, I’ve tried it on different channels and at home so I’m fairly certain it’s not because of interference. There is apparently a firmware update available, however you need an XD75 receiver to be able to update it which I haven’t got nor was prepared to invest in. I’ve replaced the G30 with a G70 now so this is redundant, and I thought it better to try and sell it for spares/repairs rather than just throwing it away.
Comes with original box and paperwork.
Both the receiver and transmitter power on and connect to each other and work on all channels.
Original power supply not included.
Belt clip on the transmitter fell off years ago, a common issue with these units.
Battery compartment door is loose, I held it down with elastic bands. Again, a common issue.
The aforementioned constant cutting out.
So, if anyone fancies taking a punt on a cheap G30 set and try and get it working again, this is your lucky (or unlucky) day.
Collection from Southend or I’ll post to your door, I imagine postage would be roughly £10 or less.
For sale. Line 6 Helix Native License for the full software. I no longer use my Computer so I don’t need the software any more. Purchaser must have a line 6 account or create one, and then the license will be gifted to them through their account. I have just been on my Line 6 account and checked that this is ok. I just enter your line 6 user and email then gift it to you. Currently on Line 6 it is 399 US dollars or around £300. Please note that Native is not a standalone plug in, it is to be used within a DAW. This is for mac or windows.
