OUR STORY


We're musicians and we’re technologists, with a passion for bringing you the next generation of gear that will inspire you to create, record and perform music in new ways. We have a long history designing category-defining products that push technical boundaries, so you can focus on your music.

We introduced the world’s first digital modeling amp, the AxSys 212, in 1996. We were behind the groundbreaking POD® multi-effect that launched in 1998, revolutionizing the industry with an easy way to record guitar that had great tone. Our Variax® guitars can do more than any other instrument in history, and we’ve led the analog-to-digital transition for guitar wireless with our Relay® products.

We haven't stopped, either. In 2015 Line 6 introduced the Helix® family, our new flagship guitar processor. Helix represents a major leap forward in guitar processing, as well as a new way of thinking about guitarists and their relationship to technology.

In 2014 Line 6 became a part of the Yamaha family, creating a network of global collaboration which, in 2017, led to the creation of the first-ever Guitar Division within Yamaha. This culminated in the formation of Yamaha Guitar Group, Inc. in 2018. Yamaha Guitar Group, Inc. is a U.S.-based, wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation, Japan which brings together the intercompany teams that have been focused on serving the needs of guitarists worldwide. Yamaha Guitar Group will oversee the development and global marketing of guitar products for both Line 6 and Yamaha.

We’re proud that our history of pushing for new ideas that serve guitarists. We’re all about giving you access to the tools you need to create, perform and record in ways you never thought possible. We promise that we'll always take dramatic leaps so you can reach new heights with your music. That's our commitment to you, because in the end, we love being a part of making great music.
