From Our Research Team:
All the Tones and Tunings You Need Onstage!Line 6 takes their Variax line to a whole new level with the James Tyler Variax series. If you're looking for an excellent and affordable guitar you can use for an incredible range of music, then take a look at the JTV-59. First and foremost, the JTV-59 is an amazing guitar. Built to the specifications of the world-renowned Californian master luthier James Tyler, the JTV-59 sports a beautiful custom mahogany body topped with flame maple. A set mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard also add to its full and vibrant tone. Unlike the Variax models of the past, the JTV-59 features a pair of real custom-wound humbuckers. These pickups were designed by James Tyler and built to his specifications. So, even without the Variax technology onboard, the JTV-59 is a wonderful instrument on its own.
But there's a lot more to the James Tyler Variax JTV-59 than meets the eye. Inside, there's a fully updated Variax modeling system. This system lets you instantly reshape your sound and retune your guitar with only the turn of a dial or two. Just twist the tone selector dial on the JTV-59 and jump from a 6-string solidbody to a 12-string acoustic, or from a bold humbucker configuration to a snappy single-coil setup. Applying alternate tunings such as drops, open tunings, and capos is just as easy. The JTV-59 has a second selector wheel up at the neck that lets you instantly switch between 11 tunings without altering either the feel or the tension of your strings.
What's even cooler about the JTV-59 is that you're not locked into a predefined set of tunings and models. Line 6's Workbench software (a free download from Line 6's website) lets you create custom models on your computer and upload them to your JTV-59 via its built-in USB port. Define your body style, dimensions, pickup configuration, etc. — the combinations and possibilities are endless! Plus, defining your own custom tunings is as easy as pushing a couple of buttons, fretting your guitar, and plucking each string individually. Also, a new Li-Ion battery pack gives you 12 solid hours of playing time. Now, you can take the stage with a guitar shop's worth of instruments and never have to swap out your axe or its batteries!

Line six Variax
by Sammy A from PAThis guitar is awesome. Looks great, sounds incredible. Easy to lean all the basic functions. I haven't put it through the POD or used the additional software tools so can't comment on that however th... read more [+]e sounds right out of the box are excellent. The 12 string shimmers and even the twang of e sitar is wild. This is no toy. The guitar has weight, the action is low, the neck is beefy and this guitar rocks. I was a little skeptical on the alternate tunings function but it works and I'm blown away. If you want a great functional electric. This is your guitar. close [-]

This is a beautifully crafted, amazing piece of technology. It's everything that I have come to expect from Line 6. The sounds are pristine. The action, intonation, construction...all perfect. I simply LOVE this guitar. Stayed up all night playing it, tyring the sounds, replacing old tracks in Pro Tools and Logic. This is going to be one of the most useful tools in my studio. Thanks again, Line 6. You guys are the masters.
BTW - also got a JTV - 69. See review. close [-]
