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-59P. First and foremost, the JTV-59P is an amazing guitar. Built to the specifications of the world-renowned Californian master luthier James Tyler, the JTV-59P is a guitar that is ready to rock. A pair of P-90 single-coil pickups give you great tone, but the magic lies in the Variax electronics. The JTV-59P houses an amazing collection of classic guitars that you can call up in seconds. Modeled from some of the best vintage instruments in the world, the Variax has the tones you need and want. The Line 6 JTV-59P James Tyler Variax can truly do it all!
Line 6 JTV-59P James Tyler Variax Modeling Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Custom-designed guitar plays and feels great
The Line 6 JTV-59P sports a beautiful custom alder body with two P-90 single-coil pickups for killer tone. A set mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard give you a comfortable feel and plenty of tone. Unlike the Variax models of the past, the JTV-59P features a set of real custom-wound pickups. These single-coil pickups have been designed by James Tyler and built to his specifications. So, even without the Variax technology onboard, the JTV-59P is a custom-quality instrument on its own.
Tons of classic guitar tones with the twist of a knob
But there's a lot more to the James Tyler Variax JTV-59P 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-59P 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-59P 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.
Customize your axe without a soldering iron
What's even cooler about the JTV-59P 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-59P 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 [-]

Above and beyond my expectations
by from Boulder, CO USAI have been skeptical of the modeling equipment for years but this guitar is truly amazing. Perfectly setup and has the fit and finish of an even more expensive guitar. It wouldn't be a bad deal witho... read more [+]ut the technology. The models and tunings are compelling, and only have some problems during palm muting and extreme tunings (which are minor in my opinion). Excellent fit and finish. P90 pickups are spot on. I wasn't wholly convinced when I ordered but it has exceeded all expectations and I cannot recommend this guitar highly enough. close [-]

Take a Variax, Add P90's and the formuls is complete
by Robb from PittsburghIve been wanting to try one of the new Variax guitars but something was missing for me and it was the P90 sound. I guess I could have made a custom guitar sound but when I saw this coming out I quickl... read more [+]y got in line. I received the guitar last Saturday and aside from doing alittle intonation setting she plays great. Neck is just the right size, reminds me of my SG. The P90's sound clear and distinctive, no Muddiness at all. Everyone already knows how great the modeling sounds so I wont speak to that. This guitar is a great value that in my opinion should offer something for everyone and cover just about every type of sound. close [-]
