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-69. First and foremost, the JTV-69 is an amazing guitar. Built to the specifications of the world-renowned Californian master luthier James Tyler, the JTV-69 is a guitar that is ready to rock. A trio of single-coil pickups give you great tone, but the magic lies in the Variax electronics. The JTV-69 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-69 James Tyler Variax can truly do it all!
Line 6 JTV-69 James Tyler Variax Modeling Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Custom-designed guitar plays and feels great
The Line 6 JTV-69 sports a beautiful custom alder body with three single-coil pickups and a tremolo. A bolt-on maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard give you a comfortable feel and plenty of tone. Unlike the Variax models of the past, the JTV-69 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-69 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-69 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-69 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-69 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-69 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-69 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 6 JTV-69 James Tyler Variax Modeling Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
The James Tyler-designed Line 6 JTV-69 lets you take all your favorite tones and tuning onstage in one beautiful solidbody guitar!

I love the resonator and tricone models! I am playing weekly in an acoustic group with my variax! The guitar itself is also excellent without the models. close [-]
