JTV69S..EXTREMELY VERSATILE GUITAR
I bought an Olympic White JTV69S a couple of months ago and the quality is as good as any guitar I have owned. I have had Les Paul Customs, a G&L Skyhawk, a Music Man Sabre II, and a number of other guitars. I have always been partial to a Strat sound, but I don’t care for the 9 ½” radius fingerboard. The JTV69S has the Strat sound with a 12” radius fingerboard which I find to be very comfortable.
I played electric guitar in a band for 21 years, but for the last 13 years I have been playing solo as a guitarist/vocalist with an acoustic-electric guitar. Recently I decided to get another electric guitar so I could do some of the songs I used to do and be able to get the various tones that were necessary. I was not looking forward to carrying an extra guitar along to have the variety of sounds.
With all the guitar models in the JTV69S I can use one guitar and get the out-of-phase sounds, various other guitar sounds, and still do the acoustic songs. I use a Fender Mustang 3V amplifier with a 4 button footswitch. I use the ’65 Twin amp model and use one setting for the basic guitar sounds, another for the acoustic sounds, and a third one with chorus.
This is an extremely well-made and versatile guitar and I would highly recommend it.
