OVERVIEW

The latest Variax technology in a finely crafted guitar.

The JTV-69 James Tyler Variax Modeling Electric Guitar offers an innovative design and boutique playing experience courtesy of master luthier James Tyler, and the world's most advanced guitar modeling technology from the people who invented it, Line 6. Plug this guitar into any amp and hear all the models, all the tunings, and both acoustic and electric tones you've ever wanted. No more dragging around multiple acoustics and electrics to gigs or recording studios. Variax gives you an endless variety of sounds from classic acoustic and electric tones all the way to sitar and banjo, all in one instrument.

The JTV-69 features a beautiful flamed maple top, alder back, and a bolt-on maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. A recessed heel makes reaching the upper frets a breeze. The JTV-69 is loaded with a pair of single-coil pickups (neck and middle positions), and custom-wound humbuckers (bridge) designed by James Tyler. Controls include a 5-way blade pickup selector switch, a master volume & tones. A rotary model selector dials the 25 virtual guitars plus sitar, banjo, and resonator guitar tones. A rotary alt tuning selector lets you pick from 12 alternate tunings. Comes standard with a durable, padded gig bag with a stitched Line 6 logo and 2 pockets big enough for all your gig essentials.

Redesigned tremolo bridge
The JTV-69 has a redesigned tremolo bridge that offers improved tone and tuning stability. This design lets the string go into the bridge through the front of the tremolo, which brings the ball end as close to the saddle as possible, instead of stringing it through the tremolo block. This also makes restringing much easier. The knife edges and tremolo pivot posts were designed to provide nearly zero resistance. This, in conjunction with locking tuners gives this standard tremolo bridge much more tuning stability. A Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL nut keeps the strings from gripping and sticking. James Tyler Custom tremolo bridge is also fitted with an LR Baggs Radiance hex pickup system for sweet acoustic guitar tones.

Dual-core Processor
Dual-core processor delivers 4 times the punch. This new chip is smaller, faster, and more powerful. It has allowed Line 6 to run fuller, clearer models of guitar bodies and pickups; let all their models have alternate tunings; improved alternate tuning purity and speed; provided alternate tuning customization; and improved modes of operation and editing. The JVT sounds and responds surprisingly more like a traditional guitar.

Variax Workbench Software
Variax Workbench software is a virtual custom shop. This free software, which can be downloaded from the Line-6 web site, lets you create custom models on your computer and upload them to your JTV-59 via its built-in USB port. Choose from famous guitar bodies, pickups, pickup placement, tone and volume controls, and tweak away until you've designed the guitar of your dreams – without choking on sawdust!

This combination USB interface and software package for James Tyler Variax guitars allows you to see and hear the physical changes to your custom guitar in real-time. Ever wonder what a single-coil pickup would sound like on a hollow-body guitar tuned an octave down? Probably not. That's because it wasn't a reality – until now.

The Alt Tune Knob
Each James Tyler Variax modeling guitar has a dedicated Alt Tune knob. This knob has 12 settings, including two labeled "Model" and "Standard." Set to "Model," the Alt Tune knob lets you access the alternate tunings you created using Variax Workbench virtual guitar workbench software. These tunings are stored on your Variax's Model knob. Set to "Standard," the Alt Tune knob overrides saved tunings to set every model to standard "E-to-E" tuning. The Alt Tune knob's remaining 10 settings are the most commonly used tunings found in the popular genres of the day.

The Virtual capo feature lets you easily transpose any song to the key that suits you vocalist. And you can adjust your tuning on the fly without having to do on "Workbench" software.

Battery powered DSP
A proprietary lithium-ion battery delivers at least 12 hours of continuous performance. A 4-LED battery life meter lets you know how much rocking time you have left. Rolling down the volume knob when not playing will automatically put the DSP to sleep and helps maximize battery life. So even with your cable still plugged in, you will not be using battery power. DSP wakes up instantly when you turn the volume back up. The JTV-69 functions as a standard electric guitar whether the battery installed or not.

I've only had this for two weeks, but that is enough to review it.

First, the guitar itself is quite nice, though I'm sure the USA made versions are somewhat better. This is still the same electronics (for the variax) as the more expensive models though and that is mainly what I got it for.

It stays in tune very well, as well as Ibanez guitars with zero-trems. (I don't do any radical dive bombing though)

Everyone wants to know if the modeled sounds are good... well, they are!
People want to know if the pitch-change works well, ... it does, so long as you don't radically alter pitch. For instance, the drop D, DADGAD and open G tunings are all very good. There is no noticeable delay between picking the note and hearing the altered pitch through your system.

However, there is a very noticeable "warbling" when extreme pitch changes are used, especially on the Baritone setting. I suspect that that is nearly impossible to fix with current chip-set speeds and bit depth. That's probably OK for kids who use tons of distortion. If you wanted to play clean country licks with the Baritone setting, forget it. The low notes have digital artifacts that even a beginner would hear.

The main thing I love about the guitar is that it is a GOOD guitar. Nice tuning machines, great bridge and trem, comfortable body, solid neck, nice fret work, and it plays in tune! Mine came almost perfect from the box, so I haven't tweaked it much yet, but I suspect it will be easy after looking at the fine components Mr Tyler designed. All the hardware is A+ quality.

The stock passive pickups are good too! Some may long for more power, others for more high end... that's always a trade off. Again Mr Tyler's experience shows here. The stock pickups sound very authentic. In fact, you can switch between the modeled strat and the pickups to hear there is little difference between the two.

Since alternate tunings ideally require different gauges of strings and a proper set-up on individual guitars, I have never messed around with them much. It is too expensive and too much hassle. About the only alt-tuning I have experience with is the Drop D and open G. So my personal reason for getting this was to experiment with other tunings. I find it especially helpful when students want to do new tunes by younger artists that always seem to favor alt tunings. For that purpose, this is a great time-saver and a great value.

I have a LOT of experience with real American Strats, Teles and Pauls, so I can attest those models are VERY authentic.

The acoustic models are quite good too, but they only sound really great through a FULL RANGE system. They are convincing enough through a regular guitar amp if you use a clean setting with ZERO distortion and the treble UP, but guitar amps never have the high-frequency content that acoustic simulation requires.

Therefore, I can recommend this to teachers, players who want different tunings and gigging musicians who need a versatile axe without carrying many guitars. If you intend to use the acoustic models much, be sure to use a full range system of some kind.

Complaints: Other than the digital glitches (warbling) on extreme pitch setting, I think the twelve-string models could be a little more in tune. It sounds like they intentionally detuned the octave strings to make the sound more "authentic." Perhaps that is what people want, but I would really prefer better intonation on 12 string settings.

So far, the battery life is as advertised, so I'm thrilled with that. My older model Line 6 variax ate batteries. The new technology has improved that greatly.

Overall, this guitar competes strongly with any other production guitar on the market, just as a plain guitar. When you add the modeling features, it becomes a no-brainer. Perhaps they will improve even more in the future as technology progresses, but I felt this was worth the investment now since it is almost perfect.

Unless the laws of physics suddenly change or human hearing evolves unexpectedly, this sounds as close to the real thing as you can get without investing MANY thousands. It sounds like great recordings of famous guitars.

At this price range, that is a heck of a deal.

Here were my problems:
1)Sticky Guitar Model Selector. Had to take off knob to be able to push stem to activate Selector. It was like the knob was too big for the hole it is set into. Might have been able to fix this, but then, that's not MY job. Is it? I could have damaged it further in the process.
2)6th string buzzed and lost all volume from 2nd fret progressively worse to 12th. At 12th and above, sat right against 13th fret. Possibly remedied by raising bridge, but that would've taken an experienced tech with the tremolo bridge involved.
3)1st string fell off the fretboard with the slightest bend downward. How do you fix that?
4)Tremolo bar would pitch down, but not up...not even slightly. Was it set up wrong?
5)Guitar Model sounds were, IMO, mostly cheesy. Not sure they were authentic or not, but Banjo, Sitar, 12-string Acoustic and Reso models were not. If this is what these sounds were meant to be, I think they are sorely lacking.
6)Manual shipped with product was too basic. Should have printed and included the manuals available online.
I might have been able to get items 1) through 4) fixed. But 5) is what it is.I'm convinced---and disappointed---that this particular guitar was not tested or set up between time it came off the line til it reached my home. If it had been played even once, it would have undergone repair immediately. This one totally missed the quality control test.
I'd recommend finding a store that has two or more of each model desired to test before making purchase decision.
If I just got a lemon, sorry for the criticism.

On a better note, can't say enough good about MF's return process. Accepted the return with no (well, very few) questions asked. Cost me only return postage via UPS (not much), took about 10 minutes on the phone (haven't gotten final credit yet, but I assume that's on the way). If I thought I'd just gotten a lemon, I'd get another one shipped and try it out, but unfortunately, I think I'll just get a fancy effects pedal and another guitar for alternate tunings.

Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

A fellow musician has this guitar, so I knew what I was buying. I needed a guitar that gave me some special sounds (12 string, acoustic, banjo) for some upcoming shows - didn't want to haul a bunch of extra instruments to the show. Guitar was setup fine right out of the box. The cap on the guitar voice knob was unattached on arrival, but a quick call to Line 6 and they sent a new one immediately. The JTV-69 gives lots of sound options, and the base guitar is sturdy and works well just as an electric guitar. The neck is a bit thicker/wider than I usually play, but it's workable. Versatile, decent quality tone, fun sounds, programmable. Worth the deal (especially since I got it with a rebate!)

      Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

      I wanted one guitar for multiple tunes that required LP, strat, 12 string, acoustic etc. I have also started to learn slide and alternative tunings. I was impressed with the videos and reviews on online (Youtube, Line 6).
      It arrived quickly, i liked the set up and playability out of the box.
      Much like other reviews, I have discovered some nit picks:
      - You need to play with headphones if low volume, to not hear the acoutsic interference of strings if in alternate tuning
      - the top E string slips of the neck rather easily when vibrato etc. I have adjusted my playing accordingly.
      - My inline Boss tuner on my pedal board did not want to work and in trying to (incorrectly) tune two strings "popped off" at the neck tuning pegs. The strings were cut real short. The locking mechanism on the tuning pegs just pinches the string, and does not lock the motion of the tuner..
      - When I replaced the string i fed the string into the bridge from above, it's fiddly and I'm not sure this is the correct method. I could not find any decent instruction on this on line or in User manuals.
      - I use a "clip" tuner now that uses vibration through the neck

      I have used it at band practice now and am starting to dial it in. I think the tones are good. You do need to adjust for low output pickups when modeled, just like the real guitars.

      I have yet to use the Variax Workbench, but will do soon to find flying V and Out-of-phase Les pauls for our Albert King and Peter Green numbers.

      In conclusion, I think well made and sounds good, and very versatile. I could have bought 3 or 4 Squire vintage Modified series guitars for the same money...but I don't have the cupboard space :-)

      Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

      A friend talked me into getting this for recording purposes. I wasn't sure about it at first, but am glad he did. It plays well and sound good even with out the emulation. Its quite and sounds good. Great for recording. Its a bolt on neck, but plays well and has good sustain. I personally don't like the lighter color of the wood on the neck, but that's just me. The workbench software is great. I love it.

      Three things that I did not like about it.
      1) The USB interface for workbench it comes with is a cheaper version than you buy independently and it did not work (DOA). Though Line 6 agreed to send me a new one it still has not yet arrived 3 weeks later. Luckily my friend let me borrow his to test it out.
      2) The Line 6 Monkey Driver software is terrible and buggy. If you have "too many" USB devices connected to your PC it can't find your Line 6 device.
      3). The software installation was failing because of my Avast antivirus software. Took a while to figure out the problem and wasn't a intuitive error message either. Not sure what they have going on that would set off that red flag, but oh well.

      Despite the software frustration its sounds great and is worth the money when you get it up and running.

      I got this a couple of weeks ago and its a very decent instrument. I watched tons of youtube videos and did my research before buying this, and it did not disappoint.

      Its a fast neck and a nice looking guitar. I got the black.

      Regd the features, i use the drop D feature quite a bit. It is great especially if you are in a cover band/recording for other artists etc. I like two of the guitar sounds (Les Paul and the acoustic)

      The fret buzz was a little prominent the first week, but its disappeared since.

      The Line 6 helpline were also available to answer any queries. Thats a big plus !

      Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

      Now that I finally have a working model with all parts and accessories, I've got to admit I haven't as excited about playing guitar since I learned my first few chords! I'd choose the JTV-69 strat-style guitar over a Fender strat: the neck feels right; the pickups are good; James Tyler made some good upgrades - the nut, the locking tuners, the bridge style. About the only thing that's ugly is the lame way they printed his name on the headstock, but that's no biggie. I'd play it even if it *didn't* have the emulated guitars in it. Speaking of - they are 95% spot on for my ears. The acoustic sounds best through headphones or a tweaked PA, and same goes for the resonator/banjo type ones. Other than those, I can play Lennon's Casino, McGuinn's Rickenbacker, Atkins' 6120...MusiciansFriend customer service was excellent after my first came w/o accessories and my 2nd came with dud electronics. Sent me both replacements 2nd day air. My only complaints: 1. they downgraded the tuners for the Korean models vs. the customs for no good reason; 2. they should throw in either an extra battery or that foot pedal that they deceitfully imply is available. Would buy again if it were stolen. Is now my main gigging guitar.

        Be a digital Leo Fender or Les Paul, create YOUR sound. If you have a vision this guitar w/ the workbench software will take you there.

        Anyone saying the sounds in variax mode were bad or cheesy that's the way YOU left it. One would not simply pop a battery into a stompbox and expect to get a desired effect? No you would take time to dial it in. So why wouldn't you do the same with a guitar that has literally 1000s of combinations.

        You will loose hours tinkering and experimenting in the workbench. GREAT FUN!

        The dial up tuning is as fun as you would hope. Though when playing at lower volumes i'd suggest a set of closed cans, otherwise you'll be hearing a mix of standard tuning off the guitar and the processed alt tuning through the amp/monitor.

        Great AXE.

          Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

          My 2nd Variax; I have a Variax 700 bought just before JT model came out. I like the 700 allot & I like the improvements in the JTV69.

          The magnetic pick-ups sound great. The 6 string models sound very convincing (like the 700).

          Locking Tuners and the Vibrato Bridge stay in tune beautifully; great engineering.

          Neck plays beautifully; exactly the same in the 3 Variax guitars I have played; very consistent set-up quality control.

          The 12 string modeling was the weakest feature in the 700; this seems improved in the JT to the point where I will use it, but only selectively. Sliding and fast note changes with 12 string play still sound a bit synthetic.

          Like the virtual tuning allot, though I think the baritone is an over reach, especially in 12 string models.

          I want to give a shout-out to Musicians Friend Customer Service. First JT69 I received had a defective model selector knob. My Customer Service contact rocked!! He was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. A replacement guitar was over-nighted to me. I am very, very impressed!!

            I also own The Roland G-5. Both guitars are excellent additions to my collection. The only thing about the variax that was an adjustment for me was playing with 10's. I prefer 9's. I also have the line 6 hd 500x. Great set up when paired! I have been playing guitar for 50 years. I play very electric guitar blues.

              Comments about Line 6 JTV-69 Variax Electric Guitar:

              First and foremost I would like to thank MF for thier time and exclent service they bent over backwards for me on this and it was greatly appreciated. The only way to put this was like when you breakup with that great girl friend, you know the one that was smoking hot but had breath that would knock over an elephant, or had a laugh that makes a baby cry! "its not you, its me"
              Im neurotic, and my ears are just to old school, I have owned maybe 12+ guitars ranging from American made to the finest Japan has to offer in a Team J-craft Ibanez to just plain old korean made Telecaster. Sowith that to compair to, without a doubt I thought the JTV-69 is a great sounding guitar. On its own or with the variax system, the feel was great, the pickups are up there with some of the best Ive heard. The thing I loved most about this guitar hands down was the satin finish on the neck. I had no issues with the frets, or the variax button, like some have had. I really liked how it fit my big clumsy hand. I also had 2/3rds of the "Dream Rig" an HD500 to go with the JTV-69, and played this thing from morning to night for several days. Creating some excellent tones and textures, but at the end of the day it was my ears that could not buy the sound, and my head I could not wrap around the system. Not technical wise just sound wise, I did own a L6 X3Live befor this and used it with tube amps and a pair of Rokit 5's, so I was used to and prepaired for the tweaking. As cool of a system as it is I just could not do it. Now that being said would I recomend this guitar and system? Yes. Try it it out it may be the one for you, and for studio stuff this thing is a dream come true For players who need a wide veriaty of tones and sounds who could ask for more. So again like we all have had to tell that girl (or guy) friend at one time or another, that was the hottest, sexxiest, and the whole package, "its not you,.....its me ".
