The Line 6 Variax JTV-59 electric guitar makes the lives of all guitarists much easier. Session players, regular touring guitarists, and even stay-at-home jammers get to benefit from the awesome model that was designed and built by the dream team that included master luthier James Tyler and Line 6.

Have you ever setup for a recording, laid down some ideas, and then wished you could swap instruments, e.g. electric to acoustic, but it's just seemed like too much hassle? Or maybe you've got a gig coming up and don't fancy lugging around multiple guitars; wish you could make use of solid/semi-hollow/acoustic body types without swapping guitars?

Well the Line 6 Variax JTV-59 electric guitar gives puts flexibility and power in your hands: 25 guitars, 11 tunings, 1 exceptional instrument.

Sleek and Beautiful Curves

The Line 6 Variax JTV-59 in sublime cherry sunburst, is far more than just a modelling guitar. James Tyler crafted this model to be a guitarist's guitar, which meant starting from the ground up.

The single-cutaway body shape is similar to that of one of the world's most popular models, with a tonewood composition to match. The body comprises a solid mahogany back, which is paired with a sublime maple top with flame maple veneer; a partnership that has endured for decades due to its exquisite balance of both resounding low-end and crisp articulation in the mid to high frequency range. The body is fitted with a fully adjustable Tyler-designed wraparound bridge, creating a secure and anchored playing feel along with ensuring a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimal intonation.

Fitted to the body is a set mahogany neck, which reinforces the sustain generated across the strings and backs up the resonant character of the mahogany in the body. The neck is shaped to the delightfully slender Tyler '59 neck profile. Married to the neck is a 22 medium-jumbo frets rosewood fingerboard with dot position inlays. The single-cutaway body design enables easier access to the upper frets, giving you the freedom of the entire fingerboard. The Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL self-lubricating nut upholds string tension accurately, whilst the sealed tuners with 16:1 gear ratio keep strings held firmly throughout each and every performance.

Sophisticated Electronics

The JTV-59 has been fitted with a pair of vintage-voiced alnico neck and bridge humbuckers that have been wound to Tyler's specs, with control in the form of Master Volume and Master Tone knobs. The pickups respond with warmth and clarity, yielding a measured bite when given a little nudge in the right direction, and searing tones when they're really pushed.

The magic lies in the Model Knob, and the Alt-Tune Roller control, both of which enable easy access for selecting various instrument sounds and alternate tunings. On offer is a range of solidbody guitar models, semi-hollowbodys, acoustics, 12-strings, and even a Sitar. Some of the guitars that are modelled by this instrument would cost A range of different tunings can be quickly dialled-in, so if you want to bounce between different instruments or tunings in rapid succession, you can do so without a moment's hesitation.

The Variax JTV-59 comes with the Variax Workbench HD software and USB interface, which acts as your very own personal guitar custom shop. The easy to use interface allows you to mix and match a wide variety of instrument body and pickup models, so that you can create your dream models for recall whenever you want.

The Line 6 Variax JTV-59 electric guitar in cherry sunburst comes with a high-quality padded gig bag as standard, keeping it safe from harm from your home to the studio and/or stage. If versatility is what you crave, and you don't want to compromise on quality of tone, then the JTV-59 is an absolute must-have. This beauty plays like a dream, responding superbly with grace and precision, putting more expensive models to shame.
