25 guitars, 11 tunings, 1 exceptional instrument. In 2002, Line 6 launched Variax modeling guitars. These groundbreaking instruments offered guitarists an unprecedented range of tones based on the most desirable electric and acoustic guitars on the planet. To develop the latest evolution of Variax guitars, Line 6 partnered with legendary luthier James Tyler to craft an exceptional instrument and the perfect delivery system for Variax technology.
The Line 6 JTV-69 is designed in the tradition of the classic 25-1/2" scale bolt-neck, three-pickup solidbody, but updated for today's demanding player. It features a comfortably rounded Tyler '59 neck profile and a James Tyler Custom Tremolo bridge engineered for increased resonance and improved tuning stability over vintage units.
The three-pickup format features single-coil early-'60s Strat style pickups in the neck and middle positions, and a PAF-style humbucker in the bridge (all loaded with alnico magnets and wound to James Tyler's specs).

Good but maybe flawed

Good Points: The modelling is much better than the previous Variax generation - you really notice the improvement that doubling the processing power has given. Battery and charging system is a huge improvement, and it’s nice to have the magnetic pickups just in case (though, to me, 2 pickups neck and bridge would have been better, giving more space for fingerpicking in the middle when using Acoustic models). They play very, very nicely, except...
Bad Points: Biggest bad point is tuning instability due to the tremolo not returning. This seems to be a design problem. They have already completely changed the design in this model’s short life. Still seem to be some problems. I preferred the styling of the Variax 700 also, though that’s personal preference.
