The Line 6 Variax JTV-69 electric guitar is the recording/live guitarist’s dream. When you’re laying down ideas in the studio, the last thing you want to do is break up the creative flow by chopping and changing instruments. Likewise, when you’re onstage, if you’re cruising through an improvised solo, or simply transitioning between songs, wouldn’t it be way easier to simply flick a switch and get the tone you want, instead of switching guitars?
Well thanks to the master luthier James Tyler and the team at Line 6, the Variax JTV-69 puts the power of flexibility directly in your hands: 25 guitars, 11 tunings, 1 exceptional instrument.
Ergonomically Designed Body and Neck
The Line 6 JTV-69 in Lake Placid Blue is a double-cutaway dream with an ergonomically-designed body profile that is perfectly balanced and incredibly comfortable to play. The body is built using alder, a tonewood that itself possesses the enviable characteristic of producing a sweetly balanced tonal output. A James Tyler Custom Tremolo bridge is fitted to the body, offering sublime vibrato control, and has been engineered to guarantee optimal intonation and sustain.Fitted to the body is a classic 25-1/2" scale bolt-on neck with slender Tyler '59 neck profile. Married to the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard with dot position inlays, making it a breeze to navigate. The sealed locking/staggered tuners with 16:1 gear ratio keep your strings held firmly throughout each and every performance, whilst the self-lubricating Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL nut maintains string tension with the utmost accuracy.
The JTV-69 is equipped with three-pickups: an Alnico humbucker in the bridge, and vintage-style neck and middle single-coil pickups wound to Tyler's own specifications. As you'd expect, there are Master Volume and Master Tone knobs for ready control over the pickups.
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.
