    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.

    Award-winning Variax guitar modeling technology
    Line 6 set the goal posts for digital guitar modeling, and the latest evolution of this technology gives the James Tyler Variax JTV 69 unprecedented tone-crafting potential.

    At a twist of its simple and intuitive selector knob, JTV 69 transforms its tone with 25 award-winning electric and acoustic guitar models, giving you a virtual guitar collection to rival the gear rack of any top studio. Need to roll from country twang 'n' spank to thick bluesy wail to resonator-style shimmer and chime in the course of the same song? The JTV 69 takes you there and beyond, instantly.

    Each model offers nuance-perfect tone inspired by the most desired vintage acoustic and electric guitars, and it does so with more accuracy and tonal purity than ever before (thanks to the ultra-sensitive and more reliable new L.R. Baggs Radiance Hex (polyphonic) piezo pickups loaded into the bridge saddles of JTV 69).

    Top-flight guitar design
    Designed from the ground up by one of the world's foremost luthiers, and manufactured in one of the world's best-respected guitar plants, JTV 69 is a cutting-edge performance tool.

    Designed in the tradition of the classic 25-1/2 inch scale bolt-neck, three-pickup solidbody (but updated for today's demanding player), JTV 69 is made from a body crafted from solid alder, with a maple neck carved to a comfortably rounded Tyler '59 profile and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. This time-tested design yields the bright, percussive snap and bite for which Fender's style guitars have been famed for 60 years, with plenty of bluesy warmth when required.

    To further increase its versatility, the three-pickup format is expanded with a PAF-style humbucker in the bridge that has been designed to complement the single-coil early '60s Strat style pickups in the neck and middle positions (all loaded with alnico magnets and wound to James Tyler's specs).

    Completing the package is a brand-new James Tyler Custom Tremolo bridge (engineered for increased resonance and improved tuning stability over vintage units) that gives you access to the smooth vibrato action that is a big part of this breed of guitar.

    The Variax technology
    • 25 award-winning Variax guitar models inspired by classic vintage electric and acoustic guitars
    • 11 programmable alternate tunings featuring our Virtual Capo system on a dedicated knob

    A decent guitar with a few issues
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have always been a Line 6 product guitar player. I really like what the JVT 69 is capable of doing. My Korean made model could play a bit better (even after it was set up). The lithium battery was not functioning straight from the dealer. Line 6 has ALWAYS been ready to repair any issues. This company stands behind their products. I would highly recommend any Line 6 products to any guitar player. There are many major guitar companies that will NOT stand behind their products like Line 6. I firmly believe money you spend on any Line 6 products is money well spent.

    What a guitar......
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Its a great playing guitar, well built, sounds phenominal - and thats before you switch on the Variax technology. the range of different guitar models and switchable tunings make this guitar so versatile, one guitar instead of a rack full. if you've never played one check the Variax out before you buy your next guitar!

    Great versatile gigging and recording guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Line 6 has come up with a great evolution on the modelling guitar concept and addresses all the issues that there were with the original. Now you don't need an external power block, you have real pickups (which can be mixed in with the modelling tones via the Workbench HD software) and they guitar is really playable. A winner!

    Still working on acoustic sound
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I really like this guitar. Has really nice electric guitar sounds. I have been playing thru line 6 spider jam amp, the acoustic sounds you really have to work with the proper EQing. Which I will do. It's nice being able to call on the twang of a Tele, Strat, Les Paul's. And many others.
