The Line 6 James Tyler Variax 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.
25 guitars, 11 tunings, 1 exceptional instrument
60 years ago, modern music was transformed by the advent of the electric guitar. This revolutionary new instrument proved to be incredibly expressive, and allowed players to connect to their music and their audiences in powerful ways. As music evolved, traditional electric guitars clung to the past – but others provided broader palates of sounds.
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 Modelling Technology
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. Choose from:
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” 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.
