Line 6 JTV-69 James Tyler Variax electric guitar, finished in 3-Tone Sunburst, features a classic 3 pickup design with tremolo and gives guitarists unprecedented tone-crafting potential within a very familiar guitar shape. Line 6 JTV-69 James Tyler Variax solid body style 6-string single cuataway transforms it's tone with 25 award winning electric and acoustic guitar models. Just a simple twist of JTV-69 James Tyler Variax intuitive selector knob is all it takes to wring the best out of this guitar, without the need to carry rack-fulls of outboard equipment round with you. JTV-69 Variax features the revolutionary ultra-sensitive and more reliable L.R. Baggs Radiance Hex (polyphonic) piezo pickups loaded into the bridge saddles.
Line 6 JTV-69 Variax is designed in the tradition of the classic 25-1/2” scale bolt-neck, three-pickup solidbody (but updated for today’s demanding player), the Sunburst 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-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. Line 6 JVT-69 Variax in 3-tone sunburst adds up to a supreme player’s machine, even before the Variax guitar modeling enters the game.
