Line 6 Variax JTV-89F Blood Red · Electric Guitar

Line 6 updates their Variax guitars with the James Tyler Variax series of excellent and affordable JTV-89 electric guitar you can use for an incredible range of music. On its own the Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax is an amazing guitar built to the specifications of Californian luthier James Tyler with a mahogany body topped with flame maple, a super-fast bolt-on maple neck and a 24-fret 14-inch radius rosewood fingerboard for serious shredding power. Unlike past Variax models the Line 6 JTV-89 features a pair of real custom-wound humbuckers designed by James Tyler and built to his specifications. Even without the Line 6 Variax technology onboard, the JTV-89 is a wonderful electric guitar on its own.

Inside the Line 6 James Tyler Variax JTV-89 guitar is a updated Variax modelling system that allows you to reshape your sound and retune your guitar at the turn of a dial or two. Ttwist the tone selector dial on the Line 6 JTV-89 Variax and switch from a 6-string solidbody to a 12-string acoustic, or from a humbucker configuration to a single-coil setup. Apply alternate tunings such as drops, open tunings, and capos with the Line 6 JTV-89 Variax's second selector wheel up at the neck that switches between 11 tunings without altering either the feel or the tension of the guitar strings.

Controls on the Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax modelling guitar include a 5-way blade pickup selector switch and master volume and tones. A rotary model selector dials the 25 virtual guitars plus sitar, banjo, and resonator guitar tones. A rotary alt tuning selector picks from 12 alternate tunings. The fully adjustable Tyler Custom stoptail bridge is fitted with an L.R. Baggs Radiance Hex piezo pickup system for sweet acoustic guitar tones. A Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL nut keeps the strings from gripping and sticking.

The Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax is not locked into a predefined set of tunings and models. Line 6's Workbench software, a free download from Line 6's website, lets you create custom models on a computer and upload them to a Line 6 JTV-89 Variax guitar via a built-in USB port. Define body styles, dimensions, pickup configuration, and define custom tunings at the push of a couple of buttons, fretting your guitar, and plucking each string individually. A new Li-Ion battery pack provides 12 solid hours of playing time.

The Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax modelling guitar has a dedicated Alt Tune knob with 12 settings, including two labeled Model and Standard. Set to Model, the Alt Tune knob accesses the alternate tunings created using Variax Workbench virtual guitar workbench software. These tunings are stored on your Variax's Model knob. Set to Standard, the Alt Tune knob overrides saved tunings to set every model to standard E-to-E tuning. The Alt Tune knob's remaining 10 settings are the most commonly used tunings used by modern metal shredding style guitarists.

The Virtual capo feature lets you easily transpose any song to the key that suits your vocalist. And you can adjust your tuning on the fly without having to use Workbench software.

The Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax modelling guitar ships with a durable padded gig bag with a stitched Line 6 logo and two pockets big enough for all your gig essentials.

Take the stage with a guitar shop's worth of instruments and never have to swap out your guitar or its batteries with the Line 6 JTV-89 James Tyler Variax modelling guitar. No more carrying acoustics and electrics to gigs or recording studios. Variax gives you an endless variety of sounds from classic acoustic and electric tones all the way to sitar and banjo, all in one guitar.
