The Line 6 Variax JTV-69 is an extremely comprehensive modeling electric guitar, which offers unimagined sonic possibilities especially in cooperation with the Variax HD technology. Built in classic ST style, the instrument features an HSS pickup setup consisting of two Alnico single coils and a humbucker on the bridge, while the L.R. Baggs Radiance Hex piezo pickup in the bridge of the Variax JTV-69 expands the sound variety of conventional guitar amplifiers enormously. If you use the HD modeling of Variax technology, the JTV-69 not only lets you easily change the sound of your guitar to other unusual sounds such as a banjo, resonator guitar or 12-string, but can also change the tuning in seconds. Last but not least the Line 6 Variax JTV-69 comes with a padded noble gig bag.
The Line 6 Variax JTV-69 has a high recognition value both visually and haptically due to its classic construction and is composed of an alder body with a screwed-on maple neck and a glued-on ebony fingerboard. Thanks to the traditional 25.5" bore (648mm), the familiar ST feeling quickly comes to life, especially in bendings and pitch play, while the fully adjustable tremolo system designed by James Tyler together with a self-lubricating Graph Tech Black Tusq XL saddle allows pitch modulation without having to retune.
In addition to Alnico Vintage magnetic pickups wrapped to James Tyler's specifications, the Line 6 Variax JTV-69 features an L.R. Baggs Radiance Hex piezo pickup housed in the tremolo bridge for clear analog acoustic sounds on any amplifier. If you connect the JTV-69 with the Variax Workbench HD software, you can use the JTV-69's tuning control to call up different tunings such as Drop D, DADGAD and Open Tunings without having to change tunings manually. The JTV-69 can also handle the sounds of various pickup setups, acoustic and exotic string instruments. All sounds and tunings can be individually adjusted using the Variax Workbench HD software.
