Line 6 JTV-89F Variax Electric Guitar Black Floyd Rose
Line 6 JTV-89is first and foremost an amazing guitar. The JTV-89 sports a beautiful custom mahogany body with a Floyd Rose tremolo. A super-fast bolt-on maple neck and a 24-fret, 14"-radius rosewood fingerboard give this axe serious shredding power. Unlike the Variax models of the past, the JTV-89 features a pair of real custom-wound humbuckers. These pickups were designed by James Tyler and built to his specifications. The JTV-89 is a wonderful instrument on its own even without the Variax technology onboard.
But there's a lot more to the James Tyler Variax JTV-89 than meets the eye. Inside, there's a fully updated Variax modeling system. This system lets you instantly reshape your sound and retune your guitar with only the turn of a dial or two. Just twist the tone selector dial on the JTV-89 and jump from a 6-string solidbody to a 12-string acoustic, or from a bold humbucker configuration to a snappy single-coil setup. Applying alternate tunings such as drops, open tunings, and capos is just as easy. The JTV-89 has a second selector wheel up at the neck that lets you instantly switch between 11 tunings without altering either the feel or the tension of your strings.
What's even cooler about the JTV-89 is that you're 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 your computer and upload them to your JTV-89 via its built-in USB port. Define your body style, dimensions, pickup configuration, etc. - the combinations and possibilities are endless! Plus, defining your own custom tunings is as easy as pushing a couple of buttons, fretting your guitar, and plucking each string individually. Also, a new Li-Ion battery pack gives you 12 solid hours of playing time. Now, you can take the stage with a guitar shop's worth of instruments and never have to swap out your axe or its batteries!
