Line 6 Variax JTV-59 CSB

John7684, 29.04.2015
Perfect guitar, I have owned a JTV-89 and another JTV-59. Both of them were broken and i got a replacement almost instantly despite living in another country.
There were really fast to respond to my complaints and answered my calls almost immediately.

I highly recommend using this guitar with a VDI cable trough on of the LINE 6 POD HD units with the battery taken out. That way you can change tuning, guitar modell and so on with the HD unit which makes songwriting amazing.

The software included is also amazing. You can go as far as putting Humbuckers 45 degrees to the right on a banjo and save it on the guitar.

Sadly you can't reset the guitar without going into the computer but it's a small price to pay for the awesomeness that is Line6 JTV-59

A lot of guitar for the money!

Thomas956, 03.02.2015
The guitar is well crafted, flawlessly lacquered and looks really good with its finely striped Cherry Sunburst top. The pots run creamy and the Variax-typical rotary switches are handy and have a good pressure point for the push function, they are even amazingly easy to read (illuminated from the inside in the Variax mode), if one has got used to it. The built-in humbuckers sound full, full and round, really fat actually, so that you can operate the part very well without electricity.
The only - and for me incomprehensible - deficiency are the tuners, they have clear game, you turn, first nothing happens, then too much, etc., tuning is a matter of luck and the parts are not worthy of such a guitar. Will replace them with Schaller mechanics.
The associated software Workbench HD, which you can download from the Line6 website works for me, in contrast to my pre-test on the MacBook without any problems, not a single crash so far, and the editing of sounds and upload to the Variax works flawlessly. Required cables and USB interface are already included in the accessories. Most factory sounds are already very good, but I immediately reworked on the 12-string guitars, which sounded much too detuned in my opinion. What the hammer on the software is: you can assemble a guitar "from scratch" within a reasonable amount of time, body, pickups incl. Positions, electrics, number of strings, tuning, just everything, and above all always listening to what it sounds like - a lot Field to experiment ...
For me most important, on stage in a song, switching between Tele, 6-string Martin, 12-string Guild and Coral-Sitar (which sounds great, for example), the whole thing in the Drop D tuning, and then perhaps the solo on the internal humbucker, that's just possible with the Variax.
In the studio, I would continue to take my real 12-string, but for the regular bread-and-butter gigs I drag in the future less stuff rum.
So: a lot of guitar for the money! One point deduction for the cheap tuner, otherwise full score.
Addendum: Have now changed the mechanics (after a long research against Schaller M6 135, which fit perfectly without drilling), that is a difference like day and night, now it is sensitive to vote and remains stable.
