Good guitar - awful neck

John824, 28.01.2014
I'm a Line6 nut and use a lot of their gear including the Stage Source speaker and mixer set up. There sound modules are great for recording and the M13 effects box is a joy to use.

So...I decided to give the Variax a try.

I had read a great deal about the earlier models, but was not convinced the technology was up to their claims. The introduction of the JTV series changed my view. At last it looked like a guitar I could use so I bought the 69S, a Pod HD500X and a DT-25 combo.

First off, I had to return the first guitar they sent as it had a problem with the selector knob. Thomann were brilliant about swapping it over and the replacement arrived quickly. Then the task of learning the technology began...and it's quite a steep learning curve - particularly the HD500X.

However, the Line6 blogs are very helpful and I was soon getting the hang of switching between an amazing array of electric sound through the DT-25 and routing the acoustic tones through the L3t. Then, I started to become disatisfied with the guitar. It was not comfortable in my hand as the neck was just too '50s!

Rather than ditch the whole experience, I decided to try replacing the neck with a Start-style neck from StewMac and it was a perfect fit for both the neck pocket and, more importantly, the scale length. Intonation is spot on the the neck is much more comfortable in my hand.

The customised guitar along with the rest of the Line6 set-up is now my main stage instrument.

Makes really fun

04.08.2016
After a long decision I decided to go for the JTV69s. While my previous Variax models the neck had not fallen, the handling is now much better. The part is very good. The optics I find also very appealing.

I have been using the guitar for about 2 months and am still very satisfied. On the neck side of the frets 1 to 3 light traces of use appear in the lacquer, but the neck is still wonderful playable. The strings are also good, so that good speeds are possible.
The. Potis offer a light resistance, so they can be easily dosed. Since the modeling works only with current, one needs (if one no suitable line6 effect device has) a battery. This makes the JTV feel heavier than comparable guitars. The battery lasts approximately 8 hours, but is relatively quickly recharged to a usable charge state. The 'Füllstamd' can be requested via a button on the back. If the bat is empty, you can only play on pickups (no modeling).
I like the sound very well. The guitar has two systems: pickups (classic SSS) and piezo (for modeling).
Already the single coils sound neat. Direction Strat, but something crisp. There is already something to begin with.
The modelingsoundssound I liked predominantly also very good.
Latencies I could not notice, while playing notes this one does not, whether one over pickup or Piezo plays. But the "modeled" moods are in need of habituation, as Saitenton and Ampton disintegrate.

Whether in the individual case actually modeling sounds are deceptively genuine to the respectively named original - because I do not have the originals at home, I can say badly. :) The range of guitar sounds is quite enormous. The precision of the copying sound I think is absolutely ok for the practical use - and if, like usual, a few effects hang behind it, this is probably true.
Classics such as 'Telecaster', 'Strat' or 'Les Paul' can be easily distinguished (without any special goodwill).
The Acousticsounds are not bad, but tend to be seen as modeled. For example, one has to make cuts in the dynamics, here the modeling appears (still) at borders. But I do not find it bad, because as a soundelement in a band sound works the acoustic impression nevertheless well.
All in all, it is a very good guitar. Small criticism is the higher weight.
