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.

My universal genius!

Rockpiper, 11.08.2017
What a great guitar! As a Paula player I was genius about Strat guys rather skeptical - but the JTV is great to play, has a great side position, bendings work fine and even with the slide it is excellent. Optics and haptics are flawless - simple & beautiful. Also to the processing there is nothing to suspend. The "normal" Stratsounds are already good, beautifully crisp. And with the modeling I have now reached a flexibility which is second to none - a guitar for everything. Whether Banjo, Dobro, 12-string, Paula, Rickenbacker - everything sounds very authentic in the band structure. Even the Acoustiksounds are very well-performing and bring a nice sound-nuance, especially in combination with two other real Acoustik-Klampfen. The different simulated moods also function well without the tonal discrepancy being noticed. Whether Droped D, Open G, 1 tone lower, 1/2 tone higher everything goes great. We have tuned our instruments a half tone lower, even then it funtioniert. The singer wants a half deeper? Despite the lower tuned guitar with the original recording practice? No problem! If you are working with two batteries, you will never be embarrassed as a frequent player, a battery is enough for a 4h gig. I found my dream guitars with the JTV - whether metal, whether country, rock, the part sounds simply cool - and never again guaranty dragging guitars, one is enough!
