Workbench HD Software

The Workbench HD software makes it possible to build one-of-a-kind custom guitars by combining the HD body styles, HD pickups and components in unique ways. Featuring an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, Workbench HD provides full control over scores of important instrument characteristics such as string pitch, string volume, pickup position and much more. Workbench HD also lets you select any Variax pickup model and use it with the natural tone and response of your physical James Tyler Variax guitar -- or blend the Variax HD signal with the magnetic pickup sound to create hybrid instruments.

The Ultimate Recording Guitar

Recording guitarists have always had to contend with the challenges of selecting the right guitar for the right tones, tuning/retuning issues, pickup noise in the studio, mics and mic preamps for acoustic guitars, and more. James Tyler Variax eliminates these problems -- so you can concentrate on nailing your performance.

Free Variax HD upgrade features an extensive collection of HD guitars, so you can record with a palette of the world's greatest instrument sounds.

The HD guitar tones in James Tyler Variax are completely free of pickup noise, so you can capture pristine takes without hum.

With James Tyler Variax, there's no need to interrupt the creative flow by finding, tuning and acclimating to the feel of a different instrument. You can easily switch between HD guitars and tunings just by turning the model knob -- enabling you to stay in the moment.

The Variax HD upgrade and Workbench HD software are compatible with all James Tyler Variax guitars.

29 Amazing Instruments in One

By combining patented, industry-leading Line 6 digital modeling technology with boutique-style craftsmanship, James Tyler Variax is the only guitar in the world that can sound like an entire collection of vintage instruments -- 28 models, plus the James Tyler-designed guitar itself. No more dragging piles of instruments to gigs or recording sessions. JTV59P gives you an endless variety of guitar sounds -- from classic acoustic and vintage electric tones all the way to sitar and banjo -- in a single-cut, set-neck, 24-9/16" scale-length guitar with two vintage-voiced P90 soapbar pickups.

18 Vintage Electric Guitars

When it comes to electrics, we've included 18 incredible instruments to take you from classic rock sounds to blues, country and more. Featuring meticulous models based on the* Strat, Les Paul and Rickenbacker guitars, among others, your James Tyler Variax provides instant access to the guitar tones favored by the world's most famous players. Whether you're performing or recording guitar, Variax gives you an amazing breadth of sounds for all styles of music.

10 Amazing Acoustic and Eclectic Instruments

JTV59P makes it easy to switch between electric and acoustic guitar sounds on a moment's notice. The acoustic guitar collection features beautiful six- and twelve-strings, jumbos and a "parlor," ideal for a variety of genres and playing styles. Line 6's breakthrough acoustic guitar modeling technology gives these five models breathtaking depth and detail, capturing the subtle nuances of string vibration through the soundboard and the tonewoods of the original modeled guitar body. You can take your tone even further -- from country music stylings to the sound of the Indian subcontinent -- with the inspiring dobro, sitar, banjo and Tricone models.

1 Finely Crafted Guitar

Inspired by the archetypal single-cut, set-neck guitar with 24-9/16" scale length, JTV59P employs the tonewoods that have made the format legendary since the 1950s. The guitar has a mahogany body with a carved maple top, and a 22-fret mahogany set neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The two P90 soapbar pickups are ideal for blues, classic and modern rock, and more. With or without Variax modeling, JTV59P is a supreme player's instrument.

Access Alternate Tunings -- Instantly

Imagine going from "Brown Sugar" in Open G to "Kashmir" in DADGAD with the twist of a knob. JTV59P provides immediate access to 11 alternate tunings, so you can stay in the creative moment instead of spending quality time with your tuner. You can mix and match any tuning with any instrument -- and also create your own tunings on the fly with Virtual Capo. It's easy to save your custom tunings, either to the open Model slot on the Alt Tune knob, or to one of the other alternate tuning slots.

Create Custom Instruments with Variax Workbench

Variax Workbench is your personal custom shop -- with a twist. The software takes you far beyond what's possible in the physical realm, so the only limit is your imagination. Mix and match the 28 instrument body models (solid-body, semi-hollow or hollow) with any of the 17 pickup models (single-coil or humbucking) to create unique guitar tones or celebrated classics. You can fine-tune all the details of each tone, or change your tuning to Open G, DADGAD, Drop D, or anything else you can imagine, without ever needing a tuner. Once you load your custom instruments into your JTV59P, it's easy to access them with a twist of the Model Selector or Alternate Tuning knobs.

Designed by James Tyler, Master Luthier

Spot-on, industry-leading modeling is only half of the James Tyler Variax story. Equally important are the innovative design and boutique playing experience provided by master luthier James Tyler. Tyler's visionary concepts and meticulous attention to detail have made his guitars the top choice of world-renowned session players and performers -- and made him the perfect partner for the Variax guitar series. Each James Tyler Variax guitar was designed by Tyler and is built to his exacting specifications to ensure exceptional playability.

Exceptional Playability

James Tyler has made a career of understanding what makes vintage instruments so phenomenally playable, and applied this expertise to the James Tyler Variax modeling guitars. Since the feel of the neck is one of the most important aspects of a guitar, he chose a proven neck shape from his custom work -- and designed the neck joint to provide absolute access to the upper frets. In short, JTV59P sounds and feels incredible.

Vintage-voiced P90 Pickups

Two P90 soapbar pickups give JTV59P a classic look, while the vintage tone is versatile enough for everything from classic edge-of-breakup blues tones to modern rock and beyond. Compared to traditional humbuckers, the sound of these single-coil pickups is somewhat brighter and more transparent.

Custom Wraparound Bridge

One of the most integral parts of any guitar is the bridge, where seemingly small changes can mean huge differences in tone and tuning stability. James Tyler leveraged years of experience to design a custom, fully adjustable wraparound bridge for the JTV59P.

Premium Nut, Tuners and More

A high-quality guitar nut also plays a critical role in maintaining tuning stability and extending the life of your strings. As you hit the strings on a fixed-bridge guitar, they flex, retract and move in the nut -- and if they bind even a little, you'll end up quite out of tune. That's why Tyler chose the precision-engineered, self-lubricating Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL nut, which allows the strings to move -- and enhances the JTV59P guitar's performance and tone by bringing out hidden harmonics in each note.

Play for 12 Hours -- Or All Night

JTV59P features a long-lasting, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which delivers at least 12 hours of playing time on a single charge. It also features a four-LED battery life meter, which lets you know how much time you have left. To get the most from each charge, simply roll down the volume when you're not using the guitar, and the electronics will go to sleep after just a few seconds. And thanks to the pickup bypass function, you can always use the guitar without batteries.

Get More from Your JTV59P

Unlike a traditional guitar, James Tyler Variax modeling guitars can expand their capabilities over time. Line 6 is continually working to refine Variax technology, so be sure to check Line6.com for updates that enhance your James Tyler Variax guitar -- and the way it integrates with your other Line 6 gear.

The Dream Rig

Individually, the JTV59P guitar, DT25 or DT50 amplifier and POD HD500 multi-effect processor are powerful sonic tools. Collectively, they form the ultimate integrated dream rig -- and provide limitless sonic possibilities. With the press of a single footswitch, you can change sounds, routing, instruments, effects and tuning -- instantly transforming your setup into virtually any rig.
