Blast From The Past
If you’ve not been following my previous blog posts about the Line 6 – James Tyler Variax guitars, then click here: http://rowbinet.co.uk/category/line-6/line-6-variax-newsinfo/ There’s also a separate JTV59 in depth review from fellow Line 6 User Expert and Rowbinet guest blogger Nick Mattocks which you will also find via that link.
So what’s the point of me reviewing the same model of JTV59 too? Well everyone has different opinions, as well as having different physical guitars of the same type (which should of course be almost identical)…
Line 6 are soon going to give us a free update to our James Tyler Variax’s and , but what goodies should we expect from the update, and what will it mean for us players when using JTV flash v1.8 with a POD HD500 or POD HD Pro running flash v2.0?

It’s not surprising that Line 6 and James Tyler’s love child, the James Tyler Variax, won the MIA Electric Guitar of the Year 2011 award. They are really well constructed guitars, with some very smart Line 6 black magic thrown in too. If only there was an instant talent switch for us wannabe rock stars… Well there’s certainly not much else this guitar can’t do
