"The James Tyler Variax is my combination secret weapon and Swiss Army knife. Whenever I go to the studio, it goes with me. Need a Tele? I got it. Wish you had a sitar? No problem. Miss that Firebird you never should have sold? Click... there it is. This guitar has filled more sonic production holes than any instrument or device I have ever owned." 
Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, Tin Machine)

“James Tyler Variax is a godsend! Having Strat, Tele, Les Paul, banjo, dobro, sitar, acoustic and 12-string models in one guitar is technology at it's finest. For years I had to refrain from playing acoustic tunes live because I could only travel with one guitar. Now I can play anything I want! This guitar was obviously designed by guitar players and not just engineers.”
Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck)

"This thing is amazing live… At one point of the show I go from 1/2 step down tuning to standard tuning with a drop D instantly! I no longer sweat the show order and guitar changes—JTV allows me to just PLAY!"

 
Jerry McPherson (Tim McGraw band)

"With the James Tyler Variax, Line 6 has impeccably mixed playability and versatility in a way that has never been done. It is a remarkable instrument!"
busbee (songwriter/producer; Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts)

"The JTV-59 is a great guitar to have in my arsenal. It looks and plays great, and the ability to get different guitar sounds and tunings makes it a no-brainer for live and studio use."
Michael Britt (Lonestar)

"I finally came across the perfect mix of technology and tone in the James Tyler Variax! It's the main guitar I play in every show. Variax allows me to do everything from Open tunings to E flat with the twist of a knob or push of a button, without any loss in tone or playability. It is hands down the coolest instrument available today."
Michael Williams (Michael Williams Band)

"I'm surprised that the JTV-69 isn't made of rubber because it's such a flexible sonic tool. High-quality construction, sharp looks, and great tones are combined to create a groundbreaking instrument that can be utilized in a wide range of musical settings." 
Paul "TFO" Allen (Big & Rich, Ten Finger Orchestra)
