Workbench hardware was included with my James Tyler Variax 59. I downloaded the software free.
Be aware that Variax Workbench is a software/hardware solution.
You can download the Workbench software and play with it offline/not connected to guitar,
but without the hardware you cannot use it to manipulate Variax models and tunings.
If they do not include the hardware with the guitar, you will have to purchase it separately.Attachments:

All previous versions of the Variax 300,500,600,700 did not come with Workbench. You had to buy it as a standalone item at about £80. This is what I did about 6 months after I bought my Variax 700 - so I am fine as I already have a fully paid and licensed copy of Workbench.
The JTV series comes with Workbench included - it is included as part of the price - so it is wrong to offer a JTV + Workbench bundle at £50 more than the standard JTV - because the standard JTV includes Workbench!
I know that DV247 have always offered a Variax Bundle option that included Workbench for about £50 more than the standard cost of the Variax - and for all early models this makes sense and represents a financial saving from buying the Variax and the buying Workbench separately at about £80. So it looks to me like whoever updates the inventory and website have made a mistake and assumed that because the old Variax did not include Workbench that the same goes for the JTV and therefore they can also offer the JTV+Workbench bundle deal. They are wrong and this should be corrected.
I am concerned for any new purchasers who are not aware that the JTV includes Workbench and who may decide to purchase the bundle at the £50 higher price - when in fact they don't need to do that.
Please can Line6 contact DV247 and point out this error?

Pleased to report that DV247 are no longer advertising JTV+Workbench bundles for £50 more and are just advertising the standard JTV models.
Thanks for sorting that out Line6! Well done!
