Makes me glad I snagged my JTV59 when it was on sale!
I am not 100% certain on this-
but I believe the JTV59-P90 version only comes in two finish options: Gold top and Black?
One other minor oddity, which I didn't really pay complete attention to until I re-read the manual last night, is the pickup selection switch - which in terms of accessing the JTV models is relevant.
On the JTV59, the pickup select switch is a THREE WAY toggle.
On the JTV69, it is a FIVE WAY toggle.
On the JTV59, to allow you access to all the options per model, you have to press down the "alternate tuning" knob. The configurations then shift.
Knob not pressed = 1, 3, 5
Knob pressed = 2 , 3, 4
SO, when in the center position on a JTV59, you always get pickup / guitar model choice #3.
With the button in (turns blue), you get options 2 and 4 on the outside switch positions.
WIth the button up (turns white) you get options 1 and 5 on the outside switch positions.
One last thing, on the JTV69 - the suffix "S" stands for single coil. For instance, Zzounds has "shoreline gold" and "black" JTV69S, new, for $999 right now- but the other finish options on same guitar cost more:
It looks like they also have the JTV69 on sale right now too, in all (except for blue) finish options for $999.
Including the three-tone sunburst.
You will notice in the photos, that the JTV69 has a humbucker in the bridge position, where the JTV69S has a standard strat-style single coil in the bridge slot.
Going down the JTV69 road, you will find some info on the forums from people who have looked into replacing the JTV69 neck with an actual Fender strat neck, just in terms of options, a cool idea!
