Just a quickie. Are the high gain pickup models now available for all JTV's or is it still just the JTV 89?

Thanks

The body is called neutral, and the pick ups 89 Bridge and 89 neck.

Now if they are good, is matter of taste, To my ears yes.

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

Can someone do a dry comparison between an LP and the 89 pickups? Just wonder how different they sound.

Very awesome! Thank you so much. Seems the 89 is a bit brighter. I'd probably try to stick 89 pickups in a LP body to make an In Flames-esque metal patch. I'm not sure. It's times like this I want to have my hands on a JTV.

Welcome Clayman! Hey, I will try that and see what happens, I will upload a sound with a 89 PU in a LP and try it out!

Oh thank you! You didn't have to. Just thinking about stuff out loud. I know In Flames uses EMGs which are not exactly high gains but I'd say it's more close.

I wonder if they could model active pickups.

Yeah, big differences.  I definitely like the Les Paul bridge better.  I'd probably take the 89 with Les Paul bridge over the others.
