Yes they are.
In fact the HD acoustic models were introduced with fw 1.81. So, fw 1.9 has the same acoustic models as fw 2.0 and fw 2.1
All the other guitar models were replaced and updated with v2.0 - so they are different. Also, the underlying modelling engine was updated between v1.9 and v2.0, so that will have made a subtle difference to how the acoustic models are reproduced beween v1.9 and v2.0 - but they are the same models.
You can look through the release notes for each fw release to corroborate the information on the models.

Hi edstar thanks for the reply. When i went from fw 1.9 - fw 2.0 i noticed a big difference in sound i thought, but if you say acoustic models havent changed are my ears decieving me?. i only use jtv 69 in digital mode for acoustic only.
Acoustic models haven't changed but the underlying processing engine has changed from pre-HD to HD - so it will process the models differently and they should be more authentic. I would have thought the change would be subtle but it depends on how you have your acoustic patches set up and how you are monitoring them - perhaps your combination of tweaks and monitoring just happens to highlight the differences so they sound very different to you. That's pure conjecture on my part.
I can only confirm the facts which are that the 5 acoustic guitar models were modified to HD with v1.81 and have not changed since. But with v2.0 the modelling engine changed to HD and so did all the other guitar models.

Hi edstar thanks again for that info, yeh acoustics go straight to the pa via the line 6 a/b power supply box that i got with my first line 6 600 variax, it works with the jtv variax also via a stereo cable.Maybe i didnt give my ears time to adjust, like you do when you get a new guitar or amp and the first thing you do, is to try and get it to sound like the old one lol. thanks again.......
