JTV-69 on American Idol
by phil_m on 2013-03-21 15:53:24

I don't usually watch the show, but I had the TV on last night while practicing, and I saw this performance. The JTV-69 was front and center. I don't know this dude's name or whether this is a US version or a Korean model.

I think I remember something about a band member of the AI house band endorsing the variax and HD500.  Or maybe that was the SLN guy.  I do remember seeing a variax on stage before in another season.

Cheers,

I saw it too (Just last night... I had the show recorded).
I did the same thing to show my wife. Paused it and was like... "Look, its a JTV-69, the strat version of my guitar".... She did not care either.


I jumped on the forums to share the news when I found this thread.

Your post made me laugh.
My wife did find your comment amusing also (of course I had to read it to her). Then I think she mumbeled something about me being a dork or something... LOL

I first noticed it by the selector switch at the top of the guitar.
Makes sense though... They have to cover a wide variety of sounds.
I thought I saw a variax last season as well, but I never could get a good view of it.

+1 for pausing and wife saying something like "whatever" ... me too

I have always thought that Line 6 gear - JTV and POD would be absolutely ideal for this sort of thing where the band plays any and all kinds of music.

I play both at church, which is a bit similar - works great.
