Trying out Line 6 gear and JTVs in Brisbane - Australia
by sdd12122000 on 2013-01-26 05:38:25

Hi All,

The biggest music store in my part of the world went bust late last year.

They were also financially linked with he Australian Line 6 distributor I hear.

There seems to be stock in other states, but I can't track down any store stock (at all) in my state (Queensland) anywhere in any of the other smaller stores.

If another person tries to sell me a strat instead I'll scream.

I'm told that it's taking time to set up distribution channels again in Australia?

I've also never actually seen a variax of any description in any stores though either.

I'm after a JTV 59. Really keen and prepared to order from interstate.

However, I want to play one first.

Does anyone know anything about the state of the distributorship, or is local (Brisbane) and has one they are willing to let me see before I order?

Cheers.

Sounds like Line-6 distribution in Oz isn't a whole lot different from New England in the US.  I had to drive 500+ miles round trip to find a stocking dealer and bring home my JTV-69.

The nearest I've been able to find is 630 miles away. 1260 miles round trip. And they don't have the fnish I want.

That'a bit far to see how a guitar plays and then have to order one.

Hi mate,

I leave close to Lismore. Not Brisbane, but close enough if you are keen to give it a try. I also have an HD300 and a dt50 head/cab combo, so you can try them all together.

Cheers.

Thanks mate,

How did you go in the floods? All ok down there?

I will PM you when I can get down there.

It'll take 2.5 hours each way from here to Lismore, so I'll need a day on a weekend.

I'm already booked out with kid's activities this weekend.

Is that ok?

Cheers.

Hi there, I just ordered and received my JTV-59 and the new distributor in Australia is Australis Music in Sydney, who also bring in Ibanez. As of the week ending Feb 17, they had received shipment of a number of different models, both Korean and US manufactured. I rang them and they gave me a choice of stockists in Victoria. You can reach them on 02 9698 4444

Cheers

Craig
