JTV-89F - Is it worth getting?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I currently have a JTV-89 which I have had for a few years and love.

A deal has come up on a JTV-89F which I am looking at but I have never used one.

In your opinion, if you already have a JTV-89, is it worth getting a JTV-89F with the licensed Floyd Rose Trem? 

 

Thanks.

To me, YES.

I feel the great thing about any Variax is it's versatility.

It can emulate many different guitars.

Some of the guitars it emulates have a tremelo, so I feel a Variax should have one as well.

Of course if you never intend to use a tremelo that's fine, you won't miss it.

Personally I think the 59 is the most beautifull and I was inclined to buy one because the 89 doesn't have a tremelo anyways.

My goto guitar is a Ibanez RG with tremelo so as a model the 89 did appeal to me, just missing the tremelo didn't make any sense to me.

Good thing I waited and the 89F came out.

I bought it and I can tell you the Graphtek tremelo is very well built and functions great!

I just got a 89f, and I'm suprised over how well the floyd works with the modeled guitars. I can divebomb quite low before the strings lose contact with the piezos.

yes, buy it if you can afford it.....lots of cool stuff can be done when playing the accoustic modeling alone.....get creative with the other model packs.....it enhances your expression....

I purchased one as soon as they were available (89F) and it is definitely my favorite guitar now (I have a 59 also), plays and sounds fantastic.

I picked up one about two years ago.

Picked up my second in January of this year.

My checkbook vote says "Yes, they're worth it."

 

However.

 

I would be much happier if Line 6 had more than just the two "colors." I have way too many black guitars and since "blood red" is the only other option, I have two of them.
