Jtv V2 Models Png Poster

Recommended Posts

I put this image together based on the old Variax models poster that I (and I think others) like to use. If there are any errors/corrections/requested changes, please post them here. Cheers, David.

That would be great, David --- except I can't see the poster. Did the attachment process somehow get messed up?

Man, you're quick Silverhead. First time I forgot to press the final "attach this file button". It's attached properly now.

Just to let people know who've already downloaded it, the original version had a white hole in the middle of one of the strats. I've replaced the image with this fixed if you care to download it again.

The guitars are upside down so that the positions of the pickup switches in the top row of the diagram correspond visually to the guitar's orientation. In other words, the leftmost pickup position as you are looking at (and holding) the guitar corresponds to the neck pickup.

Nice poster but according to the info on the variax HD page:

 

Spank and Lester are 1959

Both Rickenbackers are '66 370

Casino is '64

Jazz box is '54 with P90 pickups

Martin D28/12 is '70

Martin D28 is '59

The Danelectro becomes 1999 Jerry Jones Shorthorn

Hi jeff,

 

It's quite a bit of work, so perhaps somebody else could do it. The reason it's done this way is that the original Variax sheet was done this way, so there was less to change. When I first saw the Variax one it seemed odd to me too, but I definitely got used to it so that now it looks quite normal. One of the great advantages to doing it this way is that most of us are right-handed. That means that the neck is going to the left when I'm holding the guitar: Just like in the pictures. Therefore, I can look at the picture, and instanly know where to put the pickup selector. With all the guitars turned around, the pickup selector wouldn't match the orientation of the guitar, unless we also swapped the left-to-right order of the guitars but if we did that, I'd have to rotate the image in my mind every time I was trying to set the selector switch correctly.

 

I don't know if that made sense, but hopefully. :)

 

Cheers,

 

David.

Sure that makes perfect sense. Just thought I'd ask. I still have the old one in an excel spreadsheet Maybe I can do it if I can find jpegs of the guitars...  Thanks :)

when the sheet is layed on the table in front of you... you are looking at the guitars upside down... which in turn becomes the right way... as if you were holding it

and the switch is also the right way then... it only looks wrong when viewing it upright of mounted to a wall...

I have made my own poster for jtv-59 users since the pickup selection switch also involves pushing the tone knob. Enjoy.

Thanks, derums. Very helpful.

 

A suggestion:

 

I think the numbering of the pickup positions should be reversed. The JTV numbering uses Position 1 for the Bridge position and then going to Position 5 for the Neck position. The image of the pickup selector switch in your chart is correct, given the player's top-side view of the switch; the numbers should be reversed. In other words, the left-most column header should show number 5, with the image showing the switch pointing up to the top - the Low-E string side - of the guitar. The right-most column header should show number 1, with the image showing the switch pointing down to the bottom - the High-E string side - of the guitar.

 

What do you think?
