Happy New Jtv User

Recommended Posts

Well, I´ve to say that my JTV 89 came in so perfect shape that all the nerves I had because I´ve read so many horror stories went away in two minutes.

 

The neck is perfect. The action, much better than my Standard Stratocaster (USA). NO FRET buzz that I have noticed either. :D  Smooth from the neck to the bridge.

 

As for the sound..... Some models are so good that I don´t really think you would need those (physical) guitars anymore.

 

The Tele...... Love it!!!!!!!

 

The Stratocaster....... It´s sounds a bit different than mine, but after only two days, and comparing them in a recording environment, I have to say that the Variax  settles better in the mix. It sounds a bit more smoother, without having those peaks I hear in my strato (lows and highs) that are a bit piercing  to the ear.

 

I find it less microphonic as well and a more compressed, but not in a bad way. Honestly, I didn´t thought it was going to sound so good. :blink: 

 

About the cuack.... yes, I agree with others, in my opinion it´s to polite, should be more aggressive. Right now there´s no much difference between this ( 2 and 4) position and the others. 

 

The gibsons are stellar as well.

 

 

So far, the ones I think need more attention are twelve strings and acoustics.

 

 

 

My guitar came with 1.72 version, I upgraded to the latest without having listened to it with the actual firmware. Everything was right at first attempt .

 

 

Overall, I´m happier everyday I play this guitar, and when you connect it to Worckbench HD, then you loose any sense of time :D.... it´s so much fun that I forget to play anything concrete.

 

 

So, I hope to be around here for a long time and I can´t wait for the next generation (maybe in two years....), because for me, this is the future of guitar.

 

 

Thanks everybody for been so helpful all this time. I´ve learnt a lot reading this forum and it helped me to convince myself that I had to try one.

Congratulations..it is a fun instrument to play.

 

Experiment with changing the alt. tuning and let us know how that goes. I'm hoping it works perfectly!

My alt tuning works great but you have to play loud to avoid hearing the out of tune natural string vibration.  For standard tuning in different keys I prefer a capo.

Thanks!!!!! Still discovering new things and different combinations.

 

I´ve definitely changed the strat´s body for the parlor one. It brings more harmonic content out of the strat model, but still not comparable to my real Standard USA.

 

Nevertheless, As others have mentioned, I see this guitar as a broad palette of different "colors".

 

The sounds are, for the most part, very usable, though as I´m playing more and more, you feel that there´s room for improvement in the feeling and the most important thing: overtones.

 

Still a tad on the sterile side.

 

Having said this, I´m keeping mine for sure. Love it and when a new one comes in, I´ll be there. :D

 

Great forum!!!!!

 

Cheers!!!!!!

    Welcome to the Variax club FenderVariax! Glad you like your new AX! I recently got the 59, and I really love the guitar. Like you, I found it to be a really solid, well playing instrument. No problems with the fit & finish, intonation, neck & frets, everything was constructed well, set up and adjusted properly right out of the box. And as someone above said, it's a real sonic palette to work with - lots of good tones to be had, and a lot of adjustments available. More than I can wrap my head around yet.
