I was wondering if we are ever going to hear an acoustic nylon string model for the JTV's.  I heard one on a Fender VG strat.  It sounds ok but I think Line 6 can do a better sounding model than that.

We had Nylon guitar from Line 6 on the Variax 700 Acoustic. It was pretty good. So. clearly Line 6 knows how to do that, and have already done it. But your guess is as good as mine if they will offer it again. If you are into samples, the EMU nylon guitar samples are teriffic. I used to play them thru midi that I used with the Roland VG88.

Emu made samplers/keyboards. Recently they have packaged all their software to be used by computer (software samplers). Anyway, if you have a guitar that triggers midi signals (say a Roland Hex PU into one of the VG units- you can trigger really any midi keyboard or sampler). This way you could conceivably get the sound of any instrument on earth (including nylon guitars) from the comfort of your favorite electric guitar.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
