New JTV-89 with Floyd Rose Trem in the Pipeline
by kmulvihill on 2012-10-02 01:38:47.4500

I'm sure you've seen the new JTV59 and 69 guitars and might be wondering about the so-far left out JTV-89. Since I'm ready to buy an 89, I called Line 6 and spoke to someone who told me a JTV-89 with a Floyd Rose is in the pipeline, although this person didn't have any info on release date. I was also told this wasn't priviliged information - which also tells me the release should be imminent. I'm waiting to see the new model before I place my order but it sure would be nice to have a Floyd Rose. I'm just posting here in case others are wondering if there will be a new 89 - sure would be a shame to order one and then have the new model come out the next week...

That's great news. I've been trying to decide whether to custom build my own guitar, or modivy one with a Ghost system so i can get acoustic sounds, etc - but if Line6 do finally pull a 89FR out of the bag i think i know exactly where my money will go.

As i have a HD500 too i can see this becoming my new live rig

GAS - i just cant help myself

I'm hearin' ya brother. I desperately need that guitar and sure would like to take advantage of the rebate too as I expect costs to go up. We need to start calling that JTV line to get an update. I've already called and left a message and nobody called me back. C'mon, Line 6 - put the 89FR out there so we can order it now for Christmas and get the rebate - even if we don't receive it until sometime next year. C'mon! It's Christmastime!
