Free v1.9 Update Now Available for James Tyler Variax Guitars

Line 6 is pleased to announce the availability of v1.9 firmware for James Tyler® Variax® guitars. This free release offers enhanced palm muting for all guitars and introduces five new high-gain models exclusively for JTV-89.

Enhanced Palm Muting
V1.9 firmware greatly improves the experience of palm muting with James Tyler Variax guitars. While a wide variety of musicians will appreciate this feature, it’s especially handy for those who play aggressive, higher-gain styles.

JTV-89 now features five brand-new high-gain models perfect for delivering blistering leads and down-tuned power chords. Each model is based on a different pickup position, and delivers high-gain guitar tone while allowing you to access drop tunings, custom Dream Rig configurations and other James Tyler Variax magic.

Faster Update Speed
Installing v1.9 firmware is easy, and it loads much faster than previous updates.
