JTV-59 is built along the lines of the archetypal singlecut, set-neck, 24-9/16″ scale-length guitar and it employs the tonewoods that made the format legendary since the 1950s. Optimum playability is ensured by the smooth, rounded Tyler ’59 neck profile and comfortably contoured neck heel. The efficient tuners and James Tyler Custom stoptail bridge keep it all rock-solid and resonant. The alnico humbucking pickups are wound to James Tyler’s specs. They are inspired by classic PAFs but they feature a little extra punch in the bridge position.
JTV-59 guitars are carefully constructed to exacting standards at one of the world’s most respected guitar factories. Upon arrival at its region of sale, each instrument undergoes a high-quality, multi-point setup and inspection.
