This Guitar is Ex-Demo, in excellent condition, showing no signs of wear or marks.

In very short supply in the UK, this is an excellent chance to add a USA-made James Tyler to your collection! Made at the James Tyler custom shop, using the highest quality Tonewoods, Hardware and HD modelling Technology from Line 6, This guitar is a one-stop shop to modelling some of the most sought after guitars in the world, from 1958 Les Pauls, 360/6 and 360/12 Rickenbackers, Martin Acoustic Guitars and many more!  

As the founder of James Tyler Guitars, master luthier James Tyler has helped put an unprecedented array of tones in the hands of professional and enthusiast guitarists alike. Captivated by guitars at an early age, James Tyler opened his first repair shop in Reseda, California in 1980, and quickly gained high-profile fans including Michael Landau, Neil Stubenhaus, Buzz Feiten and many more. The following decades brought a collection of stunningly creative guitars and basses, outrageous finishes, lauded pickups and a growing roster of loyal artists. Every project reflected his lifelong quest to create the perfect guitar and electronics package to deliver amazing tone—which made him the ideal partner for James Tyler Variax guitars.

Featuring innovative Variax HD technology, James Tyler® Variax® gives you powerful versatility to create the instrument you’ve always wanted, and energize your playing in exciting new ways. Choose from an impressive collection of classic guitar models—each with exceptional detail, feel and response. Dial up vintage electrics, rare acoustics, eclectic instruments and more. And with the turn of a knob, instantly access alternate tunings—including Open G, DADGAD, Drop D, or any other custom tuning.


Looking for far-out tone? The only question is how far you want to go. From Nashville country to the sound of the Indian subcontinent, inspire your playing with breathtaking acoustics and eclectics. Thanks to Variax HD technology, you can dial up resonator, sitar, banjo and tricone in an instant. From the subtle nuances of string vibration through the soundboard to the tonewoods of the guitar body, Variax captures the tone of professionally miked instruments in stunning detail. Plus, recording pristine acoustic takes has never been easier. You don’t have to worry about setting up mics, preamps and EQ—or that barking dog next door.


Focus on your performance, not your tuner.

With the ability to instantly switch between a range of alternate tunings, you can forget about your tuner and stay in the creative zone. Each guitar in the Variax family provides immediate access to 11 alt tunings, so you can focus on the moment instead of spending quality time with your tuner. You can mix and match any tuning with any instrument—and also create your own tunings on the fly with Virtual Capo. It’s easy to save your custom tunings, either to the open Model slot on the Alt Tune knob, or to one of the other alternate tuning slots.



Amazing playability and sound.

What makes James Tyler Variax guitars so addictively playable? James Tyler has made a career of understanding what makes vintage instruments so phenomenal, and applied this expertise to the James Tyler Variax guitar series. Knowing that the components of a guitar have an impact on feel and durability as well as tone, Tyler chose only the best neck, pickups, bridge, nut and tuners. Thanks to these premium components, James Tyler Variax guitars sound and play as good as they look.



Designed for amazing tone.

From smooth single coils to humbuckers hot enough to set off the smoke alarm, James Tyler Variax guitars are equipped with the highest-quality pickups—custom wound to James Tyler’s specs. Each model in the James Tyler Variax family comes with uniquely voiced pickup configurations dialed in by Tyler himself to offer a contemporary take on classic tone, so you can pick the style perfectly suited to your playing.



We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
