I had issues out of the box with mine, but it involved 1.71 (or 1.72 forget which)
anyway, i had to downgrade the flash telling it to save nothing... once i got the lower flash working problem free, i was able to upgrade problem free.
basically reflashing will likely fix yours from the sounds of it, just not sure what the magic order of things will be....
I think it was a problem with the 1.70 factory firmware that lingers... but thats just my guess.

I'm not sure you can go any lower than the 1.7x, because those were pre-james tyler firmwares....
don't know one way or the other if they work.. just throwing that out as a word of caution.

As Zap said, make sure you let it overwrite all your settings when flashing. Sometimes the saving of the existing models and writing them back can get in the way of a good clean reflash.

Well I've tried reflashing the guitar, and I'm now back at the 1.82 firmware. However, the problem with workbench is still there. I've tried everything I can think of, including reinstalling every part of line6 software, but the problem persists.
It seems that any model created or modified in workbench sounds infinitely worse than the ones on the guitar. It is really annoying because it limits me to the models that came to the guitar and doesn't allow me to overwrite the stock banks without a big compromise in sound. This is most noticeable in the more sparkly models, like Spank and T-Model, where the models from workbench sound much darker and with no brilliance at all. In fact, a Spank5 model from Workbench sounds almost like a low-output humbucker...
Also, the string balance is really weird in my guitar. The Spank and T-Model banks have really low output on the bottom 3 strings while the top 3 are very loud. It's really awkward to be playing on the D string and when i pick the G, it almost scares the audiance. On the other hand, the Lester, Semi and Jazzbox banks have almost no sound on the bottom strings, so when playing jazz tunes with chord-melody, the root of the chords is not even audible. I could use the string volume option in Workbench, but not only that would screw up the models that are actually balanced, there is the problem of losing sound quality mention above...
Is anyone else experiencing these problems with Workbench sucking out your tone or the string volumes being off?
