Only one bum note dude but still sounded excellent. I have a little longer delay on my sound but each to their own. The tone is very good and pretty much what I am expecting from my live rig from now on. Line 6 have really delivered on this one I think. Thanks for sharing this.

Yep - thanks for catching the bum note
I am not at the end of that song - still practicing on my own without the Band. And the final preset therefore with my DT50/212 and another 2x12 cab will probably slightly different. It will depend on how I cut through the mix in the Band.
The delay is indeed short. The original version I think is completly without any delay, if I remember correctly. He did that with his awesome vibrato technique. His notes kept on singing and singing and singing ... But I will experiment with the delay time, once we start practicing the song at rehearsal. Thanks for the hint dude.

Sounded like it took a bit for you to get into it, but DANG did that sound good. Astounding playing.

Well, that's two nights gigging with the new Soldano using all three Pre models and frickin hell, what a good sound I have through my DT50 head and 4X12. Didn't take much dialing in really.
The secret weapon is using an MXR Distortion 3 before the Soldano crunch Pre model and an MXR 10 band EQ in the PodHD500's loop for solos (post pre amp), that is my sound. (no cab models). Plain and simple, just works. Gigs are going to be so much better and only waited 39 years for this.

Hey dude, that sounds good!
I still need to check the Soldano at rehearsal and gigs (in november) with pre amp models and on gig volume level (with DT50/212 and a Marshal 2x12). I mainly use the Screamer in front of my amp models for Crunch to Hi-Gain and sometimes an OD pedal for some Fenderish clean to crunch guitar tones to get a little sustain. But as conservativ as possible. I tend to use more the amps saturation.
The Soldano amp has the potential with its variety (clean to Hi-Gain and very responsive on guitar Volume-knob) to be an "universal weapon" for some of us.

The JTV59 is actually my Backup Guitar for Live-Performance. I am not playing this guitar that much at the moment. I am using mainly the JTV69.
After the recording was done, I have realized that the guitar is - especially in the slow passages - slightly out of tune. Although there are a few bum notes due to wrong playing, this intonation problem falls back to my style of playing and the very high Jumbo frets (height 1.1mm; width 2.8mm) on the JTV59 (it is not, because the guitar was not correctly tuned or adjusted):
I am a player which generates on specific songs a quite strong pressure through my fingers on the fretboard. Now I have checked the frets with my luthier and he confirms that the fret height of 1.4mm is the root cause for some sharp notes. I have made several recordings with guitars where the fret height is 1.1mm and I know these recordings are well intonated.
At the moment the luthier is going to make a fret dressing on my JTV59 down to a 1.1mm height. Once that is done, I will take another record.
Weird story, but at the end I am happy that I uncovered this through this recording.

I found the same thing with my JTV-59 - intonation problems due to extreme fret height. I am currently having my frets replaced - not dressed down. My luthier recommended replacement because he felt that the extent of dressing-down required would compromise performance of the frets (the fret tops could not be crowned properly). I should get it back mid-next week; can't wait to feel/hear the difference.

good to know that I am not the only one with this problem! Started to think that my ears are driving me grazy.
I would appreciate to know how your new frets are going to be.

After getting the JTV59 back from the luthier, some testings and band rehearshal, this is now a new recording AFTER the fret dressing which leads into a sharp-intonation.
Although there are still some bending errors, because I am still practicing that song, the #-intonation has been - at least to my ears - noticably reduced:

Hi dude, thanks for your feedback!
I am still practicing that song. It takes a lot of playing discipline for a decent performance.
The preset is just a headphone mix for the recording. For live performance with my DT50/212 the final preset will be different.
The Soldano is going to be a model I will check for other songs as well: very flexibel and most of all it has an acceptable Clean tone too. And the Soldano amp model is able to clean up very nicely with the guitar volume knob which is a necessity in that song.
All the best, wolbai.
