Currently Being ModeratedFeb 20, 2011 2:57 PM (in response to spiderjohn)Re: Why are Line 6 management so quiet at the moment
Read through some of the discussion threads to find out what is happening. In summary:
-- Last summer, both Line 6 and James Tyler did not like the quality of the first pre-production prototypes. Line 6 made some changes to part suppliers, and the higher quality parts have now been reflected in the price.
-- The first batch of a "few hundred" JTVs shipped in the U.S. one month ago, the second batch is starting to ship currently
-- The first batch of JTVs shipped to Europe are undergoing their final setup. This process started a week ago.
-- There was a problem discovered with some of the JTV-59s in the first U.S. batch -- a faulty 3-way selector switch. Line 6 redesigned the part so all new JTVs (including the first European batch) have the new 3-way switch
-- There is a significant backlog of pre-orders that have not yet been filled. Some delivery dates have now been pushed out a few months
