it was probably just due to demand... they haven't made those in a long time...
they would have released a new one around the time of the x3 many years back if the demand was there.

The FBV was really made specifically for the Vetta series amplifiers 10 years ago... we no longer make the Vetta amps.
The FBV Shortboard (MKII) ended up being more of a universal (you can connect it to Spider III, IV, Spider Valve, PODxt, POD X3, POD HD units) controller where the number of switches wouldn't exceed any of those devices' onboard parameters that were relevant for bypass control.
If you look on an older FBV controller... there are switches that really only pertain to the Vetta amp. Favorite Channel, Stomp 1, 2 and 3, etc. these don't really exist in any of the current Line 6 units.
Then again, if you really feel strongly about the FBV... please let our Product Dev team know about your perspective directly via this page: http://line6.com/company/contact/productfeedback/
