What exactly made Line 6 think that the owners of other guitars did not want high gain models?
fail, guys. serious fail.
It's modeling - there is no reason we can't have it too.
I will be reporting on the new palm muting, as I have been a major critic of this in the past and see this as a welcome update.
There is a suggestion here that the high-gain models may be made available for all JTV guitars.
As you wrote, the initial release only supports the 89's.
Palm muting was one of the issues that led me to send my 89 back at the end of October. It's encouraging that Line 6 has been working on this issue.
