Ok, I'll start:

 

1) Sleep mode to save battery power on the JTV-89 -or anything that prevents unplugging to disconnect

2) Replace either the dobro, tricone, or Martin O-18 or _____ with a great sounding nylon string guitar

 

Your turn-

Hi everyone...
I strongly agree with the nylon strings (maybe a nylon strung acoustic... would be a real dream). 
On the electric side, I'd really appreciate a PRS model. I know they can't really be considered as "historic" as a 59 Strat or LP, but they are great sounding guitars IMO. So, why not complete the whole range of axes with one? (maybe only as one of the options on the WBHD).

 

Just my 2 cents from Italy.

A Gibson SG-61 would also be a nice addition.

Are you sure that there isn't a sleep mode on the 89. I don't know why there wouldn't be. It's on all the other models. The thing is that even in the sleep mode, the battery can drain pretty quickly. It's still drawing power, just at a slightly slower rate. It's really just meant to be something you use during a gig between sets. Even then, though, I usually will unplug mine. It's not really a big deal to pull the cable out. Then you know the guitar is really off.

There's no indication of a sleep mode in the 89 manual but if it's still drawing power, then its of little use to me.  I would like a "kill switch" program that would be the equivalent of unplugging.  I rehearse daily and unplugging every time I take a break or get a phone call means I have to turn the amp down too.

i just use the pod... no use for batteries at all... perhaps that doesn't fit into your ideal... but it is a solution available to anyone.

There is a Variax power kit that may be the ticket for you.  No batteries, and no POD, necessary

Thanks.  I ordered one from Sweetwater when I got the guitar and they are on back-order with no ETA.  I couldn't find another online store that carried it.

How about a model (or 2+) or the Brian May Red Special?

I like the nylon for the 89.  There's some black metal bands that dip a little bit into that for a sorta classical feel.  The dobro and banjo are useless to me.  The PRS would be aesome.  I had some some PRS stuff for variax but I don't know where the hell I found them or where they are now (I'm a variax newb so I'm still sorta lost)

I bet you could not remove one single model from the standard set without huge complaints ;)

 

My suggestion would be to make each model (old and any new ones) available as a "package" and make a utility where the user could compile any combination of models for downloading to the guitar (within the DSP limits). Or maybe, new body types and microphones as I guess thats how the internal structure works.

You're right, I think this is quite easy : just add models / pickups to Workbench, and let the user choose the models they want in their Variax. 

Line 6 don't need to change anything to the default models (preventing complaints ^^). Like they did for the "high gain" models in the last update : the custom 1 bank on the 89 reverted to the factory defaults and the user can load again the high gain models, on any slot they want through Workbench.

 

For the "power down" feature, I thought that if you set the volume to 0, it shuts down the Variax.

And if you disable the modelling it drains the battery ? I didn't notice that, the battery is always in my guitar and I didn't notice a loss of power if I don't use the modelling.

Else, the solution right now is to power the Variax with a VDI cable...

I would like the 12 string electrics to work with the guitar physically tuned down to D with no crazy pitch error glitches.

Same for 12 string acoustics!

Hadn't tried the acoustic 12s yet, but... that really sucks. This means I will have to go back to 1.9 til there is a fix as I use the acoustic 12s a bunch (have never used the Rick 12s as they didn't sound good at all to me before but the HD versions sound great and I would likely use them a lot if the pitch issue were fixed).

 

What about the new feature that lets you use any of the guitars as 12 strings? Does this give you the same crazy pitch glitching errors as the Rick and acoustic12s?

I haven't tried it on any other models in WB yet.  I submitted a ticket on this flaw (feel free to do the same!).  Let's keep our fingers crossed.
