I've yet again received a faulty JTV59 (stuck push-switch on the model selector). A previous guitar with a dead variax-circuit was written off as unrepairable by the L6 distributor. Repairing it should have been very simple with access to spares so this can only mean that even a L6-partner distributor is unable to get parts. Where does this leave a variax-owner once the warranty runs out? I'm hoping that someone with some insight into the L6 logistics-chain can contribute some information about the availability of spare-parts. Although I like the guitar when it works I see no point in hanging on to an instrument that can not be repaired (preferably by myself as with the rest of my guitar collection) in the future if necessary. I may ask for my money back instead of a repair/replacement this time.
