Hi I'm pretty new here. After doing tons of research and viewing nearly every video out there on the subject, I took the plunge and got the dream rig. Initially I started with the DT25 head and 1x12 cab, HD500x, and a red JTV69. I was able to get some great initial tones with it but obviously it was going to take some learning to really get the most out of the rig. However, it became clear that my pre-purchase research was a bit incomplete because I wasn't prepared for the acoustic tones I was getting via the DT25. Some quick reading and, duh, found the problem about trying to emulate acoustic sounds through an amp designed to give electric guitar tones. So I ended up getting the L2T the next day...Best decision I could've made....awesome tones that are amazingly realistic. So I'm planning on programming the HD500x into a few set lists depending on whether I'm using the whole rig live, going only into the L2T for acoustic and electric patches, or going direct to a PA with no on stage amplification.
Question about the JTV action. According to Sweetwater, they did some kind of multi point inspection regarding things like action (or so I thought). Anyway, it might just be a personal preference, but the action out of the box seemed a bit high. Then again, I'm used to playing with low action on 9s. So the 10s definitely gave me a bit of a workout the first few times. I started to set it up more to my liking and so far so good.
Has anyone tried 9s on the JTV? I'm thinking of trying it out just to see but figured I'd ask if anyone has done it before.
