I just ran across a little issue, and wanted to confirm my suspicions... I recently made a group of patches for our Chrismas services at church and a couple of them involved using the JTV magnetic pickups (for eBow use).  I set the input for these patches to "Variax Mags", made my tweaks, and saved the patch.  When I recalled the patches during a rehearsal, I noticed that the pickup selection was not what I had originally set.  Am I correct that when using the POD HD 500 with the JTV, it will default to the neck and bridge magnetic pickups both being on when changing to the patch?

I suspect the physical mag pickup switch setting determines the selection. I don't think the HD500 recognizes or stores the physical switch setting that was in place when the preset was saved. Whatever position the switch is in when you select the preset - I think that's what is used.


On the other hand, .... I haven't tested this so could well be wrong here......
