Hello all,

 

My JTV-69 fell down and broke off a tuner. :-(  I have a few questions:

1. Can I can get a replacement Line 6 JTV-69 tuner assembly (i.e., just one)?  Is there a part number and store that anybody can recommend?

2. If not, do any of you have recommendations for a good replacement brand/model?  I've been told that Gotohs are good.  Is there a model that works well for JTV-69?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

++Rajesh

If you can't get a single replacement, get a set of Sperzel machines. Great locking tuners, I have them on several guitars.

Seems like there must be a way to buy just one replacement tuner somewhere.

Nope.  The OEM tuners have a large knob on the rear to tighten the string lock.  I see no locking tuners on that page.

The JTV69 has locking tuners.  I don't know who makes them but they work just fine.  I'm surprised that there is no source of single replacement tuners.

you could always use it as a chance to upgrade...

the USA models use hipshot tuners, i don't think that the holes line-up on those though....

 

i upgraded my older variax to planet wave autotrims... very easy upgrade.

I too upgraded my 500 to planet wave autotrim locking tuners.  I really like them and they were reasonably priced.  The set made for strat necks should work here.  My 500 had a 3 on a side headstock.  They should be drop in replacements.

The Planet Waves autotrims will also work on the JTV-89 and 89F. Drop in replacements with a better mechanism and autotrim is much more convenient.

that's what i'd do!
