I recently purchased a used JTV-59. Of course it came with no battery charger or usb interface. After learning that the XTLive doesn't charge the battery, I googled a replacement charger. A user on one of these forums noted that the battery was similar to a Sony Handycam battery, model # NP-F570 camera.

I just picked a charger up at the local batteries plus yesterday for $30. In stock and works great!

Also available much cheaper on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co...np-f570 charger    (I didn't wanna wait)


Now, does anyone know if a generic Ethernet-to-USB adapter will work as a replacement for the USB interface?

If you modify the guitar to connect the + and - battery terminals to ground and ring of the 1/4" jack (instead of the internal PCB) I have to believe that any physically compatible 7V battery will work.  The OEM arrangement uses a digital handshake with the battery to ensure you have a gen-u-ine Line 6 battery, but since the guitar will power from 7V DC on the cable it ought to run from battery there as well.


Disclaimer: I have not tried this and do not intend to since my Line 6 batteries still hold a charge and I'll be moving to an XPS mini soon.
