Piezo has gone bad on JTV-59
by sesmls2 on 2011-04-16 20:01:21

Looks like my JTV-59 will be headed back to Line 6 yet again.  It's been fairly reliable since the fix of the pickup switch and the ground hum, but today I noticed a distinct "click" when bending the B string upwards, which quickly turned into a complete dropout of sound whenever the string is bent more than about a 1/2 step.

I love this guitar, but wish I was able to count on it.  My band covers a lot of '60s and '70s hits, and the virtual capo/alternate tunings have been a godsend, eliminating guitar changes, but looks like next Friday's gig I'll be back to carrying four guitars with me.

Very frustrating.
