Fine Tuning on 12 String Models
by ncreed on 2013-03-04 09:45:37

I just received my new JTV-69 the other day. I was wondering if anyone has knows how to adjust the fine tuning on the twelve string models. They seem a tad bit extreme to me on some of the strings. I have tried to do it in workbench, but it tells me the tuning is set on the guitar and cannot be changed in workbench. I know you could adjust this on the old variax. I am running ver 1.82 as I haven't been able to install 1.9 yet. Thanks in advance.

You have to have the 12 string model loaded in workbench. If it's not a 12 string model, you cannot edit the 12 string settings. Make sure to flip to your 12 string on your guitar until it loads up in the editor, from there, there will be a box to the left of the fretboard that has fine tuning settings on the 12 strings.

When I click in the box to the left of the fretboard it says "12 string tuning is not available when using this body model.  I have tried it with all four twelve string models and it says the same thing on all of them.

Finally found it. The alt tune knob has to be on model to alter twelve string tuning. I had it on standard.

Yeah. put the pickup selector and model knob where the 12 string is, just as if you were trying to play a 12 string. It loads it up on the editor. Another way is to open the bank on the right of menu that says ACOUSTIC or CHIME and right-click "edit" on the 12 string presets.

They restrict 12 string settings to actual 12 string guitar bodies.
