  1. I have to realize?!?!?!?! Are you serious?


    I've been saying the same friggin' thing...repeatedly...since the discussion began:


    #1: Variety of causes

    #2: Varying degrees of severity

    #3: User-specific tone/technique/etc that either amplifies OR masks, a problem guitar. ...

    #1: Not variety of causes, but various factors that affect the single cause. This cause is known.

    #2: Yes.

    #3: Yes.

    psarkissian has just posted a reply to a topic that you have subscribed to titled "Do You Have The Same Problem With 6th String?".

    "What you will get is a 4-6 week turnaround time for them to say "no problem found"---

    Our records show the last time the guitar was here, was more like a 6-day turn around time,

    not 4-6 weeks. Not sure which service center did 4-6 weeks.

    I just remind - my guitar spent in service center in Netherlands 11 weeks.

  3. Hello, I am writing late, but hopefully it will be helpful for someone.
    This AUX works only with the headphone output. (It does not work with LINE OUT).

    OUTPUT LEVEL does not affect the input volume AUX IN.
    AUX IN jack also functions as a stereo output.

    If you do not drill a hole in POD 2.0 can alternatively use a MIDI socket (see figure).







  4.  Caleb Elling from L.R.Baggs:

    "I am sorry to say that, despite Line 6's write-up in the blog link above, that "clink tone" is a naturally occurring artifact of Piezo bridge pickups, no matter the circuitry or Piezo design. LR Baggs and Line 6 worked very hard to try and reduce that effect for the new JTV design, but there is only so much you can do to limit the bridge's natural reaction to the string, without altering the movement, tone and sustain of the string.

    In the case with the JTV, the "clink tone" can be made to sound much more obvious, depending on the modeling settings used and the way it is played (which sounds to me like your situation). However, using high-gain amp settings is an almost certain way to make that sound occur. After watching your video, the "clink" is very obvious, especially on the Strat and LP settings. Most Piezo bridges are used for an acoustic tone only, and not for high-gain. So that "clink tone" is significantly less prominent.

    There are things you can do to reduce that effect, just as many people have mentioned on the Line 6 support forum. However, the "clink tone" is a natural side-effect of that kind of pickup."


    "What I can say, is that the "clank tone" as it is commonly defined, is, in fact, part of every Piezo bridge pickup. Some players may not notice it, while others may find it unusable. It is there though.

    The greatest potential that I have seen for a fix is to add a small level of dampening under the string, being careful not to disrupt the grounding of the string against the saddle. As you said, the solution is very difficult. But since I am not a Line 6 software engineer, that is the only actual advice I can give."



  5. If you get a plink with an unconnected guitar, it is a mechanical setup issue.  Find what is loose and moving. 



    This kinda torpedos your argument. If it sounds funky with mag pickups, then it's hard to blame piezo or software...

    Not. I hear the same thing on all my guitars: JTV-59, Fender Stratocaster (USA made), Aria Pro II - Magna series and nameless acoustic guitar.

    The cause is always the same - longitudinal waves. JTV solutions - modification of the bridge or edit firmware.

  6. My opinion:
    1. Plink is a normal phenomenon occurring on all strings. The most striking is usually on the string A5. Due to the oscillation direction (longitudinally) is not audible with the magnetic pickups.

    2. Piezos / bridge on JTV have the ability attenuate this wave. However, this does not work reliably.

    3. If this occurs on the string A5 - no trouble - plink is removed in electronics.

    4. If this occurs on the string E6, the electronics doing nothing - we have the problem.


    If is the piezo E6 connected to the A5 input - plink is removed in electronics.
    If is the piezo A5 connected to the E6 input, it is hear the normal plink of string A5 (not always - sometimes is muted in the piezo).

  7. MiroslavKloud reported that his JTV59 was with Line6 tech support for months and if I remember correctly, they did replace many parts, however, not sure if they actually replaced the piezo's or complete bridge or not.   Would be interesting to hear from MiroslavKloud whether his guitar did get new piezo's or not as that would provide evidence one way or another.

    1. Replacement of piezo - repair shop of the dealer.

    2. Replacement the whole bridge - but from other guitar, which also had plink - useless.

    3. 11 weeks in the Netherlands - supposedly exchanged the electronics.

    4. I had to replace the piezo again - torn off wire

  8. Inasmuch that flaw was the same, we were not able to make a comparison test to determine the cause (bridge, elektronics). So I showed him the details of the defects and the way I was doing all the measurements. One strangeness - I had earlier on a string A5 strong plink, was measurable at the input the electronics. Now completely disappeared.


    His reaction was not significant. He just heard and acknowledged that it is the same problem. We tested the guitars only with POD HD500 + RCF ART 310A. Plink was recognizable even without any editing of sound - no amp model, no effect - only amplification. He promised that will continue negotiations with several people. He is a helpful fellow.


    I have also currently open support ticket and I can write that I am now slightly optimistic.
