  1. I find that in my cover bands I have to switch between slide playing and "normal" playing quite a bit these days. Is there a device that I can use on my JTV-69s that will allow me to temporarily raise the action when I need to play slide and set it back when playing "normal". The action for "normal" playing is a bit too low for slide playing. I am constantly fretting out and it is particularly annoying when using the resonator models. I have the "normal" action set higher than I normally prefer (factory setup) but it is still too low to handle the pressure of the slide (Dunlop Pyrex) without fretting out. I know that Dunlop makes a capo/slide converter but that would mean setting up additional alternate tunings for slide in standard and all open tunings due to the loss of at least the first fret. Any suggestions?
  2. Update: I used the "Shoe Goo" on the knob and so far t has held strong. Did a two hour sound check and the knob is still intact. Also, the excellent support team from Line 6 is sending a replacement knob. Line 6 has been very responsive and helpful!
  3. I submitted a support ticket and hopefully I can get a new knob. Meanwhile, I have some Shoe Goo so I'll give that a try for now. Thanks for the response.
  4. I have a JTV-69S that is about a month and a half old. I was cleaning off after a big outdoor festival gig this weekend and the silver top of the selector knob just fell off! There doesn't appear to be any way to snap it back onto the knob. Does any one know if this part was glued in? I would like to do a simple repair on my own if that's possible. I have 4 gigs this next week and I can't really afford the downtime to send the guitar in for warranty repairs. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
