  1. I've hardly used this amp. And when I did, I've almost always used passive pickups. Sounds like a poorly engineered input circuit to me. The amp was manufactured on 12/12/2011. When I think of an "older" amp, I think of my 1974 Fender Vibro-Champ, not one that is less than 8 years old. EMG has been making active pickups since 1981. I'm not sure why it takes more than 30 years to catch up with that technology. Especially from a company that builds equipment that is marketed to be technologically advanced. There are many reasons why I was unimpressed with this amplifier to begin with, so it sat for a long time until I was offered a trade for it along with the FBV Shortboard MKII. I'm no longer unimpressed. Now I am extremely dissatisfied. No more Line 6 products for me. Thank you for your time.
  2. Thank for the response. Interesting thing: I've had the amp for many years, about two months after its release. I'ts never had a problem with EMG pickups until recently. Could something have changed with the amp?
  3. I have a Spider IV combo that is having a problem taking a signal from multiple EMG equipped guitars. It sounds great with passive pups, but has a severe loss of gain and has a tremolo sounding effect coming through on the higher gain settings. It sounds fine clean. I've already tried changing the batteries, factory reset it and updated the software. I haven't used this amp in a few years. It used to sound decent with about any guitar. Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong?
