  1. Yes. He just replaced the piezo on the D string. I think I had to wait a couple of weeks to get in as they didn't have them in stock.
  2. Lol! Just ran across this thread 7 years later. Anyway, it turned out that the piezo for the D string was bad. I drove to the po-dunk town 100 miles away and dropped the guitar off at the repair center. I'd barely started on my lunch when the tech called me to tell me he had it fixed already. Haven't had any issues with it since then.
  3. BTW I just dug up my receipt and checked the warranty. It turns out that I picked this up just before last Christmas (2013) and the warranty is good for 12 months on these things. The bad news is that if I need one, there is no service center in this city. There are several in a few po-dunk towns over 100 miles away though. I hope a piece of crud gets dislodged when I blow it out, and I don't have to make a road trip for this. It's tempting, but I probably shouldn't start replacing piezos myself while its still under warranty.
  4. No, the D string is at the same level as the other strings when using the magentic pickups. Thanks.
  5. Thanks Silverhead. I meant to remove the string again and blow it out last night but I got sidetracked. Maybe tonight..
  6. Afternoon all; I have a fairly new JTV-89F that has a D string that is much quieter than the other strings. All the strings ring out clearly via the magnetic pickups, but the D string is considerably quieter than the rest through the piezo. The problem exists whether I'm connected via the Line 6 digital interface cable or via a regular 1/4 inch jack. I have verified the issue is also present on two different rigs. Firstly on an old Marshall VS65R amp with no pedals, and also on my new Line 6 DT50 with an HD500. I have tried changing the strings and reseating them several times without any sucess. I have also upgraded to all the latest revisions of the Line 6 Monkey and all of the other associated software/firmware/drivers. I believe doing so does the equivalent of a factory reset on the guitar. I found a settings box in the workbench software that appears to show the individual string gain, and they were all set to 0 dB too. I can't imagine how the settings would have been anything other than the defaults, since I really haven't had a lot of time to dink around with this gear since I got it. Any ideas what I can try to get my D string to normal? Thanks.
