  1. Now the amazing Line6 team has just kicked out the massive 2.20fw/Workbench/Editor beast of an update. They should take a break from it and turn a bit of attention to a JTV/Shuriken firmware! .......Please. :rolleyes:

    to buy or not to buy?

    I totally agree with you on both points and to be honest, a lack of colour choice is a bit of a turn off in my opinion. I will most likely go down the fret dressing followed by the stainless re-fret route, the only trouble is that I am miles away from civilization in northern Spain and no one I know can recommend a decent, local within reason, luthier, so it's probably going to have to wait until my usual summer visit back home to England, unless by any chance there is someone on here who is from my neck of the woods (Asturias) who could throw me a line/name.

    3 Weeks Old And Mic Input On My Helix Rack Is Dead?

    I went through a similar scenario with mine using a Rode NT1 (no hot plugging involved). I opened a ticket and Line6 were extremely swift with the turn around. Trust me, you are in good hands. Hope you have the same experience with their CS, if not better. I have never played so much in my life after buying the Helix/JTV59 combo.....next on the list is an L3T then my wife and kids will never see me again.... unless they take up some kind of instument.

    Helix FW 2.20 (The "Get Low" Update) OUT NOW

    tmuka, same thing just happened to me and the wife nearly started rubbing her hands together with glee thinking she finally had my life insurance along with some long awaited peace and quiet close at hand. I think it was some kind of Line6 twisted sense of humour.

    I am the proud owner of a JTV59 and love it to bits but. after a year the frets are well worn. might need a back up before I am playing a fretless! I like the looks of this! What do you guys rekon to it?

    JTV gig bags

    I hope I don't offend OP by hijacking his post..... but could anyone confirm the gig bag that came with their Variax. I have just bought a JTV59 (2014) and was fully expecting the grey double pouch version, but it came with in black with a single exterior pouch. No big deal as I plan on getting a SKB56 hardcase to lug around (I personally don't fancy risking damaging a 900€ guitar in a 30€ gig bag), but just curious. Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes.

    It just fits into the vdi input to protect it.

    Mic input not working

    Rafa Kas is from my neck of the woods, Gijón I believe. Well, I opened a ticket on the Helix and was told to the contact service centre to get the previously pefectly functioning wahwah and wonky knob sorted. I truly don't want to be without the Helix again for another 10 days or so. Has anybody dared to lube their own? Fukuri have you got yours back?

    Line 6 Staff squeaky expression pedal answer?

    The first came with a broken exp light and dodgy wah (lightning strikes twice) and the second one came with faulty footswitches that were also suffering from the chrome actually peeling off them (never seen that before).

    Line 6 Staff squeaky expression pedal answer?

    It's a real pity about line6 QC. The products would be amazing if they didn't have so many problems related to quality issues. Last year I had two HD500X one after the other had faults from new so back they went. Then, when I heard about the new Helix I thought I would give Line6 another chance and got the JTV59 (faulty toggle switch/occasionally selects models at random) and the Helix, which as you know has its history. That's four different products,each one problematic. And when a product is "serviced" it comes back with two more added problems. All I get from opening a support ticket up is "contact your service centre"....equals....total loss of confidence in Line 6 products and customer service. Not a great advert for a supposedly serious professional company with Yamaha connections I would have hoped for better. Personally I can't honestly see me risking buying anything else by Line6 due to my experiences with them. Maybe I have been unlucky. You guys decide.

    Line 6 Staff squeaky expression pedal answer?

    Mine had a mic input issue, it was sent back to a service centre 500kms away and after a week or so it came back with a wonky phones knob and a wah pedal that sqeaks and clunks like hell. I opened a support ticket and was told to send it back to a service centre.... but I am concerned that will it come back with more issues as that was what happened the first time. Should I or should I not?
