  1. 100% agree with you, that's the only way of proper purchase.
  2. Yeah, agree with you at all, in mix, and even in "middle" quality club room acoustic you can not feel the difference :) . And yea, my work til the last summer was half by half playing in cover band and studio recording-mixing-mastering. Now I quit play covers and all time spend in studio, maybe this is the reason its not enough for me now. I have custom strat and custom 2x humbucker guitar a-la Suhr(shape, etc), love to play on them all time, especially on strat. And I made this tele mod on strat (when you turn on neck in bridge position), so tasty sound :) Here is one of my video with this strat, it is not for comparison, just for fun, sorry for offtop, regards ! (But 89f is also there, so not a big offtop, lol)
  3. Of course, for everyones personal taste :) I was looking for kind of universal guitar, but single pickup models has no the same level of high frequencies, like low pass filter, humbucker models - I feel that sound has no this small nuances when you play with pick on them, kind of linear de-convolution character(and it might be a static convolution in general technology vision). And after you use some hi-gain(or middle gain) channels, this problems becomes only bigger. And of course I can not require a 100% similar sound from emulations, only for my studio workflow goals it is not enough similarity. Only Jumbo and Dobro acoustics are great (but sometimes I thinking to collect money and buy a real ones finally) Yeah, thanx ) I have 89f, so tape behind the saddles is not a solution unfortunately. As I said, when you connect 5th string saddle into channel for 6th string on motherboard - you have plinking on 5th string - problem is only electronical (in my case maybe, not everyone). PS. I was big fan of L6 products .. But now 89f is almost in corner, and I sold Helix, bought AX8, this is my todays subjective experience, regards ;)
  4. Yep .. this is kind of problem. But honestly, after long time of usage this guitar stays in corner 98% of time, onboard magnetic pickups has pure sound, tried to change them - no way .. And all Variax models sucks for my opinion, you intuitively want to jump onto magnetic .. except only acoustic models, they are the best if you need to record something quickly and not so important (without comparison with real things of course). So all time I use few of custom made guitars. Maybe those made in USA is physicallymuch better, but problems of technology they must have the same. Im from Ukraine, had the same problems, guitar came new, packed from factory, without nut screws, with some tape under it ... (lollipoplollipoplollipop) Korean assembly. Can you record small video to show your problem ?
  5. I already did it, as told before :) swaping piezos connections, and problem goes to another string. So I can not understand a logic to buy a repair parts, problem is in electronic ... And yep, piezos onboard has a lot difference between each other, more than 6 db, you need to turn up volume of the most unsensitive and then calibrate others , and increase overall volume, sad fact. Tnx for advice, I left this issue as it is, not important to me :) But what do you think about native humbuckers ? They are pretty good to me, but I didnt compare them to something another yet.
  6. Thank's a lot :) But all those answers is like advices "try, maybe this will help .. " No reasons to check it at all, because when I swap 5 and 6 string piezo connectors, problem goes to 5th string, 6th string in this position, when it goes to channel designed for 5th string to the electronic - has ideal sound ! So it is no any reasons to check, problem is in the computer inside, I think this sound is notching in system for each string as usual, but L6 got a lot of non-liquidable electronics, which is unable to fix with new firmware. This is only one way I can explain this issue. But anyway I don't use electric guitar emulations, they are not good to me, only acoustic models, they are incredible, and I'm happy to play on this guitar :)
  7. I decided to leave it, my dealer sold it for much lower price. Reason is: - Strats and tele models isnt good anyway in compare with real ones; - Low quality of factory control(it comes with unscrewed nut and with piece of tape under, without tape 2nd string are on first fret. Even if I decide to change guitar and send it back from Ukraine to States, is no guarantee that second one will not have worst problems, for example bad neck ...) Real goals of jtv89f is great unit for shredding with good magnetic pickups, and awesome acoustic models, also maybe some hollow body models, without using higain, or disable body emulation can help a bit with that resonance . But I still didn't read all answers in this topic - what was a L6 opinion with it, only to change guitar to find working one at all ?
  8. Same problem, last firmware, reflash done. Does anyone knows is it possible to fix or guitar must go back to the shop ?
