  1. I have done that and they are balanced. I can lower the low E further to reduce the plink, but then on cleaner sounds, it will be off
  2. That's your backing vocalist? :) What is your lead vocalist like?
  3. I have the same issue. It ususally occurs on the strat setting, bridge pickup and tone all the way up. The more distortion, the worse it gets. Actually any of the previous variables adds to the issue
  4. Thx for this. I find it helpful too to quickly look it up in a single spot, instead of searching online for the info.
  5. Is there ever a list posted of which presets get updated? I can identify some, sure, but remembering 100s is a bit much ;)
  6. How much of the 'Strat' sound do you lose when removing the Strat body for the neutral one?
  7. Richie Castellano's are really good with the Variax. I've been getting great sounds with them.
  8. Try one of these fret wraps, should fit well over your teeth: Also the camouflage means no one will notice.
  9. Previously I bought a 89f. It had the plink issue on multiple strings. It was most prominent with higher distortion and seemed more likely to occur around the 12th fret. I tried a few of the techniques listed in the doc here. It wasn't able to reduce or eliminate it much, so I sent it back. Fast-forward 3 months, I bought a 89 last week. When I first started playing, it had the plink again and it was stronger and more noticeable. I found the bridge mag pickup was very high and sometimes interred with the strings. I lowered it down and it was gone. Tried all the models and couldn't replicate it. After about a week of playing, it does appear on the low-E string, only with the Strat model and high distortion. It's not the biggest deal to be, but something I'd like to solve. I got a fretwrap and Elixir polyweb strings coming, so I'll test and see if it helps.
  10. Thx for posting this! Have you only had the problem on the 6th string? You have the 89f if I remember correctly?
  11. Oh Ok, what kind of hoping I had missed it and would be interested in applying the solution ;)
  12. Nope. I bought one refurbished and had the problem. Tried a bunch of different fixes. Sent it back. What fix are you talking about?
  13. I started a ticket with Support and they wanted me to send it in. Prob be gone a month. My advice would be to turn off the touch sensitivity for the show.
  14. I'd say get one, but only buy it from a place with a good return policy. I did from Musician's Friend, had the plink and tried a few of the suggestions. Was able to reduce but not eliminate it so I returned it.
