  1. I didn't plug anything, just drilled the new holes. Yes, the top holes (or the two at the very end of the neck) were fine. I had to drill the offset hole (obviously) and the other one.
  2. It's the stock tuners from the JTV. On the Warmoth necks its the Gotoh size.
  3. I also don't care for the blank headstocks. I had it custom made by some company in the UK (i forget the name of it...). You can specify what text you want and they print up the decals for you. You can choose from a few different styles as well.
  4. One thing to be aware of is that the mounting holes do not all line up. I wound up needing to drill two of them on mine. Not a huge deal but good to be aware of before you order.
  5. Here is my order from Warmoth: Style: CBS Stratocaster® Construction: Vintage/Modern Construction Orientation: Right Handed Neck Wood: Maple Fingerboard Wood: Indian Rosewood Nut Width: 1-11/16" Back Shape: Standard thin Fret Size: SS6150 (Stainless) Tuner Ream: Gotoh/Grover (13/32" 11/32") Radius: 10-16" Compound Scale: 25-1/2" Fret #: 21 Mounting Holes: Standard 4 Bolt Pre-Cut Installed String Nut: GraphTech Black TUSQ XL - Standard Nut Inlays: Abalone Face Dots Side Dots: White Side Dots This is the finished result:

The mounting holes do not all line up. I wound up having to drill two of them. It's not a huge deal do to but, just so you're aware. Here's my JTV now:
  7. I put a Warmoth neck on my JTV-69 as well (the standard thin with a CBS-era large strat headstock and a compound radius...). I just couldn't get used to the narrower nut width on the stock neck. The Warmoth neck is just phenomenal!
  8. It would also alleviate the issue with palm muting and the dreaded "plink." If only there was a way to use that roland P/U with the JTV processing...

    macOS Sierra ?

    Curious about this myself. I'm really hoping it works. I've love to get my OS current again.
  10. This was great and I actually really enjoyed the science-y first part!! Thanks for putting this out there!!
  11. Have you checked the intonation? I found that to be the biggest issue on both my 59 & 69. When I set the intonation, the warble almost* completely vanished. I say almost because, as it has been said, pitch shifting comes with some artifacts however, they've been hardly noticeable to me since setting the intonation correctly.
  12. The thing that I've found to make the biggest difference on both my JTVs (59 & 69) is proper intonation. I got both of them used and noticed a lot of warble I the alt tunings until I did a good setup and set the intonation correctly. After that, they have both been solid!
  13. This would be WICKED awesome!! Get that in idea scale asap!!
  14. Don't break the tabs off. Get these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VM5H9YW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3RL5M00VAQCZL&coliid=I2XER4NCDZHNG9 One benefit of these is you can use the same cable for connecting to something like the Helix (which doesn't currently support Workbench) and to the USB interface for connecting to Workbench.
  15. There are no "secens" on the Helix. It's a feature in the AxeFX units. Basically, each "scene" is just a collection of settings values for all of the blocks in a patch. Changing scenes just instantly changes all of the settings (including a blocks bypass state) in the patch. Since this doesn't actually change patches it allows for delays and verbs to spillover when you change scenes.
  16. I think the 2101 is one of the only units that does it. I also believe that was the device sited in that convo I mentioned that uses a separate processor to handle the spill over.
  17. Oh, for sure! I should have included that it's not likely we'll see spill-over between patches because it'd most likely require a hardware change to facilitate. I also agree that "scenes" functionality would probably cover this for most users. I'd LOVE to get that!!
  18. I don't believe any others do. I recall a discussion about this from a while ago (on the gear page I think...) and it was mentioned that it almost requires a separate processor chip to handle the spill-over. I think where others MAY have the advantage is in patch change times but, I don't have any experience with Kemper/AxeFX so I don't really know for sure.
  19. I, for one, would be just fine with a release with NO new stuff and just a fix for the tempo issue! :) Of course, new stuff would be awesome too! ;)
  20. One warning though. You'll need a charged battery to connect to the Variax Workbench. At the moment, Helix doesn't act as an interface for workbench.
  21. Did the adapter work for you running in El Capitan? Were you having issues with connection to the Helix app/Editor as well or just audio issues?
