  1. Try cleaning all the piezos with alcohol/cotton swab...if that doesn't fix it, you may need a new piezo
  2. Your best fix is to get a powered footswitch from Line 6. batteries are such a waste of time

    JTV-59 pricing

    Not sure about pricing....I tried both, and went for a JTV. the standard had a flat fretboard that was ok for chording, but was impossible to bend strings for soloing...the JTV69 is better IMHO plus the 5 way Stat pickup selector is more convenient for switching between models, than the JTV59

    Mix two guitars

    NO......but you can mix pickups. You can't have 6 and 12 strings on the same guitar model. You can mix the magnetic pickup jtv with whatever guitar model you have dialled up, in the software by adjusting a slider balance control.
  5. Hi there....can't guarantee that this will help, but it's worth a try....clean the piezo pickups in the bridge with a q-tip and some alcohol....plus I had similar issues with the Rick 12 string models and others...I plugged into my new Vox MV50 amp, and now the Rick model sounds perfect, and I now like all the models, not sure why....
  6. HI….you could skip all the hassle, and buy a power kit…I got fed up with my battery nonsense after a couple of days, and am glad I did…Happy Holdays

    Problem with guitar

    Hi there….Do yourself a favour, & get an XPS-A/B Power Kit from Line 6… My patience with the battery ran out after a couple of days
  8. It really helps to use lots of gain/overdrive on yer amp
  9. It helps to turn your pick so you are pinching the string with the edge of the pick, also try pinching at different positions up & down the string to create varying harmonic notes to jump out...
  10. You may need to adjust the trussrod if there is too much relief in the neck...
  11. Howdy….I'm only using the cable for data transmission to and from my Variax to Workbench HD, and it is every bit as solid in the jack as the supplied cable was.
  12. Hi Silverhead….thanks for the heads up….I am using Staples brand CAT5e Networking cable, which has a similar housing to the Line6 cable, only it's made of rubber…I just tested both in the guitar, and the Staples cable appears to be just as stable as the Line6…thanks for your help
  13. PROBLEMS SOLVED!... My VDI cable is faultry…replaced it with an Ethernet cable with the same exact specs, which should be OK to use from now on…it's gonna hafta be, because the old one is well, faulty….I was able to update my Variax Firmware also, which gets me into Workbench HD……..FINALLY….I haven't had to jump through so many hoops to get a product up & running as I have with this product…just sayin'…..Anyway, A BIG THANKS to everyone in this forum for your help!
  14. By regular internet cable, do you mean an ethernet cable?
  15. Thanks Leemh, but your suggestions are confusing
