  1. I know this is an old thread but I'm trying to have one installed on my JTV-69 and I got the exact one linked above (the Fender two-piece retrofit) and my luthier says it won't work. The bottom piece is curved and my slot is flat so the bottom piece already sits below the fretboard instead of flush. Hopefully the one-piece shelf style might work?
  2. Well damn. My luthier says that nut won't work because it's curved and the slot is flat and it's already flush so he can't file the bottom down. I wonder if I need a different model of Earvana. He seems to think I need one of the one-piece models.
  3. Wait, what? All the JTV-69 specs I've ever seen all say 12" radius.
  4. I'm guessing the Fender Retrofit 1 5/8" 12 radius?
  5. Does anyone know which Earvana nut I would use on a JTV-69?
  6. What if you are running two parallel paths in the Helix? I'm guessing the impedance would be set by the first block on path 1?
  7. And thanks for the extremely detailed lesson, Qwerty. It feels so weird to be 37 years into a guitar career and somehow not knowing this stuff. I've never been a vintage gearhead, or even really that much of a pedal freak so I just never had to deal with any super drastic effects like that.
  8. BTW, I edited my original post once I realized why I had only *just* encountered this problem.
  9. Wow, this is all new to me as I've primarily giggled with my Variaxes or used a wireless so I've never run into this until tonight. Just now I put an Arbitrator in front of an Essex 30, and to me the bypassed sound is just unusable. I don't remember ever encountering this before but likely because maybe it's just possible I never used a regular pickup guitar cabled into the guitar input and wanted a patch where I could kick fuzz on/off. I literally thought this was a bug and was about to file a bug report when I did a search and found this thread. Maybe in 37 years of playing, I just never ran a real tone-sucking impedance pedal. This is crazy! I feel like my world just got turned upside down and like "How the hell have I been a professional guitar player for 33 years and never had to deal with this?" My guess because I used wirelesses a lot, and likely pedals that just didn't have as drastic an effect as a Fuzz Face, I'd guess. And then I switched to Line 6 stuff from their first product (the AxSys 212) and Variaxes as soon as they came out. For now I set up a whole separate second path now which seems unnecessarily complicated for just wanting to toggle a fuzz on/off with no gain/tone loss, or setting Input Z manually and I'm guessing compromising the fuzz tone.
  10. Here's a pic of the Tremol-No laying on top of my JTV trem.The black allen screws are directly over the claw screw holes. You can see the JTV claw screws are closer together. The Tremol-No is the standard claw screw spacing I've had on every other guitar I've ever owned. That's the stock claw that came with my JTV-69 when I got it brand new as soon as they were released.
  11. Yes the screws on the claw that the springs attach to. They are Spaced narrower than standard. I discovered that when I went to install my Tremol-No when I first got my JTV-69.
  12. My other post has me thinking that I really want to install a Tremol-No in my JTV-69 but as mentioned in the other post, the JTV trem spring screws are closer together so I would have to fill them and re-drill for the Tremol-No. I've done this for a strap button before using toothpicks and woodglue but I have a few concerns here: 1. I don't know how I would get a drill in there deep enough at the right angle to drill new holes. 2. How would I make sure to position the holes exactly right? Just try and make sure the new screws looked equidistant to the old filled in holes? I feel like this shouldn't be that hard and I really want to do it but also want to make sure I don't mess it up or that it's not far more complex than I think.
  13. My JTV-69 has been my main guitar since it came out, but the only bummer for me was that I couldn't (easily) install my Tremel-No on it when I got it because the trem spring are set just slightly narrower than standard. Does anyone know if there is a reason for this? Now that being said, I've always found the Trem on this thing to be one of the most stable trems I've ever played with very little dipping of pitch when bending strings or doing double-stops and I have no idea how they accomplished this. I don't *think* the narrower spring spacing would affect that but I'm no luthier/phycisist.
  14. All the new presets are classic by default but there is a setting in each patch where you can set it to FR if you want to.
