    Loud Pop

    So that is just the way it is changing between presets. Seems like a major bug. Yeah, ill try that. Bummer is I like the Topo 1 for clean and then jump into 4 for leads. But I think I can get close trying that. It is just so hard to clean up 4. Thanks

    Loud Pop

    Hi, I am having a heck of a time chasing down a loud pop when I use my foot switch to change from one tone to the next on some tones. I have a hd500X going to the DT25 (line 6) I have tried changing mixer levels to match. Volume levels on amp mods. Even though the volume level are low there is a big pop on my Amp. Any solutions? Very disruptive in a set changing to leads. or other. Tom

    Got my new 59 JTV

    Yeah, I know that many love the 69 that is why I was set to get it. Everyone's hands and play style are different, I was planning that I would get a new neck going in, but there was just a connection with the 59 feel. I really wanted tremlo and option of other necks but. When a guitar makes you want to play and create. You can't argue. Main report is that the line6 can give you great tone (my main worry) and they are well made guitars. (69 neck with a little work.) I didn't mention that when I line monkey updated, that it crashed to guitar and failed to update, then the USB hub started blinking red. Tried many times and it would not work. Then did what they say not to do and went through HD500x and LineMinkey saw the Variax and did UPDATE again and it worked. After that all good. So far.
  4. Well I got my guitar. Unexpected Journey. (all good) Drove about an hour and half to PitBull Audio because they had several JTV's in stock. I had my mind made up for the jtv-69. They were waiting on a few other customers and said that they had the 69's in the warehouse. But they would bring one out for me in a minute. I saw that they had a 59 Cherry Burst on the wall, so I grabbed it off the wall and plugged in. Not battery so I just was checking out the feel and mag pickups. Right away this guitar felt like I had played it for years. fret board felt better than my LP standard. seemed to be able to play cleaner, like there was a fraction of an inch more room. It was just great. I couldn't wait to see the -69. In a few minutes they brought out the -69 and opened the box. I picked it up and it felt like a baseball bat sawn in half. fret board was nice, but felt a little rough on the sides (like it needed a little sanding). I sat and played for a while and I just could get that same feel that I had with the -59 a few minutes before. I knew from this forum that I could switch out the Neck and was prepared to do that. But......that 59 feel. I have horses, and I have learned from experience and a few broken bones you get the best horse, not the best looking. So I thought hey I got to check the -59 again. Yep is was a dream. So I said, I really don't want this in Cherry Bust, do you have it in tobacco? They did, brought that out. It felt good like the Cherry but not quite as silky. So I now own my last choice in color, but my new favorite player. My impressions, first day plugged into my hd500X and my DT25, wow this thing sounds like crap. Did a lot of reading about settings, PRE-amp, line inputs and Variax settings, and then on the second day.... WOW....I can't put this thing down. Sound IS AWSOME and MODELING IS FANTASTIC on most of the settings. Even the few like the acoustic and 12 strings that sounded bad on the next few days, once I found the acoustic settings in the playlist HD500x play list, another day of WOW. I can not see how this is not going to be the main guitar that I play. I have a Gibson LP Standard, Fender Start and a Taylor acoustic (and others). And the versatility and options have inspired 3 new songs in styles that I have never really worked on, JAZZBOX and also with DADGAD in 12 string. I am satisfied beyond all expectations. I am a believer. Thanks to the great guys on the support forum for all there info.

    That really starts clearing the FOG... Thanks
  7. OK, that is soooo much clearer than the mystery clue they give in the manual with a picture. Of course it all makes sense now. Another question: So are you not able to switch from bridge to neck while in a model mode? Seems like it switches you to another model. I know that you are not using the magnetics at this point, but certainly with any modeled guitar you would want to change from neck to bridge, etc... What is the point of having a Page 58 lester, when you can't switch to bridge for lead or neck for blues? Tom
  8. Hi, I just got a new JTV 59. I see that the manual that came with it is a joke considering the complexity of this guitar. I am sorry but I guess that I am a little slow or should be taking the short bus to school from now on as I am lost. I have a HD500X and a DT25 also, so I have completed my "Dream Rig." Thing is the manual that came with, the manuals online or the 2 tutorial videos that line6 offers explain nothing of how to actually make these things work together. I would love to know if you can set up a preset of modeled guitar in Work Bench and a model Amp in HDedit and actually save this to a Foot Switch on the HD500? I swear that is what they (line6) imply, but nowhere do I see how to do that? Are there links to these instructions of how to videos that anyone might point me to on using this Dream Rig? How to save preset modeled guitar and modeled amp? You know Eddie Van Halen guitar and effects, stomp the switch and bang guitar amp and effects are all set. Then Hendrix Strat w/ 1/2 down, fuzz and whah, stomp and bang. Please tell me that this is what the Dream Rig does? I understand that I need to setup in HD Edit and or Workbench. But how do I combine and then assign to a switch? ALso any other must see links of videos that might save me a couple hundred hours of searching. Like a little more explanation of how to use the cryptic 3 position selector switch to get 5 guitar models. I think the instruction manual has 2 sentences and a picture the shows a button and an = sign. Thanks Tom

Be prepared to take some 0000 steel wool to it every so often if you really want to keep the "raw" feel it's got now. __________________ So what do you have - 59? Or is there a gloss neck option in 69?

    HSS vs SSS JTV69

    Arisiaf, Thanks. That is why I am asking this question. Nice to know these things before I buy.
  12. I got my cash together and have settled on jtv69 I am wondering about the pros and cons of going the HSS pick ups over the SSS pick-ups. I've always thought that the HSS would give me more flexibility with the JTV having the options modeling when I want that. Just wondering what is more popular and if any of you guys have maybe found more or less problems with one over the other and also the tones. Also is there a serial number or updated model that I should be making sure I get. I am getting from Sweetwater and figure they will have the latest inventory. What have you guys gone with. All opinions welcome.
  13. Well with much reservation, I am still getting the Variax because of this support forum. Line6 should take heed to being proactive with problems like the people here on this forum that don't get paid by line6 but actually pay their salaries through their purchases. How Ironic. Line6 needs to be like amazon and make it easy to return and quick to fix these $1,000 +++ purchases at least until they get a good name for their quality. Or they will keep wondering why they don't get the traction with their lines that they deserve. They may be making a profit but they will never make their mark in the upper echelons on Gibson and Fender if they don't get a clue to their real problems. They have a real opportunity to do it with the innovation that they are bringing. Stay tuned.
  14. Urgh. I am sure you are bummed. What the heck is it that they come out with a $1,100 guitar ($2,000 list) that seems to be a beta still all these years later. I just find it hard to roll the dice. Good Build / Bad Build. I guess if I lower my expectations about the build quality and be prepared to just return I might get it worked out. Thanks for the straight dope in this guitar.
