GizmoB replied to brain4000's topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDI have a JTV 69s that is experiencing similar symptoms. It will switch from 12 string to 6 string randomly or go from standard tuning to DropD.. Duplicated with ethernet & 1/4" cable plugged in to Helix or my standby POD XT Live. Not the best thing to happen if you are playing live.. The guitar went back to the dealer where I bought it (Long & McQuade) in Ottawa a few months ago for repairs. It seemed to fix the issue but it has started up again. With the randomness of the occurrences I'm thinking this is most likely a hardware issue. Do you recommend I log a support ticket? Cheers.
