  1. Agree on both counts... I should have sent it straight back instead of trying to work with the official process.... By the time I said enough... When line 6 still deny there is anything wrong... Too late for a refund... Luckily GAK were cool and ended giving me store credit. But another sour taste in my mouth thanks to line 6. Never again
  2. @ice9mike - do you have some models where you don't get plink? on mine it is ALL models.... you can hear it clearly in the recordings. and agree I tried all sorts of EQ and could not mask it... not that I should have to, but I tried in the spirit of getting to the bottom of it. I also offered to go to Line6 in the UK to demo it in person to try and help ...heard nothing,
  3. Hmmm indeed. I would post a link to the video for "Things to make you go hmmm" ..... but you could probably have me banned from the site for that. .....and rightly so. :D
  4. Interesting. To add to that, I played it through an Axe-FX II on various models and also on a Spider Jam... Just to make sure it was not just on the Axe-FX II... I got the same results on both devices. I finger pick as well, and a pick does make it worse... Although it is still there when I use my fingernail too.
  5. Cool, glad you got a good one ... thats great. Still waiting on a reply from GAK on what my options are. I guess they are looking into it.
  6. Update: Just gone an email from GAK..... "Line 6 have sent your guitar back to us as no fault found. They say it is working to spec." :angry: nightmare, I really had hoped they would fix it. i have asked GAK what my options are ... really very disappointed.
  7. Good man! Also not a fan of Trems, although I do have a strat for when I get a floyd inspiration. I did have a Floyd Rose guitar back in the late 80's .... Hated it and Man changing stings was one of the most stressful experiences... Like Adam Sandler movies.,,, saw one... Made a personal vow.... Never again!! Re going direct- same here, not used a real amp in years .... Since discovering PODs... Can't seee going back to a real amp. (Although I have moved on from PODs ... But that is a different story)
  8. Interesting, thanks for the update. Will be interesting to hear your thoughts when you get it back. Guess it will a different issue on my 59p as there is no locking nut. But if it is "Odd vibrations getting processed with the rest of the audio." that's gotta be a nightmare to troubleshoot for the techs ... could be almost anything. ... deffo one for the guy who like a real challenge.
  9. @Ice9Mike - have you heard anything back from Line6 on this? .... I am still waiting to hear.
  10. If you cannot try it in person, i would make sure you can send it back.... some of us have the same issue with the the low E and plink plonk sound...made worse when palm muting.... others seem to be fine... luck of the draw I guess. Although most of the posters with the problem seem to be 89f owners.... anyway i hope Line 6 can fix it. Yes, you can blend the magnetic pickups .. you need to do this in Work Bench on the computer, you can not do it without the editor ...but you can save the setting on to the guitar. Yep tried Nashville tuning, its pretty good.... like the 12 sting and alternate tunings then sound much better in a Mix ..they can sound a bit odd if played Solo ... not bad... just not 100% convincing, but in a Mix or a band setting, or jamming along to backing tracks they sound good.
  11. Hi there, I have a JTV-59p ... for a lot of the reasons you want one and it is a great physical instrument ... BUT I do have and issue with Palm Muting. Please see the thread as others have the same issue.... please listen to the audio clips..... i would advise you try the guitar in person to make sure it is not one that sound like mine, which is currently with Line6 for the second time trying to get to the bottom of the plink-plonk sound. I used to have a 700 and it did not sound like the JTV-59p with palm muting ... so I hope that Line 6 can fix it, as far as the P90's go ... I really like them.... I thought I would swap them out for "Better" ones .... BUT I really like them.
