  1. I tried to roll back to 1.9 and it made no difference unfortunately. It was also muddy as hell.... Back to 2.0 and it's plinkyness
  2. reply from Line 6 was standard stuff asking me for a clip ... and asking me to re-flash ... even though I had already given the clip and told them I had re-flashed. they have passed the ticket to Line6 UK and also suggested I contact the supplier in the UK. I have done so and linked them both back to this thread. hopefully they will figure out what is causing the issue for us. I would ask other to also raise tickets and point them at this thread. too. if other people have the same problem, please chime in and post clips to help line 6 help us. thanks
  3. yep, that sounds exactly the same as mine ! lets see what Line 6 has to say
  4. did you post a sound of the problem online? here is what i posted. it is a metallic sound in the second half of the clip
  5. Hi all, yeah, here is my thread about the issue kinda a modulated ring modish sound . I have not opened a case yet .... but think I will. as I said in my thread, I owned a Variax 700 and am sure this was not an issue
  6. cool thanks. I will deffo try a different set. One observation i have made is that slight fret buzz that would not be audible via normal pickups is VERY audible through the pickups. I had to raise my action slightly to improve things. So flats and half flats would back that up in that they tend to produce less fret buzz. not used flat wounds on a guitar before, only bass... might be interesting to try them thanks again for the tips guys.
  7. interesting stuff. one question guys ... if you are finding that changing strings improves things .... are you changing TO your preferred brand / type / gauge? Reason I ask is that I usually use D'Addario 10's anyway so wondering if I would not see any difference. there is still this metallic plink that I am not especially happy with, reading the action helped ... lowering string volume was debatable ... some amps it helped others made no difference. Personally I don't like EB slinky's, but I know a lot of people swear by them. so how much of this is just using the strings you are used to on other guitars?
  8. Thanks I will try the foam cloth tip. Really don't remember it being this pronounced on the Variax 700 hard tail I had, shame as I really am very impressed with the rest of the guitar.
  9. On a JTV-59p when in modelling mode I get this weird plinky plonky sound when using Palm mutes ... it does not seem to matter if it is Spank or Lester etc it is really noticeable and REALLY annoying. I tried it with the real P90's and it is fine ... so it is defiantly the piezo's and particularly the low stings. The thing is I used to own a Variax 700 a few years back and I really can't remember it being this bad. is this a fault? here is a sound clip, it sounds worse in real life... MP3 / SoundCloud seems to have mellowed it.... but in reality i could not play live with it, the first section is the real P90's and the second part is the Lester model. I am running latest firmware and all models etc are stock. thanks in advance
  10. I too found the action on a new 59p to be too high for me... So took it to my tech an he lowered it, feels great. But.. The slight fret buzz you can get with electric that you can't really hear when amplified is really noticeable when using the modelling due to the piezo's. If you have a pro set up and the tech is not used to variaxes it might be worth pointing this out so they can try and minimise it
  11. Hmmmm, very interesting..... Thanks for posting! I wonder if they do one for the JTV-59? Will have to download the template to see.
  12. It is what it is.... A JamBox with X3 modelling, for living room practice. I guess it is pretty cool for kids, a beginner or an occasional amp for the living room. It is what it is. I would not say it was a "Re-Invention" ... That is a big stretch.
  13. That is really funny, bad and reminds me of the "Shreds" videos on you tube..... But then it also highlights a very important point... the need to make sure you can't hear the actual real strings whilst using alternate turnings, even just a little bit in the background can throw you off.
