  1. I understand your frustration. I only did the mod because I prefer not to use an adapter (which worked fine). It's got to be one of the easiest wiring mods as it only took me about 15 minutes (that includes warming up the iron) and I'm an amateur at soldering. BTW, my other Ibanez worked fine with the G10. It might be some specific models or it could even be which of the 2 posts on the output jack the tech felt like soldering the ground wires to, as either way it doesn't affect the output of the guitar; a ground is a ground. It might be pretty difficult to put together a very comprehensive list of which guitars are having difficulty. They'd probably have to compile data from all support tickets that were submitted on the issue but I'd bet that the majority of people experiencing the problem aren't going as far as to log a ticket. Since you don't want to do the mod, I guess your options are to return the G10 or use an adapter. Anyhow, I hope you get it sorted out to your satisfaction.
  2. Of the approximately 30 guitars I've tried it with, the only one I ran into a problem with was my Ibanez RGIR27FE (almost identical to your model). Switching one of the ground wires to the other ground post on the output jack fixed the problem.
  3. I figured someone would have tried this by now. I'm really considering buying a Friedman Runt 20 but I'm curious how close one could get with the BE-OD pedal and a DT25.
  4. Awesome!! Thanks for posting. I guess Line 6 must have decided to start including an adapter even though very few seem to experience any problems. If my experience is typical, based on mine and my friends guitars, the percentage of guitars experiencing problems would be about 3%.
  5. Well, to go the other direction, I absolutely love the stock pickups; they were a big part of my purchase decision.
  6. I've had quite a bit of fun playing my Majesty with the Helix. I run a stereo Y cable (TRS on the Majesty end, splits to 2 mono plugs on the Helix end). I run the magnetic pickups into the Guitar In and the Piezos into the Aux In. I set up a path for the Mags, which goes to my DT25, and a separate path for the Piezos, which goes to my Alto TS110A speakers. It sounds amazing! Someone suggested, but I haven't tried it yet, to set up an expression pedal to fade/blend between the 2 paths. The Majesty is an incredible guitar. It's in the top 3 of my collection. I spent a considerable amount of time playing them in guitar shops over a period of a year and a half before I made the purchase.
  7. I have all 128 IR slots filled. The Glenn Delaune and Fremen patches take up most of them. I also use the Orange IRs from, the Zilla & Suhr IRs from 3Sigma and the Taylor acoustic IRs. I would really like to be able to store more of them on the Helix or an easier way to cycle through my IR collection on the editor.
  8. I'm using a Trio + with my Helix. I'd suggest reading the following thread in the Helix section: Although it's for the Helix, it looks like it would answer all of your questions.
  9. Yep, they'll take 1/4" no problem.
  10. Painless and quick update for me, as usual.
  11. Although most of us are pretty sure Line 6 will come up with a better system eventually, a lot of us are just renaming the IRs with numbers in front (for example 076 Mesa Recto 2x12). Then when you import them back in, they'll stay in the right order.
  12. This is what I ran into as well. By default, the ASIO driver was set with the first and last inputs and outputs as 1 and 2. Changing this to 1 and 8 fixed my problem.
  13. Still rockin' my DT25 with my Helix.
  14. 3 of my guitars and 2 of my bass guitars have active electronics. I've been using the G10 a lot since June 19th without any problems. Electronics sometimes fail; that's what the warranty is for. I'm sure Line 6 will take care of you promptly.
  15. Sounds just like my Music Man Majesty. I run the magnetic pickups into Guitar In on one Path and the Piezo pickup into Aux In on the other path. Then I add the appropriate effects, amps, IR's, etc.. that I want for each path. To set up one of the paths for Aux In, toggle over to the far left of one of the paths, which is the input block. Rotate the joystick until it says Aux In. Works really good.
  16. I'm not at home right now but I'd probably start with one of the Plexi presets. Lynch used to run a treble booster into a '71 Marshall Super Lead and later switched to a Randall RG80 (which is similar to the Super Lead).
  17. I just acquired a new EVH Wolfgang Special and I've been stuck on the 5150 + Electrik patch for a couple of days now. It just sounds so good I can't bring myself to switch to anything else.
  18. I agree that it's a stated limitation and not a design flaw. I also definitely understand your hesitation to purchase one without knowing for certain that it will work on your guitar. Hopefully someone with that exact same model will chime in with an answer. You might be able to check for compatibility visually, if you can see how the output jack is wired. This might require removing the pickguard though. If the battery ground wire is connected to the ring and the other ground (audio) is connected to the sleeve, the G10 will work. phil_m: Is there any way to test this with a trs cable and an ohmmeter?
  19. I currently have 23 guitars with output jacks, 6 of which have active electronics. With the exception of my Ibanez RGIR27FE 7-string, all of them worked perfectly the first time I plugged in the G10 and the Ibanez worked with the adapter. I switched a wire to a different contact on the Ibanez's output jack and now it works fine without the adapter as well. I've had several friends bring over their guitars and all of them have worked so far. I'm not positive about the EC Strat but even if you had to have someone switch the wire for you, it wouldn't be expensive. I'm a novice at soldering and it only took me 5 - 10 minutes, not counting letting the soldering iron heat up.
  20. I've got a pair of Alto TS110A speakers, a DT25, a Vetta II and a Peavey 6505+ MH. Each of these can be set up to sound really good. That being said, 95% of the time I'm going into the Alto speakers. FRFR (or close to it) is just so easy to use and most of the presets I've downloaded or purchased were set up that way to start with.
  21. Some folks are using the 1/4" outs into a DI box and then running the DI's XLR out into the mixer.

    Helix For Bass

    Bought it direct from their website. I see they're out of stock at the moment though.
