  1. I replaced 2 of the 3 pickups on my JTV-69s Variax Guitar. Here are the photos of the process. ***** THIS IS AFTER WARRANTY INSTALLATION. DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK ***** Also follow Partev Sarkissian's advise on pickup replacements. Here is link to the photos. Hope this works. Let me know if you have any questions. Jd
  2. What version of Pod HD500x Edit are you trying to install? As what I see for OS 10.6.8 you should be using version 2.26 from what I read on Line 6 download page. Also what type of Mac are you trying to install this on? Jd
  3. How are you connected to the Variax Standard? It works best if you use the Line 6 interface supplied with the guitar, Jd
  4. I've swapped out some of my pickups in my JTV-69s According to Sweetwater's specs on them, they are Alnico, not sure II, IV, V. Bridge pickup impedance is 7.18k, Middle is 6.29K, and Neck is 6.16K Before I swapped out I measured the heights neck pickup: Low E side-.1885" High E-.2330", Middle: Low E-.2100" High E-.2405", Bridge Low E-.2025" High E-.3195" Hope this helps you. Jd
  5. DT Edit is pinned on the top of this forum. If Monkey is not recognizing the DT25 it's possible using DT Edit might show the same results not seeing the DT25 Jd
  6. You would have to use the effects loop of the pod 500x, you can then put the effects loop anywhere in your effect change. Jd

    Pod HD and EMG

    You have to push down on the toe of the expression pedal to switch from Volume to wah or back to volume( or what ever you've selected the exp pedal to control) also note you'd have to have a wah in your list of effects for this to work. Jd
  8. You bought it brand new and maybe forgot to peel off the plastic protective that covers the screen? Jd

    Graphic EQ

    Kind of lame, but yes it's limited to only 5 band. Some would say it's all you really need for the frequency range of a guitar sound, but to fully shape it EQ wise with one instance, block, it seems limited. Guess it was all they could squeeze into the programming back then. Jd
  10. You should start a new topic as this one is dealing with pickups and not dead guitars. Better chance of people seeing your questions/issue. Jd
  11. @srl01 I think @cruisinon2 might be complicating this more than I thought your original post was, or maybe I'm not understanding things. If you want to have the JTV/Standard variax as a acoustic guitar(modelled) on one path and on the other path the JTV/Standard pickups going into an amp model that is possible on a POD HD500(x) or Helix( I don't have one of those but it's more powerful routing wise than the HD500 so I'm sure it's possible on it). You would have to have both tuned the same as in no funky DADGAD tunings on the acoustic as this wouldn't sound right. If you want to have a Les Paul on one path and a Fender Strat on the other, then cruision2's comment is correct that this can't be done. It would always have to be Magnetic pickups on one path and the Variax modelled guitar of choice on the other. Hope this makes sense. Any questions, let me know. Jd
  12. Either the Helix family or POD HD 500 with either a JTV or Standard can do what you need, the caveat to this is you'd have to use the VDI cable. Jd

    64 bit

    Interesting. So why would it state on the download page it's supported and I have both running fine on my MacBook with OS X. Jd

    64 bit

    I don't think should be an issue as when I looked up these 2 for download is just states on the right what versions of OS X the current version is supported. If you've tried it and it's not working then give us some more details to try to help you out. Jd
  15. You issue may be related to what driver you are using. Got this info from the manual. Default Sample Rate & Bit Depth: Use this option to set the default sample rate & bit depth that (non-ASIO®) applications will use when using POD HD500X as the audio interface. These options are only applicable for when an application utilizes the POD HD500X device via the Windows® DirectSound® driver. They will be non-selectable when in use via the ASIO® driver. Hope this helps. Jd
  16. Welcome. Since you are using the effects send already and are also using the VDI cable, I don't see any other way of connecting your DigiTech pedal. I know this will sound like I'm plugging Line 6, but you might consider upgrading to a Helix as it has multiple effects sends/returns. Then you'd be able to connect your Free-Out pedal. Jd
  17. I've wondered that myself, it's less work for them. But guess we have to live with it. Jd
  18. Agreed. Here is another product you'd think would be out by now. A wireless guitar pack with in ear monitors for those playing the same guitar all the time. Jd
  19. That was my point, the VDI is a set value and the Guitar Z input is changeable so unless we know what the default # of the VDI impedance one can't make a proper comparison of both ways of connecting the guitar. Jd
  20. It may also depend on what settings you have for the Guitar In-Z input impedance. Impedance values from low to high (22k, 32k, 70k, 90k, 136k, 230k, 1M, or 3.5M) on POD 500x. Not sure what the impedance is default for the VDI input, as the Guitar In-Z setting affects the GUITAR IN input only. Jd
  21. line6.com/customtone/ then search POD HD 500x for either Boston or Tom Scholz Jd
  22. Frac82, "dual mono" as it would be summed to mono as the DT25 is a mono amp. Jd
  23. Dave, the Lt2 would be last in the connections using L6 Link. as per 2-18 of the POD HD 500x manual: *Note: It is necessary to always place the StageSource speaker(s) last in the L6 LINK signal chain (e.g. - POD HD500X > DT50 > StageSource L3). For more about using the L6 LINK connection, DT Series amps & StageSource speakers, please see the additional documentation available at http://line6.com/support/manuals/.
  24. I've been using this cable for a while. It feels/acts like a regular guitar cable. Not to expensive either. https://www.amazon.ca/Bose-T1-Digital-Cable-ToneMatch/dp/B000VE8PRK Jd
