  1. Hi guys, sorry for taking a couple days to get back to these new replies. to be honest I had given up on it but would love it to be fixed. i still have the guitar but don’t play it much partly because of the click noises we are talking about. one thing that I always wondered was that if you go back to 1.9 and it’s fine, then doesn’t that point to a software issue? If it can be fixed by different software then wish they would fix it!
  2. I found this fthis version 2 onwards: “Variax HD is a free firmware upgrade for all James Tyler® Variax® guitars. Variax HD delivers a world-class collection of HD guitars rebuilt from the ground up using Line 6's next-generation modeling technology. The team captured more detail than ever before, resulting in unprecedented sonic character and a more natural playing experience. From rare vintage electrics to classic acoustics and exotics, each HD instrument delivers superior articulation and exceptional feel - prefect for capturing inspired performances.”
  3. Hi, yeah I could roll back to 1.9, but aren’t the sounds better in 2.0? I thought I read the sounds were updated for 2.0 or am I imagining it? I can’t do the service thing because my guitar is now 3 years old so definitely not under warranty.
  4. Hi srvtsk, No unfortunately I never solved it and just gave up! Have not tried looking deeply into the grounding problem though. Would seem strange that it were a grounding problem if it only happens on some models? Would love to know if anybody finds a fix as it puts me off playing it.
  5. Hi there, It's not the bridge pieces because you can literally move your thumb/fingers over the strings as light as a feather and you get the intermittent click noises.
  6. Hi guys, I phoned Line 6 support here in the UK & they tested there support guitars and they confirmed they have exactly the same problem with there 2.0 guitar, not with the older, so they suggest it is a problem with 2.0 and it would be up to Line 6 in the USA to solve the problem with a software update. I guess what we need to do is have as many of us as we can emailing line 6 support to point out the problem and get the tide of complaint enough for them to fix it. I shall do this myself & please everybody else do the same!
  7. Hi there, I have Static/Clicking noise on jtv59p when playing with fingers For me it is most evident while quietly finger-picking on the acoustic and rockabilly models. It is definitely since v2 as I have tried going back and forward between 1.9 and 2 and it is not there in 1.9. I have seen it on a couple of jtv59p models (they are the only ones I have played). It is completely different to piezo quack, it is more of a static/clicking noise when playing quietly with fingers. I have noticed it is not there when using a plectrum, just my fingers, especially my thumb. Makes me wonder if it is a ground/electrical problem? (Complete guess). Considering returning the guitar and giving up as it is very annoying and has been on all the ones I have tried. I am vey surprised not many people have complained. Thanks,
