lvska1 posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDI've been using my JTV-69 with the dream setup for over a year and I couldn't be happier. I'm interested in trading it in and going for the big time with a US model but there is really not much information about options or timelines and availability. I would really like to get a JTV-89F-US because I am starting to fall in love with the floyd rose system. I also love the lace deathbucker pickup and it would be awesome to have it in the guitar as a stand alone humbucker. I can't even find a place to buy the 89F-US version and it would be cool if they did custom orders, especially for the price that the US models are going for. I really love my JTV-69 though and I guess I'll just keep a lookout. If anyone has a contact with the people in the Line6 custom shop that would be awesome.
lvska1 replied to bugnut265's topic in DT50 / DT25I purchased my DT50 Head on August 2012. Received an email about my serial number qualified for tech bulletin 59 in April 2013 and I sent it to Line6 to do it.. The only thing wrong before the update was some severe hiss on some patches using the HD500 with it, as well as some slight noise and pops by itself, which the latest firmware seemed to mostly fix. Amp cam back about two weeks later and seemed fine. June 15th, it would not power on, found out the main fuse (5 amp) was blown. Bought a couple new fuses and tried it again. New fuse blew immediately on power up (tried it twice, blown both times). From my research, most people with this problem ended up having a new transformer installed to fix the problem (which I believe tech bulletin 59 was supposed to fix). Looks like it is off to be inspected again. I have had it for less than a year, hopefully the fix won't cost me. Thank goodness I have my Mesa dual rectifier as a backup still (which has never had an issue) I'll put an update if I ever get one... I have an update. Luckily an authorized repair facility was only 60 miles from my house, so I dropped it off and several weeks later it was fixed. The repairs were related to Technical Bulletin 059, and whatever part was installed during that had failed so Line 6 covered it under warranty. Awesome. If it wasn't covered, it would have been around $170 for the inspection parts and install. Here is a list of the parts and model numbers installed to make my DT50 operational again: 11-30-0044 Power Transformer 03-23-0101 Capacitor 100uF/160V 24-18-1625 Littlefuse 239 01.6, Series 239 1.6A/250V Slo blo So in summary a new power transformer, capacitor and fuse is what was needed. I asked the tech is they found a reason why the original parts failed, no answer given. I'm just hoping the new hardware lasts.
