  1. I'm fairly impressed with the mags it comes with. I've played more expensive guitars that dont sound nearly as good. Ive been going thru pickups on my Explorer and having a terrible time of picking ones that truly make me happy, but Im sticking with the Duncan I just put in with a coil tap. Was thinking about putting that paid (Pearly Gates and 59) in the Tyler Variax but now I have it in the Explorer and the Variax many friends have said, "Ive never though I'd like a LIne 6 guitar but Jeez that sounds good and the magnetic pickups are really great" so Im just gonna stick with them. Still not thrilled at all with the Ric models, and wish there was better (more quack) Strat 2 & 4 position tone models (I liked the previous version better for those 2, as well as the RIcs). But the acoustic is better and I use it a lot on those setting so newer update will have to stay. And yes, a classical/nylon string acoustic model would be cool, more useful than some of the other settings. I never really use or liked in either 1.9 or 2.0 the Jazzbox or Semi settings, it just cant come close to get that full sound of a real one. I do like many of the other settings. Wish I knew how to play banjo or sitar, I gotta work on that.
  2. I do have a Ric 360/12C63, 620 custom, ...and had a 381V69 I sold. Nothing sounds better than the real thing of course. I found a workaround for both my dissapointments with strat quack and ric settings by simply using my compressor. It also adds unwanted volume so I have to turn the volume knob on the guitar down, but thats not a biggie. I tried messing with the settings in Workbench HD and just couldnt get it where I wanted and was afraid I was making it worse. I must say that in this update I am extremely pleased with the updated acoustic (6 and 12 string) settings.

  4. I've seen others complain about the new Strat/Spank position 2 & 4 ("quack") settings being not as good in 2.0, but Line 6 responded that there will be a fix for that, What about the Chime / Rickenbacker settings? I like the older ones better, these sound less authentic, both 6 and 12 string models. Anyone else feel the same? Line 6, is there going to be a further update/fix for that?
  5. Is anyone else also unhappy with the new Chime settings in the HD update?
  6. Was able to connect today. Not sure if rebooting was necessary or just LIne 6 website wasnt working last night. It made me register my serial number and then....Updating now. I hope I like the outcome.
  7. I tried for the last hour to connect to Monkey and it wont go through/connect. I connected my guitar via the cables it came with and the USB box was not recognized. This process is not intuitive. Very frustrated. Maybe I will just live with the models it came with. Sad that I do not have the option to even try. Im not an idiot, and my internet is fine, so something is wrong with Line 6, my guitar, or something on your end. I updated when I 1st got the guitar and it all went well after the complicated figuring out learning curve happened (like not being explicit about having the guitar connected AND the amp jack plugged in at the same time.
