Wonky Eb tuning?
Dugansz posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDI have just bought a factory refurb JT variax with floyd rose. I like it alot and have started trying the different tunings. I have it run through a helix floor model and like lots of overdrive and distortion. The standard and drop d tunings are right on the money and sound great with all the different guitar models. But as soon as i switch to 1/2 step down, it sounds awful. I play with plenty of volume so i am not hearing the strings in the true e tuning ringing out as per instruction manual. Anyone else have issues? I like the guitar and don't want to send back but this is a deal breaker if it cant be fixed. I have done a firmware reset using the line 6 monkey.
Does anyone know what the nut width is on the JTV-89F? The specifications listed here do not say how wide the nut is on the JTV-89F: http://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/guitars/james-tyler-variax-guitars/james-tyler-variax-general-faq-r31 and neither does the product manual here: http://line6.com/data/6/0a06434d357e5106d40019c0a/application/pdf/JTV-89F%20Onesheet%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20A%20).pdf Specs: JTV-89F - Mahogany body - 3-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard (Tyler Fast n' Flat neck shape) - 25-1/2" scale length - 16" radius neck profile - Tyler Fast nâ€™ Flat neck shape - 24 jumbo frets and dot inlays - Locking Floyd RoseÂ® nut and string tree - Sealed tuners (16:1 turn ratio) - Black and black nickel hardware - Floyd RoseÂ® Licensed double-locking tremolo system* by Graph Tech - L.

I appreciate the new model JTV-89F with a Floyd Rose and played it in two music stores. Unfortunately the Floyd Rose of the JTV-89F is not a low profile one like most Ibanez Trems (ZR2 etc), the Floyd Rose Pro or the Schaller Low Profile. My experience is that I only can play comfortable with low profile trems. Back-slanted finetuners are essential for me to play palm muting with no disturbing finetuners. So I ask and demand for a JTV with a low profile trem. Is there a chance that Line6 will produce one? If yes, that could be my second JTV after the JTV-59 TSB.
