JTV 69 Tuning Stability
mgamache posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDI have had major issues with my JTV 69 staying in tune. It will not stay in tune for more then a few minutes (usually goes sharp). I have a replacement neck from Warmoth (that I love -- all maple Vortex with stainless frets). I had a guitar tech look at it and he recommended a Super-Vee Mag-Lok. I think this has addressed the tuning issue, but I hate the way it makes the trem feel. It's difficult to use it subtly (it would work okay for dive-bombs, but I am more of a Bigsby type player). Is this a common issue with this variax? I have also replaced the pups with Lace Sensor Rainbow pack and also love the mag sound now. I really want to stay with the variax, should I sell it and buy a new one? Do I need a USA version? note: Using Nanoweb 10's
Hello, I am seriously considering purchasing a JTV69s. My concern is that I just recently tried out a JTV69 (not s) and when I did a simple D chord the high E slid off the neck. I read some topics on the forum about the issue and it seems the a new nut would help the problem. My question is this: Is this still a problem with the JTV69s? Has anyone had this problem on the 69s? Will line 6 cover this issue as warranty? There are a few guitar centers in my area but none have the 69s which mean I have to order it. I do not want to be in the position of ordering sending back and repeating. Any suggestions or help would be great. Thanks! drs
