Jtv-69 Middle Pickup Woes
KennyMac posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDMy JTV-69's middle pickup has quit working. :( I opened her up to see if there was a loose wire that had become disconnected, but couldn't see any problem. Has anyone else experienced this or a similar problem with your magnetic pickups?
Hi everyone, I read some topics in the forum and i'm not sure if any topic describe exactly my problem so i have to ask you guys. I bought my guitar (a JTV 59) refurbished in Line 6 store and finally after 3 month I bring it to my home in Argentina after a travel in the US, so I have to solve the problem pretty much by myself. After a few days of using it the bridge magnetic pickup starts to make some intermittent noise (not a hum, more like a broken contact). It only happens once in a while using the magnetic pickups with the VDI cable with and without the battery. With a regular 1/4" plug with the battery the noise is still there, without the battery the noise disappears. My clue is that the pickup selector is either dirty or broken, but the noise should be there at least i'm missing something. If you have any solution besides cleaning the pickup switcher i'll apreceate your advices. Thanks you in advance. Sorry about my english, it's not my native lenguage.
I think this has just started happening...Whenever I change the patch on the HD500 the Variax switches to a model (even though the guitar is set to magnetic pickups only). I have double checked the Variax controller window in HD500 edit and that says "Don't force" for model selection. So if the Variax (JTV59) is set to magnetic pickups then changing the patches on the 500 shouldn't have any effect on the guitar - but it does. I feel I must be missing something simple. Any ideas?
I just bought the JTV-69s and love the magnetic pickups. However, I would love to have the option of running the bridge and middle pups together in series, a pretty standard tele mod, and also done on strats. While understanding that this would probably void the warranty, is it even possible? I don't know what's going on under that hood. Also, I see wiring diagrams for the JTV- 59, 69, and 89, but not for the 69s. How would it be different from the 69? Thanks!
Jtv Mags And Pod Hd 500I just ran across a little issue, and wanted to confirm my suspicions... I recently made a group of patches for our Chrismas services at church and a couple of them involved using the JTV magnetic pickups (for eBow use). I set the input for these patches to "Variax Mags", made my tweaks, and saved the patch. When I recalled the patches during a rehearsal, I noticed that the pickup selection was not what I had originally set. Am I correct that when using the POD HD 500 with the JTV, it will default to the neck and bridge magnetic pickups both being on when changing to the patch?
