JTV Spank Bridge pickup issue in 1/2 down tuning

Recommended Posts

I have a JTV-59 and am experiencing an odd issue with the Spank model bridge pickup.  Whenever I try to use it in 1/2 down tuning I get a really strange sound - like a warbled delay.  This happens with or without effects.  It happens whether I activate the tuning on the guitar with the tuning knob, or through my POD HD500 via forced tuning (Variax VDI input).


Anyone else have this issue and if so how did you fix it.


Any help much appreciated.

Ok, so I'm having one of those "did you try to plug it in" moments.  I went into workbench to check and see if maybe I had the magnetic pups blended with the modeled pups and low and behold, it was set at 10% blend.




I took it down to zero and problem solved.  Feel like an idiot because the manual and this forum has many posts about not being able to use altered tuning if you're blending the pups.


Although I don't recall reseting the blend but whatever.  hope no one else is having this problem!
