Recommended Posts

Hi, guys! Can you, please, tell me what cable I should use to connect my second hand JTV89 with my laptop?

You don’t just need a single cable. You need a VDI interface. The guitar should have come with it, but given your question, I’m guessing yours didn’t. You can pick up a stand-alone VDI interface or you can use another Line 6 device with a VDI jack that supports Workbench HD.

Thank you so much, Phil, no, mine was second hand, it didn't come with anything! So I need the VDI cable (which I know) and a stand-alone VDI interface (which I don't know).  :)  Can you give me a link to an interface like that, please? Can I buy the one that was supposed to come with the guitar?

You'd need this:

But do a google search to see if you can find these used or other sites as this price seems a little hight to me.

Thank you so much, Jakeman! But is it compatible with JTV 89? 'Cos it's written that it's for JTV 69.

As far as I'm aware all JTVs use the same vdi and interface...

 

Yep... There are two different styles of VDI interfaces now, but they'll all work with any Variax.

There is no place that I know of where we can download custom guitar settings for the JTV's. If others know of such a site, please share.

Hi, again! Can someone tell me, please, how to lower the strings on my JTV 89? What kind of tool do I need? Or do I have to take off the strings?

You just need a hex key (should have come with the guitar). If you are not sure what you are doing is probably best to get it set up by a guitar tech. They don't need to be a Line 6 person, just know about guitars. There is always YouTube but....

Thank you, Matt! I understand what you're talking about, but do you know what size that hex key is?

Just get a set of metric hex keys... if you're gonna own a guitar with a Floyd, then you're gonna need various different sizes anyway... for the locks at the nut and saddles, intonation adjustment, etc. etc. Should be able to find a set that'll include everything you need for $10 or less.
