JTV-69 - tone poti only works with modelling on?!?

Recommended Posts

Hello from Germany!

I just get my JTV-69 out of my bunch of various guitars and wonna have fun...

As already mentioned in the title - when I turn off the electric way (playing with normal PUs) the tone poti has no effect, everything sounds "dull/dark" - no brightness.

If I turn on the modelling the tone poti works fine.


I really am not sure if this was the normal function when I recently used the Variax but... certainly I would heard it.

Does anybody have an idea or even better a solution? I cannot imagine, that this little passive component can be broken because it works fine with different switch settings.

Do I have a chance to fix it by myself when I open the guitar?

Thanks so much and best regards,
