High pitch sounds/echo/chime when playing chords.

Hi everyone!

I just received my Line 6 Variax Standard today and when I was trying it out with the magnetic pickups I heard a resonating/high chime sound, especially when playing the D chord. I've tried to lower the magnetic pickups but it is still there, so it's not string pull I guess. When enabling the modeling the same can be heard but it's much harder to detect but it is still there. Is this normal is the guitar bad, or the setup?

Lowering the pickups did not make a difference. The guitar was setup by a authorized Line 6 dealer. The action is pretty high tho and some fret buz can be heard sometimes but not when playing the D chord. It can be heard when unplugged, it sounds like it's coming from inside of the guitar.

Sounds like it's mechanical in nature, a secondary vibration, from the string nut or bridge end.

Something is fret rubbing somewhere. Should be gone over by a Line 6 authorized service center with the proper service info.

 

Non Line 6 techs won't have the correct set-up info. There can be interactions between piezo and magnetic pick-ups that non

Line 6 techs would not know to be aware of. Set-up needs to be done to Line 6 specs.
