Firmware Version In New Jtv

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm going in to the local shop to try a JTV59 and 69 tomorrow. These were received by the shop recently after a period of none being available due to a change in the Australian distributer.

So, is there any way of finding out the firmware version without a computer?

Would anyone care to speculate what version would be installed?

Is there a way to tell by the serial number i.e. manufacture date versus fimware release date?

 

Hope someone can point me in the right direction. 

 

Thanks

 

Ted

I don't know of anyway to verify the firmware without a computer....

i could probably hear the difference between the old acoustics and the new acoustics and tell, but no way to pass that on to you.

It really doesn't matter which firmware version is installed now because it will soon be outdated. Line 6 has announced a pending firmware update so you will want to use a computer to update soon anyway. Best prepare for that, and in the meantime use the computer to find out what firmware version is currently installed.

Thanks guys.

 

I will take my laptop to the shop with me and hope they are OK with me checking/updating the firmware.

 

The main reason I want to know is the apparent palm muting issue. This is the only thing holding me back form purchasing a JTV. If the guitar in the shop is pre 1.9 then I wont be testing it as the best it can be. That being said if it is pre 1.9 and it satisfies my needs then it can only get better!!

if they let you hook up to check the number they will probably let you update it as well.

shocklngly they've removed it from their site....

seems even they think that 6 months is a bit early to announce it...

but it was announced at NAMM this year... january.

Even a "We're still working on it" would be nice to have at this point. :P

I did ask and get confirmation of this.... of course with no committed timeframe.... but they are working on it.
