Problem w/ models knob on new JTV-89
by scottsearle on 2011-02-18 12:15:25.0350

I just purchased a JTV-89 and have noticed that the Guitar Model Selector knob seems to be broken. Specifically, it doesn't operate as a button to activate/deactivate modeling.

When I press it down, it remain down. I have to press it down then lift it up a little to simulate the button click (and, in this case, it will switch between regular and modeled mode). Also, when pulling up a little the whole knob comes easily out of the socket.

It does function correctly when selecting among the various models. It is only the button behavior that is faulty.

Should I return the guitar to the store? Or, is there an easy fix?

No brainer -- return for an exchange.  There is plenty of JTV-89 stock so you won't wait long.

+1 Of course, return it straight away. This JTV story is so sad, ..what is going on Line 6?

I would suggest calling Line 6 support.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
