    I have a Steve Morse Y2D Darklord. Bought this guitar, because of the fat neck (similar to a '58 Les Paul), compared to the regular Y2D, and the reverse headstock. What I don't like is that dust collects under the clear pickguard and that it's a bit on the heavy side.

    First preset gets deleted when switching to it from another preset

    I already did a test with a preset that contains just a shunt as preset 000 and as "starting preset". It's exactly the same, hence I doubt that the problem is related to an effect block.

    Another observation, might probably be helpful for debugging. I started the Axe-Fx III. After the boot process is finished, it shows preset 007.

    Try to wait a few minutes before you switch to preset 000. In my case this is the most important factor to reproduce it. It never happens on instant back and forth switching.

    First preset gets deleted when switching to it from another preset

    I can confirm that it also happens when there's no FC connected and I change presets via Axe-Edit, like @Rich5150 already wrote. I also think that it started with FW 12.14 or 13.00. Can't tell much about 12.14, because I had it only installed a few hours and then switched to 13.01 on which it...
