^big surprise its not working anymore. Take it to a tech, but even they may not be able to help. And in the future NEVER PUT YOUR GUITAR IN WATER! They are electric instruments. Electronics + water = BAD.

u kind of remind me of AX7ownz for some reason.

first. u were biking with your guitar.
second. you didn't have a case.
third. you went home and gave your guitar a nice shower.
fourth. you probably plugged in a wet guitar into your amp.


well before taking it to the tech try blowdrying it and letting it get rid of the water first. It probably won't work but try anyways.

If its not the bucket of water you douched your guitar into.. try checking the cables in the back, maybe when you dropped it they came loose, youd have to resolder them.
