I just restrung my guitar and plugged it in the amp and there was no sound. The only sound i got was when i turned it up really high. Then i tried with another cable. Then i tried a different amp. Does anybody no what happened? Thanks!!!

Is it possible you turned down the volume knob? This may sound stupid but I've done the same thing. If that's not it, maybe something happened to the pickups.

check input jack, volume, and if that doesnt work, than something came lose on the pick up

edit: try using the different pick ups. it might just be the neck or bridge and not the other

Maybe the guitar has a problem from the inside. If you open it up you can see that the end of the cable touches on another piece of metal inside your guitar(if i remember correctly). Maybe it has a prob over there. Nothing to worry about. Take it to a guitar tech and it would be fine

if you only got sound by turning up the amp really loud, then you have a large amount of signal loss. this points most likely to a problem with the pickups.

it would help if we could have some information on the guitar in question. what year? brand? make? any post-purchase body or electronic work?

wut kinda strings you using boy?


it wouldn't matter if your guitar string was 1/4" it would still make a sound so his strings isn't the problem.

I can't think of the name, but there is a tool that tells you if there is an electric current. I have one, and it worked for me. Just touch it to the pickup, and it will tell you if they are working

Maybe FenixFunk was worried the guy's fitted it with nylon strings or something...which probably would result in a very small signal getting to the amp

Assuming it isn't just the wires to the input jack coming unsoldered, it might be a dodgy pickup or selector switch.


Without more information about the guitar as requested, no-one can help...
