My new Ibanez SRX 350 i got for christmas has a serious problem..as soon as I stand up the it makes a crackly loud sound as if the input cable is being yanked out...but it is fine as long as i am sitting down..

Is it just the cable or is it the bass?

It might be how your holding it...

My oldest bass, a crappy knock off bass i sold on did it. It only happened when i held the kneck at a high angle. Try tilting the kneck downwards a bit.

Try a different cable and see if you still have the same problem. If not, then it's just the cable. If it isn't the cable it's probably a loose wire on the input jack of your bass, or the input on your amp. If it's the amp or the bass, they're both easy and cheap to fix on your own.

Any simular expirances UG users?

it'll be an electric problem somewhere, so don't yank the neck!
try with different cables, if it makes the same sound its a problem with the bass, probably just a frayed wire.

i had this happen to me before...in my case what happened is the end of the cable that's plugged into my bass had a broken connection that stayed in place when i was sitting but then once i stood up the added weight of the cable below the jack pulls it down and breaks the connection. try swapping the ends of the cable or unscrewing the end of the cable to check the connections

^ You probably won't have to exchange it, unless there's one there you like better...

If it's a problem with the bass, they should fix it. It's pretty simple thing to do...takes maybe 10 minutes.
Nope, no sig here.

look (if you can) at the wires around the jack, I had this problem and just had to move the wires a bit and it was fine after that and if they are loose, probably a quick soldering job
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

Since I'm taking it in tomorrow, i'm not going to risk anything by poking around inside the bass

I'd try out everything, if I were you.
