Ok so whenever i plug my guitar in now, it just makes like this loud buzzing sound and nothing i play goes through. I know its not the amp or the cable because i tried 2 of both so it is definitely a problem with the guitar. My friend said its is most likely a problem with the input socket on the guitar, does anyone know how i can fix this or do i have to take it to a shop?

connect the ground to the inner lug. a soldering iron kit is about $15 and has instructions on the pack. (dont forget the solder, if it's not in the kit)

The problem is almost certainly going to be your input jack. If you find everything to be fine in that area though, start looking around the pots and switch for any lose wires.

nah man it's a minor error
hmm possibly sounds to me that it's either the socket or the cable it self
did you try to plug some other instrument to the amp via that cable?


no i only have 1 instrument but i have two cables that i tried on it and they both didnt work so its most likely the input socket, i guess i have to take it to the shop.

No you don't. You can easily fix this yourself with a soldering iron.
it's all just coming back

a screwdriver is all you need to check the problem. if it is a loose connection on the input jack then a soldering iron is all that is needed to fix the problem and they only cost a couple of quid for a cheap one.

don''t bother with the shop, do it yourself! its fun to fix your guitar yourself. a sense of achievment. take pride!!
