Hey guys, last Friday before my lesson I noticed my cables had to be fought with to get into my guitar, so I unscrewed the jack and bent the little plate outwards a bit so that the cables could slide in easier.

Later, the guitar worked fine in the lesson. Even later when I was jamming, it didn't produce sound through the amp unless the master was waaaaay high, and it never once worked on a distorted channel.

Ideas? It's an Ibanez Gio. I'm guessing I need to bend the plate back some though. <_<

EDIT: Oops. Meant to post this in GG&A but I guess since it's electronics related it applies here too?

i had something similar happen once with a peavey tomb, apparently it just needed the battery in the guitar changed. i dont know if your guitar has a battery but that might be worth a shot.

It doesn't have a battery, no. At least, I'm pretty sure it doesn't. I've never actually looked in the back panel where the electronics are since I've needed to . The pickups are most certainly passive though.

Nah, it's not the cables. I've tested it with different cables. I'm gonna try and bend the plate back when I get home again.
