So, I just got a Fender Strat HSS for myself, for my birthday. It was on sale for 89$, so it was an easy steal. It's sounded great coming out of the box. I played for a couple minutes, then decided to take off the plastic on and around the pickguard. Now, the sound seems almost muted. When playing on clean, you can barely hear it. When playing in overdirve, you have to turn it all the way up to get anything, and then it just sounds horrible. Has anyone had this problem or know what it might be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm itching to play it again, soon hopefully!

Thanks!

Have you tried the volume knobs. Is anything on the strings? Is the cable pushed into the jacks all the way?

Yessir. I have the warranty, so can just go get another, or have this fixed. It's just an hour away and I have little time as it is lol
