I was playing and my sound was cutting in and out until eventually it just stopped. It's not the amp because I've tried two different amps and its not the cable because I've tried numerous cables. I was thinking a wire could've broken but was wondering what everyone else thought. I don't really mind because I was gonna upgrade this guitar very soon anyway but advice appreciated, thanks.

Probably a loose/broken connection on the input jack, so check that first, as long as you have common sense you won't damage your guitar by taking out the input jack.

what guitar? if it has active pickups you may have to change the battery. Other then that it's probably a loose wire somewhere
