i recently got a used ibanez rg170....it was working fine the first couple weeks and now every time i plug it into my amp theres no sound. i dont think its the amp considering i've tried another amp. lose connection in the jack? would soldering fix it?....once i have time to take it apart (and if im not sure what the deal is) i'll upload a couple pics.

It's probably a loose wire in the jack.

Solder it back.


I think jenny has a picture diagram of it, maybe she'll post it for you.

it probably has active pickups and the battery is most deffinitly dead, go to the back of it and there should be a small cover that you can take off and there will be a 9 volt battery in there you need to replace.

Not active, so no battery.

Would it be possible to remove the jack (should just be two screws) and then take a picture?

Like stated above, it's probably a wire that needs to be resoldered, or a contact that needs to be bent back into shape.

thanks....i took it apart last night, the black wire was torn completely off and there was barely any wire left to solder back on...so took a look at all the electronics to see if there was any slack and discovered whoever made the guitar did an extremely terrible soldering job....i've got a temp fix but i think im going to need to buy some new wires and just re-do it haha.

radio shack sells wire, soldering kits, the whole sha-bang for under $20. nice to have around.

good luck
