My amp work's, my brand new lead works my guitar however...doesn't.
I haven't played my electric guitar in about a month, i've needed a new lead and was in no rush to buy one as I had an acoustic.
I've just bought my new lead, I know it works as i'm playing the radio through my amp.
So both my amp and my lead work, when I plug my guitar in, nothing.
Zip, diddlysquat.
I've tried making sure that the connections around the jack are okay and they are, everything there seems in order, I don't want to **** with anything else without at least having a vague idea what i'm doing, i can't however afford a guitar tech -.-
What do I do?

plug your guitar into a tuner or something, see if that works
also make sure your volume is on, i've done that before then realised it was cuz my volume was off on the guitar
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)

was the connection ever a bit loose and you kept plugging it in anyway?
if so you may have broken a wire inside, thats what i done..
luckily for reasons unknown to be i have a soldering iron and a tube of solder so i just re-soldered it..
i've just realized this is of no help to anyone.. shutting up.
#7
are they active pickups in your guitar like emgs? if so try putting a new battery in them.

^Yeah, the volume knob will sometimes be the problem. Another thing I can think of is- does your guitar have active pickups? And have you left it plugged in?
#9
Pick ups don't need batterys, volume has been turned up down left right and sideways, i've checked the wires at the socket end and it appears fine (it is still connected, no break) but it might still be knackered, I can't find my electric tuner so I can't do that.

My amp only has input and output, the output is on the back of the amp, I did use the right one lol
I know the lead and amp work...it's something with my guitar but I have no idea what, I have tried all pickups all volume levels, everything I can think of.

something probably came loose and needs to be re-soldered or something
