Try a different cable.

get your stepdad to pay for it to be repaired since it was his fault. and also, maybe try getting him to buy you a new amp...maybe one that doesnt suck sweaty balls.

Make the fool pay for the repair.
THEN use the amp as the base of a fire to burn him..

Don't flame him just because he's got an MG, he came here asking for help, not to get slated for his amp.

xMikeyxMetalx, enjoy your report.

PCSpeaker, you're lucky you said something that could be vaguely useful, else there'd be one heading your way too.

Now, to address the problem. When your stepdad ripped out the cable, he broke a solder joint on the inside of the amp, on the input. My advice is that, if you are competent, or if you know anyone that is competent with electronics to get them to take a look at it. It's not a tough job to do, just wouldn't want you break it further.

The other option is to take it to a techie to sort it out. Shouldn't cost too much to get repaired, it's a simple job.

Oh, before I forget, try another cable, just in case it's not the problem above

Dude... don't get your thong in a knot.

Just fix the input jack.
It shouldn't be too hard for a tech, or even yourself to replace it.

I had a similar problem with my P.O.S. strat (its a jay turser, worst guitar ever!). The sound kept coming in and out. turns out it was the cable. Also, it had a slight electrical smell. I guess that was just from not being used as much. It was when I would normally play for an hour, then when I would play for 2 hours, it would smell. I play for around 3 hours now. It dont smell any more, so I guess it was just not used to being run that long yet. oh well.

Now, I use either my Epi SG or Casino through my dad's Ampeg gemini ('68 issue)

thank god for maturity, i was getting tired of all the crap remarks. true mg's aren't top of the line, but they aren't total crap, and are better than nothing.
yeah, take it to a tech and get it fixed, only thing to do. keep it out of the way of your stepdad next time. why the **** did he do that anyways??
