Long story short, my mom stepped on my guitar cable and snapped it of at the end. Thankfully, i got the larger pieces out, but there remains the little, tiny tip, stuck down in the input.

Any way i can manually get it out? i have the chassis out.

look, I don't have the amp, but am saving to get it, but the same thing happened to me an another amp. If there is three gold strips over the ilnput of the chassis, get a paperclip and lift the last one. At the same time, get another papercli and stick behind the cable tip and wiggle it out. I there is more bars, do the same thing, and eventaually it will come out. Hopefully that helps.
Save a trip to the RT!

Go to autozone and get a telescoping magnet and use it to get it out.


Wouldn't that be too big? and if not, would it be strong enough?

ok, this definitely happened to me. i took it into the shop, and what they did was took a very thin wooden dowel (it was actually part of a wooden jazz drumstick) and they put some glue on the end of it. they shoved it into the tip of the cable that was lodged in the amp, let the glue dry, and voila.

dont take it to guitar center.. theyll just tell you to take it somewhere else. the same thing happened to me. i tried to do it myself and it didnt work out. take it to a local shop, theyll do it, maybe for cheap or free, who knows. go that route tho.

to whoever suggested the magnet, wouldn't the magnets on the back of the speaker interfere with it?

No its just right...



Its a line 6 the crimp strength on that input jack shouldnt be that strong. A few quick yanks and you should be able to get it out. The magnet is strong enough to pick up a the biggest of sockets so its worth a shot.

And to the other guy no the speaker magnet will not mess with it.
#15
Lord, yes. Try the magnet first. The glue idea is laughably bad. If you have the chassis out as you say, what's to stop you from opening it up? I bet the jack is a common open type and you will be able to use a small screwdriver to extract the plug tip.

laugh if you want. it worked, and it in no way affected the performance of my amp.

i don't see what the problem is if you use a very small amount of glue and have a steady hand.

of course the magnet would probably work better.

It's just a bloody stupid idea. You have no idea where the excess glue is going to end up. The time you spend waiting for the glue to dry would be better spent taking things apart and extracting it properly. If I ever saw some idiot, whether at a shop or not, sticking glue into my input jack, I'd slap him silly.

now that i think about it, that is totally not something i would do.

i wasn't there when he did it, he just told me about it when i picked it up.

that dude was pretty stupid actually...

How many times did she tell you to turn it down before it got to that point?
