Two of my cables died out on me again :wutblau: It does tha one thing where the cable doesn't put out a signal unless it's in some weird position. So, I can't really move the cable around without losing the signal... Had my friend check the tips, he said the tips were fine, so I'm guessing that the problems inside the actual cable. Any tips on this? :dance:

Make sure the jack on your guitar is niuce and snug as well. 9 out of 10 times a loose jack will screw with the signal and just needs a couple of turns on the nut. Be sure not to tighten and pull the wires free. Then your screwed until your solder iron heats up.

Stop buying cheap ass cables.:D
i have to agree.lol. if you buy cheapo cables they are soldered poorly inside. they will all come apart over time. invest in some good cables. you can get some hotlines for fairly cheap and they are pretty tough.
but as stated check your guitar jack and amp also with a cable you know is good.

I find that even good cables go bad after a couple years because I don't take care of them. Invest in a decent soldering iron and learn how to fix them. Usually the connection goes bad inside of the casing near the plug part where the wire is connected to the connector.
