Nope....if you go to your local music store they should have an adapter for your situation.....it will cost approx. $10-$20 (depending on the company)

My Dean Dave Mustaine signature V will not produce any sound


It looks like you have 2 humbuckers (how many wires on each?), one 3 way selector and 1 volume and 2 tone controls, plus the output jack. Tell me how many wires on these humbuckers and what colors and I can help you wire it.

My double pick up Dean edge quit working while playing. I checked the wiring and all looks good, but three is s a black wire coming from hole to center of body attached to nothing. Looks like it never was....


Make sure you have two wires soldered to the output jack on the bass. having a wire lose is not purposely put like that, for no sound from the bass then that wire is either from the pickups and connects to the pots on the bass or on the output jack. I would suggest taking it to an authorized dean dealer to inspect the wiring.

I have a dean markley promag grand acoustic pick-up which connects to a plug in stap button. when i plug in there is no sound unless the volume is turned up on the amp to the max and then a very faint...


The output of this is fairly low. Do make sure you have steel strings rather than bronze for magnetic pickups like this. Make sure this pickup is oriented per the instructions.

I have a Frontman Fender 25R, it has a power, the auxilliary input is working (the RCA, red and white ) sound is produce, when I plugged an electric guitar on the 1/4 input there is no sound coming...


You actually have the "B" version as the original 25R doesn't have RCA jacks. Anyway, on with your problem...

I want you to do a test: With a set of headphones plug them into the preamp output and then play your guitar... don't expect much loudness, it may be very faint and will ONLY be in one of the sides of the headphones. This tests the preamp section... have the guitar volume wide open.

IF you can hear the guitar that way, then the switch contact on the PA INPUT jack (not the preamp output) is not making contact. These jacks are really poor and the problem is not that uncommon. Fix is to open the unit and increase the spring tension on the contact or replace the jack. Never use the jack as they worsen evertime you plug something into it.

Note that the failing switch symptom MAY be broken soldering in the vicinity of the jack so look for that also. And also check the soldering of the guitar input jack as that is a common problem. Always loop your guitar cable through the handle so tripping over the cable doesn't break the jack by yanking the plug sideways... another common problem.

Can i put my fender strat mexican guitar into number two jack on the ampI got it today not sure


The Fender Stratocaster (in common with all Fender guitars) has passive pick-ups so should be plugged into the no 1 socket.
Whilst it will work in the No 2 input socket this has lower sensitivity and is intended for use with guitars that have active (battery powered) pick-ups.
