Question about Yamaha Electric Guitar
I've just purchased a Yamaha EG 012 Guitar and a Yamaha GA-15 Amp as a kit. I've followed all the instructions and plugged everything in, adjusted the volumes etc and it wont play through the Amp. When you turn the Amp on, it just buzzes
Have the same make guitar and amp, im sometimes confused too and often have the same, but its always my mistake, depending on clean or drive setting you have to use other volume control, make sure you return all pots to 0 before connecting/disconnecting/power on or off.. connect everything while off, turn on amp power switch, use clean setting, open clean to say halfway, put the 3 bands 2/3 open or so, then slowly adjust guitar volume dial from 0 to 10 and strike, sometimes I dont hear anything and then I lower guitar dial to 0, then change the 5 stand setting on guitar, then raise volume again, and it works, then if I change back to the nonfunc setting on the discrete switch, it works now, so I think theres something digital going on in guitar....

The buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.
