Question about Hofner Icon Series Violin Beatle Bass Guitar Sunburst
I've had problems in the past (4 years) off and on of no sound coming from the bass. Usually solved by just unplugging and replugging the jack. Did that last on Thursday and it stopped working. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot. I just replaced the jack but that didn't help. Thanks, John p.s. it's not the amp just thought I'd throw that out there.
If replacing the jack did't clear it up, and the cable and amp checkout OK, my best guess would be either a solder connection on the pots and switches, or a dirty pot or switch. I'd reflow all solder points and use DeOxit 5 on the pots and switches. Use it sparingly trying to flow it inside the components. Then operate the pots/switches a number of times quickly. Do your best to keep it off the finish. Do not spray it into the pickups.
