Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, a Bass guitar would require a hefty amp quite different in terms of construction design to most guitar amps.

Offhand, the problem would be internal on the electronics board. Most likely culprit if it will power on but no sound would be the final/output transistors.

If there is no power indicator at all, then it would most likely be the power supply section.

Any competent electronics tech should be able to perform the repairs since the parts (to my knowledge) are readily available from most electronics parts stores including Radio Shack and **** Smith.


Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: which string used for epiphone gibson lea paul special II guitar

This is really a personal choice as long as the strings are made for an electric guitar there are hundreds of different kinds, it mostly has to do with the thickness of the strings and how the thinner the string the easier it is to manulipulate, you should go to a good music store and tell them what type of music you play and they will give you some choices.

SOURCE: LP epiphone 100 "g" string problem,

well, i have this guitar, for me if i bent the string it would pop off the nut, but it went out of tune on me also becuase of the tuners. so i suggest checking the nut to make sure the string sits completely flush in there, and than also just upgrading your tuners if you can and it will be fine. but deffinately upgrading your tuners would stop that hopefully but still could be something with the nut becuase i had both. tuners = machine heads

SOURCE: 9v battery wires came loose. peavey 5 string bass

The negative battery terminal will go to a black wire and that will be soldered to one of the volume control cases. That makes the remaining wire easy. The negative terminal pole on the battery is the larger round one.

    Cant get the buzz out of the high E string on my Epiphone les paul guitar


    A buzz on one string is not due to a pickup fault. It's rather a too low string height at the nut or a string slot that is either too wide or has too deep of an angle towards the tuner. It could however be that you had the pickup too close to the high E string creating excessive string pull.

    Epiphone sheraton 2 has broken neck tuner section


    That is near fatal... you might find a Luthier that could repair it. I have repaired three broken neck instruments myself, an acoustic bass, acoustic hollow body, and a banjo... it is NOT fun and requires great care. The strains on the neck from string tension cause a lot of force that tries to re-break the neck.

    This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?


    Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

    Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp


    Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

    Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

    My guitar has is an epiphone les paul but it also says gibson directly above the nut. what does this mean?


    Epiphone is a budget conscious gibson. And probably not made in the USA.
    1957 - Gibson's parent company, CMI, buys Epiphone for $20,000, originally intending to harness its upright bass operation, but ultimately reviving the Epiphone name on guitars. A full line of newly designed acoustics and electrics is unveiled in 1958, and two years later Epiphone production moves into Gibson's factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

    1970 - In the face of foreign competition, Epiphone production is moved to Japan. Through the 1970s and early '80s, the Epiphone line has little continuity, although it maintains respect as a quality import brand.

    1983 - Epiphone production is moved to Korea.

    1986 - Henry Juszkiewicz, David Berryman and Gary Zebrowski acquire Epiphone and Gibson. The Epi line is soon expanded to include traditional models like the Sheraton, Emperor and Howard Roberts, along with Epi versions of Gibson classics like the Les Paul, Flying V and Explorer.
