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.

    What year is my epiphone serial # 101102936 made?

    Vintage numbers from 1932 to 1970 are now supported. Serial numbers from 70' and 80's era Epiphone guitars made in Japan are not supported. The reason for this is that there is no reliable documentation from this time period. This Module has been updated to work with the newer serial number formats.

    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.
