Got this jazz in trade and it has output issues sometimes
Gee... What's wrong with this picture? Grounding the output jack would've been a good idea. Attachment 361099

Looks like the stock MIM J bass wiring to me. Here's a pdf of the MIM service diagrams from Fender. There is a control plate wiring drawing so you can see what you should have in your bass.

That's odd. I grounded the output jack and the problem went away. Now I'm wondering if the problem will come back.

It is grounded through the control plate, but grounding it could help if there is any corrosion between the output jack and the plate. What is it doing when you are having problems?

Maybe one of the experts can help you with what's going on. There are several grounding points in an MIM and with just a sudden stop of output I'd have guessed grounding or maybe a loose jack.
Sounds like you got it taken care of though.

It was loosing allot of output. It started doing it again. Common denominator seems to be the irig stomp. When I plug it in to the irig it does it. Plug it straight to the amp and it still does it till I knock on the control plate then it's fine until I plug it into the irig stomp again... None of my other basses are doing this though lol

If you smack it and it works again you have a NEARLY broken wire in there somewhere OR a bad pot. Give each wire a yank at the solder joint until you find a broken one. If not, work the pot to see if that's the problem
Plugging into the irig is just councidence.

You have a bad connection somewhere, it could be a cold solder joint, dirty/bad pot, or a wire shorting out to ground.
