    :meh: I have just been bought a bass (westfield, made in china (fender jazz copy)), after a five year lay-off due to moving house/area/job etc. Really keen to get playing again, but on getting it home it doesn't work through my amp. I have tried various lead experiments (which has included using different guitars etc) so I know that my leads/amp are sound and working, I have also had the "guts" out of the bass and cannot see any wiring probs. So why wont the ******* thing work!!! If anyone can help, I would be sooo gratefull, so would my six month old son, who is used to acoustic six strings but had never seen a bass and is wondering what noise is makes!!

    Keep it low

    Do you have any pictures? What is the setup of the bass (ie vol/vol/tone, etc.)? Have you checked what you have against a correct wiring diagram for your setup?

    You haven't given enough information for us to be able to give any help.
