    Hey guys i was switching the battery in my jackson 5 string earlier today, and while i was taking the old battery out the little connector thing it hooks into ripped. It's still connected to my bass but the little socket that hooks to one of the prong things in the 9 volt is still in there and if i try to get it out it will rip the whole thing off.

    I figured i could just take it to a local music store and they would be able to fix it.

    But i figured i'd post to see if any one had a suggestion.
    I don't play my jackson a whole lot so it isn't that big of an issue i'd just like to get it fixed.

    If anyone has any suggestions thanks.

    If it is connected with the typical black/red wire doohickie that caps the 9v... if it's damaged it isn't a big deal to replace. Buy a new one at radio shack or what have you. Open the cavity of your bass, note where the original wires are run to and just replace it. Probably best to be a bit handy with a soldering iron. If you aren't have a friend or tech do it... no biggie.

    Good luck!
