    I have a Hamer Slammer.. .looks just like a stingray, and I dont usually play w/ a pick except for a few punk riffs, but now, for some reason when I play wich a pick, sometimes theres a loose connection and theres no more sound goin to the amp, but i wiggle the cord goin into my bass and theres sound again - i opened the back compartment to see if there were loose wires or anything, but i am not sure what i am looking for, but from what I saw, i did not see anything loose.

    It only happens when i strum with a pick too :/ any ideas?

    i could be the cable, and not your bass, if there isnt any wire thats not soldered to something just resolder the output jack cables most cheap basses need that almost every year. Try Changing the cable
