New Fender Elite Preamp Dead?

    Wondering if anyone has had any issues with the new Fender Elite Jazz basses? I got a new one about 8 months ago and it has not held up to gigging very well. The other day the preamp side crapped out, which I thought was just dead battery. Swapped the batteries out....nothing...just the passive side works. Took it to my tech and he couldn't immediately see anything wrong so he's waiting for a response from Fender.

    Anyone here have any ideas? I'm guessing the preamp is dead which would be bizarre, or maybe something got messed up with the stereo jack?
