    Hey, I have a Mexican made Fender Jazz and I'm having a problem, not sure what it is. When I play it through my Ampeg it only plays about a quarter of its usual loudness and it has this consistent high pitched whistle that increases in loudness every time I pluck a string. Help anyone?

    have you tried other amps? it may be the connection in your amp

    I was thinking that, but I don't have another amp to play through at the moment, going to a friends house to run it through his tomorrow.

    Sounds like the cord or amp, but to be safe I'd try with other ones, as said before.
  5. try using a different instrument cable, i know with mine i get an annoyingly lout buzz when i take my hands off the strings
