Severe JEM problem...

Hey guys... um... my output jack isn't working.
At first I thought it was the cable, but I tried it in my Fender and it works. Is there a way maybe I can try to fix it myself? Or do I have to ship my baby away?

Stuff like that is very easily fixed, just pop open the cover on the back and look for the loose wire! Unless it's the wire from your volume control, in which case you'll have to take the strings off, remove the pickguard and ... look for the loose wire!

I don't see any loose wires. I think the problem lies in the cavity inside the output jack.

Never mind.
A set of wires is ripped from the metal part under the jack panel. I have to solder them back on.

Any tips or things I should worry about when doing this?

If you're not comfortable with a soldering iron find someone who is, but it's really not difficult work, I've been tinkering with the guts of guitars and pedals since I was 15. Just remember not to touch any part of the guitar body with the iron.

If you get really stuck you have the benefit of LGM Guitars being only an hour and a half away

Or his hands. IVe still got a nasty scar on my leg where I dropped it. It didnt hurt at first and the skin just turned solid white *immediatley* and about ten minutes the nerves just stood up and went *OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW*

If I lived that close, I probably wouldn't even play them!

That's sooo close! Yeah, take it to him!! take it to him!! Even if I didn't have a problem with a guitar, I'd still take it to him if I were that close.

There'd be a bit of, "ok, i want this done, then this, and this...Oh, and this too cause its cool, and that as well...and..and..."

A single bit of advice: one end of the soldering iron is hot, the other isn't.

Yeah, you can figure out which end is hot by touching it to the tip of your tongue*






*Not real advice
