Yes also the input jack seems loose - when you plug the guitar in some times it almost falls out but I'm not sure how to fix it. I'll have to see if I can get an input jack from somewhere, but where from? A supplier? perhaps....

First check the solder joints of the input jack on the circuit board - it is common for these to crack, and the jack will wobble around.

If you need to replace the jack itself (the original Fender ones aren't that good), you will need one of these :

but a bit of searching does not reveal a supplier in the uk. Cliff Electronics supplies them here in Australia as an Asian import, but Cliff in the uk doesn't seem to. Maybe another uk resident knows of a supplier?

THanks for the info guys, you rock! I'll take a peek in the circuitry tonight and survey the damage

Hey guys! I resoldered the input jack as indeed it had cracked solder as you rightly suggested. It now sounds much better, thanks!
