It just arrived. brand new in the box Epiphone thunderbird pro 5. I was drooling as i unpacked it. My Mesa Boogie bass 400 was warmed up and waiting. A quick tune up and plugged it in. The wiz from the pre-amp was so bad i had to unplug it. So here we go. Checked the cord to the amp and changed it. No difference. Changed the speaker cable to the 1000w david eden 4x10 cab and no difference. Whats next? $100 bench charge to tell me theres nothing wrong with it? I feel like throwing up..... :(

First problem...you bought an Epiphone instead of a Gibson, but you may want to try better pickups. Sometimes the clones give you a great look and feel but the electronics aren't up to snuff.A.D.30 http://www.ad30.org
