I mean really! Mine died at seven months, there's a Deuce FS here where he mentions the cable has gone bad after only a few months, and I'm fairly certain I've heard about others.
It's a simple stereo cable. I don't get how they could just "die". Neither the channel selection or solo boost works. My local dealer said to check the solder joints on the angled plug, but they look fine, as does the other plug. I think I've only taken my amp out of my basement around ten times since I bought it.
Recently, I had a Gorilla (remember those guys?) cable die after 16 years service. The first ten of those it got used/walked on/tangled up/abused at least two to three times a week.
M/B can't find a supplier who's cable won't last even a year?
Holy smoke, my just died before my Saturday gig - it is less than a year old! At sound check that Stiletto wouldn't change channels - really screwed me up..I called Mesa and they are throwing in a new one but its going to take 2 - 3 weeks per Guitar Gallery!
