This time it's a 1993 SL-X
Why not just have them fix it under warranty??Update ! The slx sounded great ! But , after playing it for more than 5 or 10 minutes it started cutting out in volume. Couldn't see a problem on my end ie. Guitar, cable etc so I took it back to l and m and got my money back after I told them about the issue.
Did you buy the additional coverage? One of our bass players bought a used SVT, it acted up, they fixed it (full retube) and it was alright after that.It was weird, the conversation kinda veered away from that, like it wasn't an option. Maybe there is more to it than I am aware.
