Has it just stopped working?

Have you tried with a different lead / cable?

Have you tried a different amp?

When you plug out the guitar and touch the cable end with your finger, do you hear noise coming from the amp? If no -> it's the cable or the amp, if yes -> a problem with the guitar. A typical problem is a broken wire to the guitar's output jack.

If the fault is not with the cable or amp it must be with the wires in the jack socket of the guitar.
One last check ... plug it in to a tuner if you have one.
If that does not work then prepare to unscrew and take a look at your jack socket wiring.
A bit of soldering repair may be needed.

Potentially silly question: have you turned up the volume control on the guitar?

That's a classic!
Once at rehearsal I had this muffled sound and I couldn't figure it out.
After fighting this for about 5-10 minutes while the band was patiently waiting for me, I asked the other guitarist for ideas. He asked if the tone was rolled off.....

If you just bought it a month ago, can you take it back to a local store? If mail ordered from Guitar Center (GC), I believe a local GC can repair/replace the guitar. Dave
