Well - for once I guessed what the problem might
be and was correct. Never underestimate the
power (literally) of a good ground connection.
I sanded away all the paint down to bare
metal and re-attached the ground connection.
Bada Bing!! Music!! Even though the amp came
on before, the power was exceedingly low with the
poor ground connection.
