I just bought a used Frontman 65R.  When I turn it on, it is quiet as a mouse, as soon as I plug a cable into it, even with no guitar plugged in, I get the obnoxious 60 cycle hum.  I thought I bought a pretty good cable, but maybe not.  Any thoughts?  I know it's a Fender, but I'm among friends here, right?

Thank you.

Any/all your guitar cables?

If so check the amp ground connection very carefully. Something's wrong and you don't want to find out the bad way.

Could be something simple but worst case is that it's the transformer.
