Chopsticking is where you open up the amp, run the amp live, play through it (prerecorded loop is easiest), and use a wooden stick to move cables/wires around to see if the sound cuts in and out. It can help find intermittent problems.
The problem is severely high voltages (450V or more) that are instantly deadly, so only try this if you know how to work on live amps.
I'll let you guys know how it goes.

It really was a mystery until Emeric suggested that I disconnect all of the computer connectors inside and clean the contacts and re-seat them real good and make sure they were tight.
That was several years ago and it has never given me an once of concern since. It even came back to what I would consider louder than it ever was before leading me to believe I had always had a bit of a problem there.
This may not be YOUR issue but I would definitely start looking there if you open it up.
