This is very easy.
- What happens when using both pickups at the same time? (switch in the middle position)
If everything works fine the problem is definitely in the switch.
If the pickup does not sound well in any postion the problem is the pickup.
When you identify where's the problem first thing to do is checking if everything is well soldered. Normally here's the problem.
If the problem is in the swich and everything seems to be well soldered I would just replace it. If you are going to do so remember to take good note of how the cables are soldered so you do the same.
If the problem is the pickup and everything is well soldered there can be different alternatives.
they've been going strong for the past 2 days now. but when it was cutting out in the neck position, it was still working fine in the middle position. i'll wait and see if the problem persists. thanks for all the input guys
