Pickup switch Problem

Hey guys

Recently my JS 1000's pickup switch won't stay on the bridge position at all! Whenever i try to pick the bridge pickup it just pops back into the middle position. I can pick the neck pickup just fine, but its like its not catching when I try to pick the bridge. Any ideas? This thing is only about 4 months old, with really only a months worth of daily usage.

Sounds like the detent for that position inside the switch is either bent or broken. Sounds like time for a warranty switch to me.

It will have to be done by a licensed service center or the distributor.
