UV neck pickup output fluctuates

Hey guys,

Ugggh... so I just got my PSN back from HUSA a few weeks ago, the volume pot had a scratch in it that i couldn't mend with contact cleaner so they replaced both the knobs, re-wired etc....

Great, no scratching when turnin the knob.

So now the neck pickup on it has this fluctuating output. Sometimes it sounds normal, sometimes its almost a clean sound compared to the other positions on the switch when runnin out of a dirty amp. Sometimes it goes from one to the other.

Anyone know what the issue is?

This guitar has been such a problem for me, am i really gonna have to get more warranty service? My <$500 indo RG's have never given me all this grief. It's unacceptable that a 7k "built to the highest standards of Ibanez Luthiery" guitar has this many problems, wish i could go back in time and never got it so I'd have a jem30th and half my money back right now, but i digress....

:: sigh ::

Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

Sounds like a cold solder joint to me but who knows.
