S470 middle pu noise

Well, my 2005 model has a strange noise when pickup selector is in middle position the noise is somewhat reduced when selecting either position nearby and there is no noise at all when selecting bridge and neck humbuckers alone. There's got to be something with the single coil i guess. The pu's are INF1-INFS1-INF2. Any advice? Thanks

Re: S470 middle pu noise

oh, yes. and what about noiseless fender single coils or dimarzio fs-1. do they have the same noise as the stock ibanez has? Is it worth upgrading? Any recommendations welcome, thanks
