*Need Help

When I plug my Squier Strat into my VOX AD50VT it makes a hissing noise, with the switch in the bridge position. I also tried the neck positon and it continued to hiss. I put the switch in the 2 and 4 position and it was fine, no hiss. If more guitar info or amp info is needed I will post it. Can someone please help me out in fixing this problem?

BTW, the Squier Strat has a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the bridge and Seymour Duncan Cool Rails in the neck and middle if that helps any.

Thanks in advance!

This is normal for Strats. The Middle pickup is ususally reverse wound, so switching to the 2 and 4 position gangs a normal wound with the middle reverse wound pickup, effectively creating a humbucking pickup.
