Something wrong w/wiring on my JS1

I was playing my JS1 today and making adjustments to the pup height when I noticed I was having issues. First when I turn the volume all the way up it'll cut out or the volume just gets lower. When I engage the high pass filter I just lose volume altogether. When I touch some of the wires I get lots of humming particularly the wires soldered to the pup switch and the input jack is crackling. Right now I'm thinking I need to just disconnect everything and rewire. I had a friend do it so I'm not sure he used the right materials. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it helps the reason it got rewired is I had a PAF Joe installed in the neck position. I can post a pic of the control cavity if that helps.
