Hello all,

First time posting with an issue. I have a LP that is getting output from the neck pup in the neck position, both pups in the middle, yet in the bridge position, no output. I have replaced the old switch with a new Switchcraft switch and am still getting the same results. Does anyone have any advice on what to look for or has had a similar experience?

Thanks for any help!

Sounds like you need to trouble shoot what is making continuity and not making continuity apparently. Do you have a multi-meter, because this is essential to troubleshooting electronic issues? You can use this to verify the functionality of your components such as switches, pots, wires (connections), etc. Without this, you are basically throwing darts at a board with a blindfold on. Just asking first off to make sure we are on common ground and that you have the ability to properly assess the electrical state of the components within an electrical guitar.
