Hey, has anyone had or fixed a short in the pickup selector switch? I've got this horrible scratchy sound when switching between pickups. Also get alot of hum which goes away when I touch the strings, pickups, or switch.

Just looking to see if this is common, or tips to fix before I dig out my soldering iron.
TIA

I will have to triple check, but I think it's just a standard switch and a shot of contact cleaner should be a good start.
