Epiphone Electronics

For the past 3 months, I've been unable to use my neck pickups on my Epiphone G-400 because the electronics wouldn't work. I hadn't had the time to take it to get fixed and had turned it into my backup guitar. I downtuned to Drop D, and fiddled around with it occasionally. Just last night I decided to attempt a killswitch kind of noise, with great success. However, upon doing so it fixed the issue I had been facing.

I was extremely happy, but now wondered what the issue could have been. Are Epiphone's switches and electronics known for being pretty shotty? What should I do to prevent this from happening again in the future?

The toggle switches used in many Epiphone guitars are garbage.

Switches on Epiphones suck. Replace with a Switchcraft.
