Alright, to put this in simplest terms, I'll have both pickup volumes on max, then use the selector switch to set the guitar to use only the bridge pickup. However, when I play, I'll notice a slightly warmer, cleaner sound than when I have the neck pickup silenced in the exact same config. Is there any DIY solution to this problem, or is it time to take it to a guitar tech?

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

Alright, I have the guitar like this

Neck: full volume
Bridge: full volume
Selctor: Bridge Pickup
Sound: Crunchy, but with mild elements of the neck pickup.


Neck: no volume
Bridge: Full volume
Selector: Bridge
Sound: Crunchy, no elements of neck pickup.

Neck: Full volume
Bridge: No volume
Selectore: Bridge
Sound: I can hear the neck pickup, but a very quiet version of it.

...do you understand how the pickup selector works? If you put it on the "bridge" side, then the bridge pickup is the only one working.

Yeah, that's the problem, I still get some sound from the neck pickup even with the selector set to "bridge". same with vice-versa.

Ah, my bad. Then you probably just have a bad switch or something.

Not really. If you set it to the bridge, then the neck pickup shouldn't make sound. Changing the settings on the neck doesn't change anything on mine when I'm on just the bridge.

Replace the guitar's electronics?

No, that wasn't what i was asking at all. I'd just get tone "bleed-through" from the neck pickup whenever I had the selector set to bridge.
