My pickup selector switch was actin up this afternoon.

I took the 9v battery out and stuck it to my tongue.

A friend of mine looked at me like I was crazy.
Shes never seen this before.

Am I the only one?

Doesn't that zap you?


That's the point - you're checking to see if the battery is flat. Zap means it's fine.

I do it, its the only way to check if there still alive

...because connecting something to them and seeing if it works doesn't determine whether or not they are still giving off a voltage...

My pickup selector wasn't working correctly. I figured the battery was a good place
to start. The switch could of had a bad wire.

its testing if your battery is flat - or your pickup is broken or something
#19
How exactly is it broken?

If it works, but not in all positions ---> Check connections from pickups to switch
If there's no sound at all ---> Check all connections and battery
If the sound cuts off, but comes back on when you move the switch around a bit ---> bad connections within switch

Thankz

It was doing everything a guitar did once when my pickup switch died..
but it was just the battery. I was surprised..the tone didn't suffer at all.

I personally don't do this due to not knowing female friends.

Well, start using your tongue and maybe that'll change.
