I have an Ibanez SA160 with 2 single coils and a humbucker, and a 5 way switch. When I switch to the humbucker, sometimes it doesn't make any noise unless I jiggle the switch a little bit. Is there something obvious I should look for to fix, or should I have a professional look at it?

its either a wiring problem or a switch problem both easily repaired with a little soldiering

Could be dirty contacts too!. You can buy electronic cleaner in spray form for this.

it could be just a loose wire on the toggle switch or the switch is becoming faulty, you can try opening it up just to see if all wires are connected good and none of them cracked.

either way its a simple easy fix any tech can do in two minutes.

It could be the volume is all the way down , but assuming that you're not that stupid it's probably wiring.

THANK YOU! I thought something was wrong with it!

Just kidding, it's only one volume knob and I know it's on. I'll get a tech to look at it.

Its dirty contacts on the switch. Just use that spray stuff and it'll be fine.
