Ok so recently I've been realizing that when I first start playing, my bridge pickup sounds very weak and tinny, this also happens when I go from neck to bridge, it sounds very weak. It usually only lasts for a couple minutes like it's warming up or something? I have no clue. I've never had this problem before until just recently and was wondering if UG knows what's wrong with my guitar. Any help? Thanks.

and I have a G400 with Alnico V's if you're wondering...

Loose solder or a bad pickup switch. If you know anything about working on these sorts of things, take it apart and look at it's guts. Maybe a bad jack.

I really don't think it's the jack because it's only temporary and the rythym pickup works fine. It could be a wire or something but I don't know anything about that stuff

Your best bet will probably be to take it into your local shop and have a pro look at it. Fixing wiring is usually pretty cheap, unless your pickups themselves are bad, in which case it can get a little spendy, having to buy new pickups and all.

sound like a loose wire or possible a bad selector switch.

Don't get too extreme yet, Open it up and look around. If it all looks good without loose wires then clean the pots and pickup selector with cleaner first before you take anything off. Then you can desolder. In both parts don't forget an old T shirt to catch dirt, cleaner and solder.
Always tin your strings.
