I recently wanted to play my old Epiphone Les Paul (because it's in standard tuning, and my current guitar is in Drop B with .12s on it.)

When I plugged it in, I noticed the output of the guitar was abysmal, it sounded like it was halved. I switched it to the neck position, and the volume was as it should be, so the problem only occurs in the bridge position.

Is it just a problem with the switch, or did something (somehow) happen to the humbucker?

I had the exact same problem on my Epiphone. Your toggle switch is bad. Replace it and you should be fine.

first try spraying can compressed air into the switch while flicking, see if that clears out the dirt.

if not, like said, swap out the switch. under ten bucks.
