I have been a satisfied owner of a Silverburst Epiphone Les Paul Custom for a couple years now, but recently, I've been having issues with my pickup select switch. Often when I am playing on the neck pickup and I switch back to treble, it still stays on rhythm but with very low volume. It doesn't happen every time I flip the switch, but often at annoying times during jams or shows. Would I be able to fix this myself?

there could be a couple issues.

it could be a dirty switch, in which case a little compressed air should be enough to clean it. easy to do yourself. I've had this issue a few times

you could have a loose connection somewhere in the switch area. if you know how to solder, than this is also an easy fix.

it could also be a dead switch, and given that this is an epi, I suspect its the case (they're prone to it). you just need to swap it out. again, if you know how to solder, its pretty easy.

Pickup selector switches only cost a few $, you'd be better off just getting it replaced/replace it yourself rather than trying to repair it in some way that could later fail on you again. I've been through many selector switches over the years, I pretty much consider them disposable.
