For some reason, the pickup on my Epiphone sg g-400 is acting really weird. I think it's the bridge pickup (all I know is that it's the pickup the guitar uses when it's set to treble). They're the standard pickups that came with the guitar (Alnico classic humbuckers). The problem is that when it's set to treble, I'll have that nice bright distortion (perfect for playing some early Megadeth), but then it's like someone just turns down the volume almost al the way down, leaves it for 30 seconds, then turns it back up. It's pretty annoying. Anyone know what the problem is?

sounds like a wiring problem, i had a SG 400 that did the same thing, if you can get a new set of pickups and have all the wiring a jacks replaced. IF you dont do this you most likely will have the same problems over and over and over.

I have a similar problem on one of my guitars

I was told it's most likely either a loose solder joint or a bad/dirty pot. Open up the control cavity on the back and take a look inside for any loose solder joints.

I had a similar sounding problem on my Epi Paul, except it was the neck. Clean the connections or look for a loose wire. It might be hard to find but it seems like the answer.

That's exactly what I had to do too. For some reason it works fine now but it wouldn't be a bad idea to clean the connections anyways.

Flicking the switch back and forth seemed to do the trick for now.

sounds like a dicky switch. i had a similar problem on my epi les paul - it sounded like the volume knob was turned way down low.

epi switches don't have a very good history. replacing it should do the job.

Same thing happened to my g400. I had to re solder the input jack.
