OK so my Neck pup on my Jackson Kelly was phasing out due to a weak connection (wire was loose) so i re-soldered it. .
then when I plugged her back in no sound was coming out. . so i put new wires and resoldered the volume/tone pots and input jack

Now. . im getting a weak signal with alot extra feedback/noise with gain on. . it appears that everytime i touch the 3-way toggle the guitar comes to life. . could the heat from the soldering iron burn out the switch ?

I also lost the metal washer with ridges that goes inbetween the body and 3 way switch.. could this have anything to do with it. .?

help !

Yes and yes.

Also, double check all your grounding.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
