My custom built strat has a Seymour Duncan Cool Rails in currently, unfortunatly at my last rehearsal the pick up suddenly had very low gain while playing.

Loose wires i hear you say - i have since checked and re-soldered some of the connection.

I thought it was all fine and gigged with it - half way through this did the same thing producing very low volume (i changed to a different pickup quickly which is fine)

Went back to the guitar at the end of the gig - all working fine.

Could anyone suggest any ideas or anything to specifically look out for when i take the thing to bits AGAIN tomorrow.

Right, ive had a test today (started of not working) I hit the pickup with the palm of my hand and it started working - would you say that it is the pickup that is failing?

Ive taken it apart and put some contact cleaner on, when putting it back together i have found if the E & A string hit the pickup together - it dies!
I since cant get it to work by hitting it. Does touching the pickup with 2 strings cause a short?
