I have a problem with the pick up switch whenever i switch to a different pickup the sound is lowered i have to keep switching back and forth to make the sound at normal level! What could be causing this problem? What do i have to do to fix it? I have 2 volumes and one tone knob so i use the switch alot when practicing as a turning off and on sort of thing, no doubt this probably helped in causing this problem but whatever. The pick ups are active seymour duncan blackouts! Thanks!

Tried changing the batteries for the pickups?



Yeah i have tried that many times but no, i honestly don't think it's that!

could be a battery, definitely worth trying that.

could also be a dirty or dead switch. try opening the switch cavity and cleaning the switch with compressed air. if this, plus swapping the battery, doesn't work, it may be time to replace the switch or go to a shop.

not much to think about. a good switch is around $10 and, if you know how to solder, can be installed in a couple minutes.

It's probably a dirty switch.

Raise the pickup with the lower volume...?

Pick up a can of tuner cleaner from RadioShack. Pull the switch and spray it down. Try to keep it away from any plastics, it may not damage them, but why take any chances. If that fails, then replace the switch.
