Hello!

I never had any problems with my Schecter Damien 6 guitar. It's a bit more than a year old I think. Lately I am noticing that sometimes, when I switch from either the neck or the middle position pickup to the bridge pickup, instead of the usual distortion there will sometimes be a "muffled", clean-ish "low volume" sound, which goes away (and the distortion comes back) after I switch back and forth between the pickups for some seconds. The same thing happens sometimes as well when I go from the bridge/middle position to the neck pickup.

What is exactly the problem here, does anyone know? Anyone had similar issues?

Come to think of it, I think I had this problem on my Gibson Flying V too sometimes before, within the past 6 months probably. The V's around 3 years old.

Thanks!

There's some loose connections on the pickup switch by the sounds of it. Open her up and look for some wires that are barely attached. Actually, it might just need cleaning. Yeah try some contact cleaner FIRST. Then do the other thing if cleaning doesn't help

^ This.

I had a similar problem with my Epiphone. The pickup switch had some loose connections. Easy to fix.

you should open a new thread, but you are already here. get some contact cleaner (deoxit) and clean out the switch. it happens from time to time on guitars. its happened on two of my gibsons and a wolfgang. takes two minutes.
