My LTD MH100qm has a 3 way toggle switch, and almost all the time when I switch to the bridge pickup from the neck pickup, it sounds REALLY weak, as if I turned the volume down. Is there a fix for this?
This is what the guitar looks like:

The switch or one of the contacts is probably weak or broken. Open it up and see if anything is visibly frayed or damaged. You can post a picture here if you'd like another set of eyes on it.

If you are able to solder, re-flowing all the contacts doesn't take too long and will probably fix the issue.

Nothing sticks out at me, but that doesn't mean much. You can try wiggling the contacts while it's plugged in, see if you can find one that cuts in and out as you move it.

so, it should never sound that weak, but generally a bridge pup is weaker because strings at that area vibrate less compared to the neck pup where strings are vibrating far more freely. it is very common bridge pups are raise to combat this and neck pups are lowered.

Yeah, you might just have to raise the pick up if there are no electrical problems.
