Hi there,

So I just got a Cyclone by Squier in a trade (my old camera for this) and the guy told me he had replaced the neck pickup with a tex-mex. Is there anyway I can verify that? Serial number of some sort?

Secondly, the switching between pickups is not as it is supposed to be. When im on position 1 I get neck only, but on position 2 I get neck pickup only again. Position 3 is working fine and getting me bridge pickup alone. How is this supposed to be wired so that position 2 engage both neck and bridge pickup and not only neck pickup?

Finally my volume pot makes some crackle when I turn it up or down. Anyway to get rid of this quick and easy? I don't have the skills yet to replace it myself and I'd like to save on labor.

Sounds like the wiring is wrong on the pup. And might need to touch up the solder joint on the volume pot and maybe ground wire. You should be able to find a wiring diagram on line really easy or maybe email fender asking for one.
