Today when I plugged in my Gibson Les Paul 60s tribute my ears were damaged by the terrible sound uttered by my neck pup. It had a much quieter and somewhat crappy distortion to it. The bridge pup is fine and I've had the guitar for a little over a year. My guess is weak soldering in the neck pickup area but I'm no expert so I'd like some advice to solve my dilemma.

Thx in advance

Did you try turning the volume pot? Do a full sweep on that a few times (at least a dozen) and try again. Also if you can get some electrical contact cleaner try that as well.

Like going from 0 to 10 on the volume for that pickup. Sorry should have said knob.

Hi I've got a problem too. My pickups will sound exactly the same in the bridge and the neck. They both sound like the neck. Anyone know what's wrong with it?

Sounds like your pickup switch is malfunctioning, could be a wire though.

Btw, no need to jack a thread.

I agree. Sounds like your three way switch is having an issue. Take something metal (like a coin) and turn up both volume pots. With the switch up (neck pickup only) and the amp volume relatively low, tap on the metal cover part of the neck pup (or the pickup pole pieces if you have removed the chrome cover). You should hear a very audible click. Do the same with the bridge pickup (only) and then with the switch centered. You should be able to hear if both pickups and the switch are working correctly.
