I have a schecter omen active and when I'm plugged in and playing and I use the pickup selector the clicking of it is very loud as I push it down. Any ideas on how I can fix that?

Ok, you've probably got a short in the switch or it's dirty.

The cheapest option is to take it apart and clean it (electrical contact cleaner is best, WD-40 and some work with a cloth is fine) and then re-solder the contacts.

The slightly more expensive but still cheap option is to just get another switch. They're not expensive and a new, better switch will almost certainly fix the problem. Then you'll have a more durable switch (OEM part is probably cheap and worn) and you won't have to worry about it for a long time.

Most expensive is to take it to a tech and have them do one or both of the above. Soldering is easy to learn, and even buying an iron and a bit of solder is going to be cheaper than a bench fee for a tech, but if you're really not comfortable replacing the switch yourself, a tech should be able to fix the issue without too much fuss.

Check the wiring, if that's fine, consider buying a new switch. . . Schecter isn't exactly th best brand. Always talk to a guitar tech first though.

If that's the kind of advice you have to give, don't bother.

Alright thanks, depending on how hard that will be then I might just ask my friends dad

Piece of piss if you can solder. If not, ask a friend that can (or in your case your dads friend) and sit and watch with him how he does it.
