Hi,

I got a new guitar a couple weeks ago and up until now its been great. But a couple of days ago it started playing up. Whenever I switch from my bridge pickup to another pickup, when I go to switch back, it will cut out completely, but if I flick it back and forth a couple of times the bridge pickup works again (the neck pickup always works). Any idea what this could be? I imagine it's some sort of wiring problem, and if so do you think it's an easy fix? If it helps, my guitar is an EC-1000 with EMG 81 pickup. Thanks

I would put money on the switch being a problem. Most likely contact cleaner will fix it.

+3 on intermittent switch, just light spray of contact cleaner on the switch and move switch blade back and forth.. then wipe away excess fluid.
I have Washburn guitars 'Maverick Series' and bass 'Bantam Series' and a few pedals and amps, but man I wish to have more patience and drive practicing my playing, if it's equal to the modding itch, then I'm golden.

+4 on the switch. Contact cleaner could help, but if you're handy with a soldering iron a new switch is only like $10 - $15. It's a quick and easy fix.

Alright I'll have a look at the connections and if everything looks alright I'll get some contact cleaner, thanks!
