Ive been working on one of my guitars and came across a problem where one pickup didnt work at all and the other had very low output to the point where it was aclean tone on the overdrive channel. I fixed the pickup that was producing no sound at all by switchibg out the pots and it now produces sound, but it now also has the same problem of its very very low output. Would a bad pickup cause both of them to go out? Ive checked all of the wiring several times and its all hooked up correctly, I changed the switch, the pots, and even checked the jack. Please help.
Have you got a multimeter? If you haven't, a $10 cheapo will serve OK as a circuit tester.
