I have a strat copy which I recently refinished. I had bought it off ebay, and the selector switch had snapped at the screw. I bought a new one, and have soldered it on. It's not perfect, but ok. Trouble is, now when I plug the guitar in, it is close to inaudible, and makes a very loud hum. This has nothing to do with the amp or cable as a nother guitar works fine. To even slightly hear the guitar, the volume and gain have to be at ten, and i have to use a pedal as a volume boost.

tl;dr my guitar is really quiet after installing a new switch.

why might this be? is it gonna be dead hard to fix?

Check your connections. You may have soldered something, but not had the wires connect properly.
