Hi guys. Its my first post so be kind to me I got a JV strat brand new a little over a year ago. For the past few months the bridge pickup has not been working. When it is selected, I hear a very faint, weak, barely audible sound. The neck, middle and neck/middle combinations all work fine. The guitar has never been gigged or been in a smoky environment. I just opened the cavity today (I know I should have done it long time ago) and checked all the wires and solder joints. Nothing is loose or disconnected. WTF? Took it to the local music store where a tech checked it out. He cleaned the switch but the pickup is still not working. He said the pickup is dead and that everything else is fine. Has this ever happened to anyone? I know some people have had to get a vintage pickup rewound but a relatively new guitar? If the pickup is indeed dead, what caused it? Thanks in advance for your expertise.
