Well, it seems the neck pickup on my strat is dead in the water. I'm thinking the pickup itself had developed a short or something. If I switch to the neck position on the 5-way switch, I get dead silence. If I switch to neck+middle, I get middle only. This leads me to believe the switch is working fine. I opened the guitar up, and there's nothing obvious-no loose solder connections, etc. The connecting wire is braided, so it shouldn't have broken. Anyone have any ideas?
