Strat 5 Way Selector Problem


Recommended Posts


I've just replaced the 5 way switch in a friend's Squire Strat Affinity. The original switch had started crapping out like the cheap switches do.

I bought one of the Oak switches off WD & followed this wiring diagram off the Fender site.

Right then... now on to my problem. The selector works in all positions & selects the correct pickup(s), but there a click & the sound drops out for a fraction of a second whilst switching.

I must have done something daft because I just tried using the volume pot & that also as a slight noise when turning it & the sound also drops out for a fraction

Any thoughts? I'm sure it's something obvious.. But I thought I best check before I take it to bits again.
