No Sound From Bridge Pup.


Recommended Posts

I have a Epi Les paul. The bridge pickup just stopped working.. (actually it does have a slight output) I inspecteted all of the solder joints and all look good. Any suggestions as to where to start?

Thanks, Bluetic :D

As usual...

1) unsolder pickup leads and connect them directly to a jack. If the sound is normal, the problem is in the pots etc.

2) measure DC resistance between pickup leads. If there are only two leads, you should see about 8k or 9k or anything close. 0 ohms or infinite resistance is a problem.

3) check all parts in the control cavity. If any one of them is failing, you might have low or no output.
