No output from jazz bridge pickup

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

You may have seen another thread here where I asked about replacing the pickup casings on my Squier jazz bass with closed ones. Well, I've done this and the neck pickup is working fine, but I suddenly have no output from the bridge pickup. I've no idea what I've done, but I don't really think its anything to do with the pickup covers. I don't have a meter to test the electrics with, but giving the pole pieces a tap with a screwdriver gives me no sound either. All wiring is intact.

Any ideas?

Check the wires and solder points. You may have inadvertently screwed through a wire when replacing the covers. Else you may have pulled the wires and loosened the solder somewhere, either wires from the pickup, or those attaching it to the pot.
