    How to change pickups in guitar?

    I would like to change the pickups out of my wolfgang but have no experiene doing this whatsoever. Does anyone have any step by step help procedures they can point out to me?

    Also, my pickup selector does the weirdest thing now. When I select the middle position and when the strings are vibrating (during play), if I even delicately tough the pickup selector I get this horribly loud fuzz/static noise. This is NOT the case when the selector is in either the up or down position. Any thoughts?

    Hang over at the Pickup Lounge of the Duncan Forum for as long as it takes to get a feel for the job you want to do. Do a search on swapping pickups and read all the posts you can find. Then practice some on an axe you wont mind messing up. Do NOT learn how to do pickups swaps (or ANY guitar work) on your main axe.

    YOU WILL REGRET IT!

    Sounds like the ground wire is loose on your switch.

    Prob a good idea to check the hot wires to the switch also. One of the connections is loose, altho its kind of strange to only have a problem in the mid position. A multi-meter is great for tracking down bad connections.
