Hi Rene,

Sounds like the selector may be the culprit. Try wiggling it back and forth while strings are ringing to see if you loose sound. If so, easy fix with an new selector switch. However, if you don't know how to solder and read a wiring diagram for your set-up, you will have to take it to the shop. Shouldn't be more than 50 bucks though.. smile.gif

Then it must be some kind of contact or dust in the switch. Just wiggle it around a bit, or spray some contact spray in there, it should be fine.

I had the exact same problem, but reversed. Bridge was fine, but neck didn't work 100 %. Luckily I'm a good friend with the local luthier so he fixed it for free biggrin.gif

-edit- And he solved it by spraying contact spray.
