Well this is a bummer. I just got a brand new Ric 325c64.

I have had it about 2 weeks. Today while jamming switched the pick up selector to the bridge pick up for some jingle jangle. Heard zzzz zzzzz scratch and nothing.

Middle and neck work fine. Tried new cords, different amps, nothing.

Removed picjguar to take a peak. Everything looks brand new and as it should. I have no idea. All solder points look good, harness looks fine.

Any ideas? Please? I have a bunch of other Rics and this has never happened. Especially only owning the guitar for two weeks!

Could just be a bad connection at the switch, try running a bit of fine sandpaper through the contacts.

No! Not sandpaper - a pencil eraser to remove any corrosion. Once you remove metal, you can't get it back!

Just going to bring it back to the Ric authorized dealer where it was purchased on 3/10/2016. Do not want to mess with the tricky warranty guidelines and possible voiding.

Most likely it is the switch. Let us know what failed.
