1 Jack Skellington 1 year ago Fender 1952 AVRI telecaster bridge pickup fades out and won't come back until I open up the controls and pole around then it works again for ~15 minutes until it fades out again. Neck pickup works fine. I've resoldered the pickup connections to the pots and switch 3 times so I don't think it's a loose connection. I've measured the bridge pickup on a multimeter and it reads a nice steady 6.91 so I don't think it is a broken wire. The pots work for the neck pickup so I am guessing it isn't the pots. Cap between vol and tone pots seems ok. If a wire was pinched or something I would think the bridge pickup wouldn't work at all. But it does for about 15 min and then 15 seconds of fading out then nothing but a very faint trebly rasp when at full volume and tone all the way open.I'm stumped. I'd just redo the whole thing, but I really love the sound of this guitar when it is working and hate to change anything I don't have to.It's been more than 2 years now of thinking I finally fixed it only to have it happen again and it sits for a few months and I try it again with same result.Any suggestions appreciated.
