Hi, I haven't posted much here and mostly lurk. I did some searching but didn't really find anything that addressed my issue so thought I'd throw this up for some thoughts of everyone here who knows so much more than I do. I built a tele from a Saga kit last year and it came out pretty good, went together well and sounded good. I am using it until I decide what color American Special I want ..... but that's another thread..... Anyway, it's been functioning pretty well and I usually plug in and play for an hour or so and then unplug and put to the side in it's gig bag. I last played it last monday (one week ago). Today I picked it up, plugged it in and nothing!!! When I plug in you can hear the noise of the jack going into the plug-in point but no other sounds, not even any hum. I tapped the pick-ups (you know like the Fonz with the jukebox, just hit it to make it work....) and took the switch plate off, we tapped on them lightly and were able to get a bit of response but again nothing in the way of sound thru the amp. So, I just was wondering what should I look for now? Should I take everything apart and check the wiring? Everything was tight at the switch plate but I haven't looked at the pick-ups yet. I know nothing about electrical things - I could take it to my local store but thought I'd give it a try myself first. It seems odd in that I played it, put it away and then it doesn't work now. Do pick-up and switches just go bad all by themselves after awhile? Ah, another excuse to go to my FLGS and look at the Teles.....thanks in advance for any help/thoughts for me to try.
