Question about Music
It has a twang to it like one sounds when its got a cheap set of strings on it and i cant get it to sound clear and crisp and im just wondering what the problem may be.It started with the old strings,so I thought maybe it was something wrong with them,so i replaced them with new strings (d'addario) but it still does the same thing in any switch position and i have even tried playing with diffirent amps and it does the same.
Check to see if your strings are hitting your frets. check your nut and bridge to see if there high enough to clear frets our pick ups.

if everything is standard on that guitar then the only reason that pick up wouldnt work is because its a defective pick up or a wire is disconnected. it may also be possible that the selector switch is bad. take a small screw driver and tap the pick-ups in all positions while plugged in to the guitar amp and the volumes up ( not all the way) just loud enough that you can hear the tapping. you find the bad pick up when you cant hear the tapping with that pick up selected.

se3veral things have to be ruled out, start with the cord that your using to your amp, is it good? next is the volume on both the guitar and amp also good, the last thing that should be wrong is the pickup itself unless a wire is broken off of it, you can usally check this from somewhere on the back of the guitar, if all the wires are good, check the two volume controls and on the back of the amp check the wires going to the speaker.

A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!
Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion

there is an open connection, most likely right off the input jack ,causing this issue. Resolder it or retension the jack connection.
