My RR3 Jackson Guitar has corrupt sound.

It may be the nylon strings are not compatible with your pickup. The pickups rely on varying magnetic fields from the strings to produce the sound- nylon is not magnetic unless doped with a ferrous material.

Either find doped strings, find a way to dope them or switch back to steel.

You can check the pickups themselves indirectly with a soldering gun or tape head demagnetizer held close to them- you will hear the line frequency quite well if the pickup is working.

My stratocaster wont do anything i think my mid circut board went out where can i buy just the board ive checked all my wiring and its good

Don't replace the board. Have a competent person check for bad component and PRAY it is not one of the pickups. Common failures are JACKS, POTS, and switches... they are cheap...Bad solder is common and it takes a trained eye to spot the bad joints. Heavier components are the ones that break loose.

I get a buzzing from the mic on my Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blend that stops when I revert to the pickup only. The buzzing becomes less when I touch the circuit board of the preamp underneath...any ideas?

This is a grounding and shielding problem. It is unknown what type of guitar you have but if there are other electronics, they need to be grounded to this device ground. Any source of magnetic fileds can worsen problems. Transformers in amps, etc. Solid body guitars have special shielding paint and you may be able to improve shielding by painting... just don't get it on circuit boards as it will short out the circuitry.

Whenever I touch anything metal on my guitar it buzzes, including the metal part of the 3-way switch, I have a Dean Vendetta, how do I fix this?

You have a grounding problem ! You need to BOND (electrically connect) all the metal parts including the cases and shafts of the volume controls and switches. OFTEN the cavity with the controls are painted with a conductive paint such as Aquadag or NicklePrint which is then bonded to the barrel part of the jack you plug into. Note, while this helps the buzzing due to touching the metaal parts, it will not eliminate hum if you get your guitar pickups into a magnetic field from transformers, etc.

My Dean Edge 5 bass stops working after 20 minutes or so. If I hit the strings hard, I can get it to pop and buzz a bit but that is it. Battery is OK. All wiring is solid. Amp and cables are all fine. The...

This would be characteristic if the battery is failing. Try a new battery. Batteries fade out and then they tend to recover if not used for a few minutes. The only real way to test the battery is with a brand new one. Try that first IF you have not done so.
One other problem is if the output jack is going bad. The jack is a stereo type and they use the ring connection on it to ground the battery to turn it on. If that contact gets marginal, then the battery voltage to the preamp collapses and sound fades out.
It is UNLIKELY there is a problem with the pickups causing this. A cracked circuit board could also do this but I don't think it would wait 20 minutes. Delays like that point to the battery. DO NOT believe any battery indicators... they OFTEN lie !!!

Depending on what the plate is made of the fix might be different. OFTEN the plastic covers really use a paint and one could repaint, however it would be hard to get as goo a finish as the original ones.

If the item is metal you could take it to a plating company to have it replated. RReal gold plating is usually only about 3 atoms thick.

When i put a new jack in my s series ibanez. It works for a bit and then fades out.

Check for poor soldering. Also the jack or pots MAY be physically turning and shorting to the black shielding paint that is conductive in the "WELL" with the pots and jack. If you find that a lead is shorting to the paint, put some insulating material OR tighten to prevent rotation that brings the lead into contact with the paint.
