Question about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Pro Electric Guitar Ebony
It seems that your 3-way switch is suffering from bad contact. Well, there are three things you can do:
1 - Take the guitar to a service representative and have it repaired,
2 - If you are proficient in the use of a soldering iron, you could desolder it from your guitar and replace it for a brand new one (do not forget to take notes of the cable colors and where they are soldered before removing it), and
3 - Try using a contact cleaner spray to clean its contacts.
The contact cleaner spray is a spray can filled with special formulated chemicals and/or gases that helps cleaning the switch and pot contacts. It generally comes with a thin tube that allows you to insert its tip inside the switches or potentiometers and spray its contents exactly where it is needed. While spraying, move the switch rocker or potentiometer cursor from one side to the other, allowing the fluid to clean the contacts, removing any debris that might be located there and originating the bad contacts that may be causing the scratchy noise you hear..
These contact cleaner sprays can be found in most hardware stores, electronics dealers, and hobby shops or even in the Internet, from different brands (3M, Polywater, MGC chemicals, CRC, etc ).
Hope this may help you put your Epiphone to scream loud and clear again...
