    Default jackson guitar troubles?

    first post here so sorry if this has already been discussed.
    i have two jackson guitars, one is a 1997 ke3 that i've had for 2 years and one is an rr3 that i've had for maybe 4 months-not sure of the year.
    anyway, the rr3's bridge pickup stopped working. the neck position works fine, but the bridge will only give me a split second of cut sound every now and then. i'm thinking that one just needs to be resoldered. then today my kelly went completely quiet, almost as if the volume was turned all the way down. i plugged in another one of my guitars to see if it was a problem with my cables but it worked fine. so would my kelly have something wrong with the import jack or its pots? i dont know anything about pots so sorry if thats stupid.
    anyone else have a lot of problems with their jacksons?

    No problems here. I have an old DK2R, an SL3, and a USA SL2HT, and I've had zero problems with the factory wiring. Of course, the Dinky and the Pro Series Soloist no longer have any factory wiring, but who's keeping score, anyway?

    Welcome to the forum! On the RR3, Im guessing your toggle switch is bad or you have a loose wire from the pup to the toggle..

    On the other, sounds like a loose wire to the input jack
    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    It could also be the output jack.
