    Hello there, I just bought an AM strat and the bridge pickup is not working! However the other positions are! I thought it could be a wire issue but I took pickguard off and did not find any issues on the welding or loose cables!! Any thoughts? I have pictures also!!

    If you have an ohm tester then check the ohms readings on the P'up in question. If it has no reading then there is an open and it will not work. Start at the ends of the wires if it's open then check at the solder joints where the wires connect to the pickups. If there is a reading there then you need to reflow those solder joints. If it's open there then you either need a new P'up or have it rewound.

    They are generally referred to as multi-meters. At least, over here they are.

    Set the meter to 20x, then put the selector all the way forward ( pos. 5). Red tester lead on the wire from the pup, black on the back of a pot.

    Should be around 7 KΩ.
