||Rickenbacker Pickup Switch|
Recently my 4003 Rick Bass has been crackling. I freaked and thought it was my amp. Then thought it was my cord. Ah ha! It's my pickup swtich.
It seems that when I play with a pick I unintentionally lightly touch the switch. This is the source of the crackle. Is this typical? Should I take the bass in for servicing?
Certainly the switch must be "make before break" type. Otherwise there would be a small moment of silence before switching pickups.

Try to clean it with electronic lubricant spray. It will probably help.

I sprayed television tuner lubricant spray on the switch. Now it works fine. Whew! I was not looking forward to monkeying with my prize ax.
