    i have 2 humbucking pickups witha selector switch, the neck pickup sounds fine both together sound sorta ok but when i go to the bridge pickup it distorts the amp like a crackling sound when i play hard but not in the other positions. Could there be something wrong with the pickup or the wiring? I changed the settings on the amp and it makes no difference.pickups are passive
