I have JV '57 Strat. Built date is 01/07/83.
I need someone to explain to me this:
First of all, keep in mind, this is 100% original so everything as it came from the factory 36 years ago.
The 5-way switch is odd, but I know some JV's came with it.
It works in the reversed way - if I need neck pickup I have to push it down (originally bridge pickup way). Same with bridge pickup etc.
Even stranger with middle pickup. At first, I thought it's not working at all but recently noticed that it has very very low output. I need to turn the volume all the way on my 60w amp to hear a bit of sound.
Is it something wrong with original wiring or just faulty switch?
