    The tone switch on my Jagmaster pops out of the lowest setting and into the middle setting while I'm playing. Any ideas on how to rectify this would be appreciated. Thank You!

    Welcome to the forum!!

    When you say 'tone switch' do you mean the 3-way pickup selector? If you're hitting it while strumming that's just a technique issue....

    I saw the title and I was like,

    "You have my attention..."

    Lol... First thing I thought of was that maybe you were hittin the switch while you were playin... God knows we've all done that, lol... Or the way you hold the guitar, or sit with the guitar, it could be rubbin against ya... I've never played a jagmaster, and I have no idea about how you play...

    But, I HAVE also seen switches that have a tendency to favor a certain position, or get "sticky", that'll pop outta place...

    I think these are not open frame switches (where you can tweak the contacts with needle nose pliers). i'd clean it with contact cleaner (or whatever. even WD-40) in the short term while you wait for a switch to replace it. I bet it took a hit from something and damaged the insides.

    Thank You all. I do not have to hit it while playing it just pops out of position on it's own. And yes, I did mean the 3 way pickup selector. Thank You all for your help!
