    Neck pick up problem

    Hello all,

    I have a Stingray HH and I just noticed yesterday that on the bridge pickup, the coil that's closer to the neck doesn't work. On any of the other coils, when i tap on the magnets with a screwdriver, I can hear the tap loud and clear through my amp. But on the "bad" coil I don't hear anything.

    I opened the electronics cover and checked with the multimeter and everything seems fine. Then I removed the pickup and measured the resistance and it seems that the "bad" coil is an open circuit.

    Do you think there's anything I can do to fix it or I'm I going for a new pickup?

    Follow-up question
    While I'm looking for a fix for my pick, I thought I would swap the neck and bridge pickups since I use the bridge 90% of the time.

    Anyway I took both out and I noticed that the magnets on the back side are further in on one of them compared to the other.
    But they both have the same model name printed on the pcb.

    Why are the magnets placed differently? Will it still sound right if I swap the pickups?
