This is the only case where I have heard this problem come up. Unfortunately, I cannot speculate as to what may have contributed to the problem you are experiencing. The included gig bag does a great job of protecting the guitar, but if you are concerned about possible damage from being crushed with other gear, you should consider a hard case if you feel you need added protection than what a gig bag can offer.

Thanks for the reply.
UPS has the guitar and it's on it's way back. Don't know if anything will be obvious when you guys get a look at it.
I have not dropped the guitar, and have carried it out of the house probably only a dozen times, maybe four with a full load of amps, stands, and extra equipment that would pack the trunk tighter. So if this is the first failure of this type, maybe it's just my bad luck with an early switch failure.
When I get it back I probably will take it to a few stores to see what hard cases I can find to fit. Although the gig bag is light and handy to carry, so I'll just have to look around and consider options.
Again, thanks for the info.
