I have an Ashton AG131 for 6 years now and it has started showing its age. It has HSS pickups and the bridge and middle positions are gone. So, would it be worth to replace them with new ones or should i just buy a new guitar? By the way, i'm kind of a newbie so any tips/recommendations are welcome.

Are the pickups really gone, or has the selector switch given up?

Bypass the switch - connect the wires from the pickup to your cable and hit some strings
