Futurama II Deluxe

Hi all,
I recently bought a Futurama II Deluxe.

First off - anyone with one of these, could you please tell me what the four switches are meant to do, just to make sure mine are wired and working correctly?

The top pickup has a 5mmx5mm bit of plastic cracked off the corner of it, exposing a bit of the copper inside the pickup. I think I could make something to cover this cosmetically but would this be a problem technically?

Also, electrically it is a bit intermittent. Thinking this could be the jack, which I could replace myself but how would I test to find out what was working properly, and what wasnt? How would I test to see if the top pickup was working 100% ok?

Finally, the switches and volume pot are all a bit crackly, any tips on cleaning these?

Thanks for any help!
