soldering is easy, but you should practice before you do your first soldering job http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X87Vt38ceSg&feature=relatedI've never soldered before, and am tired of spending money on pickup changes at a guitar tech. How hard is it to change out pickups? Specifically on a fender nashville tele!
thanks in advance guys.
Use a large chisel tip for soldering to the back of pots. A 40 watt iron, a chisel tip and a finer tip for wires and lugs is all you need. Just watch out for surrounding wires and caps. I've burned/melted more than I care to mention.One of the toughest things to get right is soldering to a pot, which is often where pickups connect. Problem is heat dissapation, and the pots take a lot of energy to heat.
I recommend making some small kits before you attack the guitar.
Someone recommended that DVD earlier in this thread, and i pulled the trigger and bought it! I'm not doing any soldering until I watch that whole thing!Terry Downs over at TDPRI has an instructional video which is superb.
He's recovering from a serious car crash but I think he's able to fill orders at this point.
