go to the store and ask if you can watch him do it, tell him you're halfway through or something, pay attention to what he does, and you'll be okay.

So, they rarely do anything with guitars, but you were gonna take your guitar to them to install the pickups? O_o

If so, take a picture of your guitars control cavity, message me with it, and I'll walk you through the installation if you want.

i took it up there after seeing how easy it COULD be if i could read it, and i was gonna ask how much it would be, cuz 65 would be way too much, but instead he told me how pretty much, and i labled the cords.

i kinda know how to solder. i did my first today. i practiced on a toy radio before, but i soldered the pick up tho the volume control...the grounding was horible... but the wire part to the thing on the volume looked pretty good. i think it wa just the way the other one was..

now, theres only 2 problems, 1 severly stopping me from finishing. the small one is that the input jack doesnt fit in the holder. im sure i can stll plug in it and all... im still gonna fix it, but i dont have to for it to work...not the main problem, the plug going from the input to the pick up, theres a small hole for it to go through the body, but its too small for the batter thing to fit in. they already have it soldered on. and it looks like they dont want you to take it off. so my only option is to make the hole bigger. im prolly gonna have to go somewhere cuz i dont have anything i could do that with...

"Ever done any soldering? or anything with electronics? no? Take it to a tech."

so, no ones supposed to ever learn anything? with what you said, that means that no one can do anything new. or atleast not solder or anything electronical...what happens when the techs die?? whos gonna take over? i mean, if no one else knows, and they have to take it to a tech since they cant do it....therll be no more techs....no more soldering or electronics...then what????

You missed my point completely....

I am asking if he has done anything with soldering before

I am also asking if he has done anything with electronics before

If not, rather than **** up a good set of EMG's...it might be worth taking it to a tech.

Have you ever soldered a mod chip onto an xbox? Believe me... people dont "learn" on the real thing. They practice first.
