must be the fluxcapicator... you're going to need new dilithium crystals.

Yes...that's it. You'll also need some Plutonium to power all that.

check your solder joints and make sure none came loose

Yes, the fluxcapacitor probably needs new crystals.
Save a trip to the RT!

yes you could go through all this trouble to type a witty comment, or you could actually help this person.

check to see if you didn't disconnect any wires
I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes HEY!

If all of the pickups on your guitar do the same thing - nothing - then you must've bumped something during the pickguard installation. Remove the guard and check for any broken wires. If you broke a wire, you'll have to fix it. If you don't know how, then take it to a guitar shop.

Damn, my output jack wire ripped. I can solder it back on if someone can tell me where.

Where the original solder was?

It was on the other end.

Google up a wiring diagram. It's your best bet.

You're going to have to remove the jack. There should be a cover plate over it, or a plate that it's bolted to. Remove it. Pull the wire through the rout and out the same hole. Look at the normally hidden side of the jack. See those two connection points? You might even be able to see some remains of the wire that once went to it. Strip back about an 1/8" to 3/16" of insulation and retwist the wires. Use your soldering iron to tin the wires, then reattach them to the jack. One of the wires is signal and the other is ground. The ground, usually black, needs to go to the connection nearest the point where the jack bolts to the plate it mounts to. The other goes to the remaining solder point. Reinstall the jack plate and you're done.

Got sound?
