I have a bad input jack in my fat strat, should I replace it myself or take it to Guitar Center and have them do it? How hard is it to do it yourself, and how much will Guitar Center charge?

it's very , very easy.

$15 soldering iron kit (with solder) from radio shack or hardware type store.

follow directions on the pack.

not sure if you even need a new jack? or just heating the two connections.

but it's ground wire (usually black) to inner most lug.


dont worry about the writing on the pic.



here's a new jack, would be a couple of dollars.

60/40? and you'll want the iron to be like 30-40W around there.

You can use rosin core - in fact, you want to. Just don't use acid core solder, which is the type that plumbers used to use on copper pipes. Rosin core solder, when heated with the soldering iron, will remove oxidation and give you a good bond.
