Ok, well I was trying to solder a jack on to a guitar, with solder my dad uses for copper piping when i wondered if there is a different kind of solder better suited to guitars. So yea, what kind of solder do I use?

I don't know if the solder your dad is using is specially made for his usage, but I just use standard, every day solder when doing guitar wiring.

That stuff is too heavy for electrical work.

You want Silver Solder from an electronics type shop. (Radio Shack?) or Maplins if you in the UK.

I thought so. I called radioshack and they said they have electronic solder, but i didn't know if that would work, that's what I'll use though.

Pumbing solder is just a metal alloy, the stuff you use for electronics has a flux (anti oxidiser) built in as well as being much thinner. Buy the right stuff and you'll be fine.
