Bet the title got you're attention didn't it?

Anyways, I took my guitar to the shop because the jack thingy was buggered, because one of the wires looked snapped or something, so it wouldn't play through an amp.

Is this a simple solder job? Or just a simple job altogether? IF it is, I'm not too bothered, but if he said it was proper ****ed up from the inside it would cost loads. Minimum cost is £15, so if it is simple how much do you think he'd reasonably charge me?

Happened to me and they repaired it for free?
Go back to the shop you bought it from and ask there saying that you bought it there, might be some kinda discount ?
It is only a simple soldering job, and if there is access from the back of the guitar, which im assuming there is, its a simple job.
Its always best to get it done professionally if you're not sure though, and I think you'll agree that 15 quid isn't much to fix your guitar when you want it so badly?

TL;DR Easily fixed, solder job.

Yeah, I think it was because I didn't want to **** it up if I did it myself, but just thinking it can't be anything more seriosu than a simple solder job can it?

15 quid is the going rate for a small rewire, but for a jack re-solder, if he's an honest guy, a fiver.
Time is a great teacher. Unfortunatly, it kills all of its pupils.

Ah.



Well, lesson learnt I guess. Although he does charge £15 minimum for anything

Oh well.

it`s a simple job once you know how to solder literally takes 5 minutes.

i could be as perverse as you and say "get someone else to do it for you".

Depends on your guitar too. If it's a Strat it's even easier to see/reach. Take off strings, unscrew pickguard, lolsold, put pickguard back on, restring, done
