No it has a very high melting temperature. You want tin/lead solder 60/40 or 63/37 with rosin core for electronics.

This.

I usually use 1mm 60/40 for guitar repairs and 0.5mm for PCBs.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Thanks guys, I got the right solder now...but ran into a bigger issue. I am about to create a new post for advice

I generally prefer 0.032 or 0.025 for solder diameter.
For doing ground planes or larger areas (like the back of a pot) I use 0.050.
430F is a bit high for hand soldering although most wave solder machines run at similar temps although usually a tad lower (400F or so).

Silver solder fucks all the old rules up though.
