ok on my ibanez i've got a broken wire that connects to the jack on the guitar. Now I don't have a sadering(sp) iron so I can't fix it myself or else I would. So i'm wondering if i took it into a shop how much do you think it would cost to get them to repair it, or would it just be cheaper to buy the iron and do it myself.

It'd probably be about $20 at least. Guitar stores rape you for minor adjustments.

local shop might be a bit more merciful price wise. but thats about right.

if uve got 10 bucks u can pick up a soldering iron and some solder. fix it in about 2 mins.


and just wondering, did it break when u were hand tightening the nut on the input jack?

cause EVERYone does that once. doing it twice, is only for guys that never learn.



here is a photo i made to explain the correct way to tighten. and if u get an iron look for one thats about 35watts.
and 60/40 rosin core solder.

repost if u have any questions.

ok firstly, chicken, u need to solder it. u shouldnt just tape and tie up wires.
secondly, its not the solder but the spinning that breaks off the wire.
thirdly, take off ur jack nut and add a gripped washer. hold both ends and retighten.
