That link only leads to the main site. Doesnt show any products. Let us know. You should get 15w minimum. I use 30w irons and like that heat.

I use a 25w, but I got it from radioshack and it was like $7 and some change, dont remember.
#9
That looks like a good one.

Would that be a decent gun to use for basic soldering?

If not, could you guys suggest something?

If anybody says cold heat, I WILL KILL YOU MYSELF.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

Have you considered a cold heat iron?

lol, but seriously, just grab any old soldering iron, preferably 20 watts or more. (not more than 40.)

The Cold Heat irons are terrible.

The Wellers IMO are the best at a cheap price range. You don't want a gun either, you want a pencil type.

whats wrong with the guns?? they heat up soo much faster, most of the time my pencil type cant melt into old solder if im repairing or re-wiring an older guitar and i have to use the gun. Also, a de-soldering iron is really nice to have.

^ seconded, but the guns are less precise.

Yup, that's why I don't want a gun. precision is everything when I want to work in a REALLY small space like anything guitar related.
#22

Antex has always been my weapon of choice, I've tried weller/hakko/oki/iroda etc. but I always end up going back to antex... They're slightly cheaper than the (branded) competition here too..
