alright, did a dumbass thing, but when striping the wire to solder it to the back of the pot, i cut through one of the wires. all i need to do is solder to the back of the pot, but i dont have much room. its a Dean ML so its about half the size of my Les Paul. so i need some tips on keeping the soder on the wire and keeping the wire down without it coming up.
Hold it with a pair of needlenose pliers, that should do the trick. Or you could solder on a little extension wire and attach that to the pot.
