Ok so I was told I should learn how to do this myself.

Wiring:

4/5 of the pickup switchs don't work on my strat. I need to fix that.

The output jack puts out a lot of static when plugged in.


Intonation & Action

I need to set the intonation properly and lower the action coniderably.

I will be replacing the strings with .10's.



Please show me a site that has tutorials for ultra-beginners.

Or if you want to tutor me yourself I'd be fine with that...If you have aol or whatever..

Thanks guys

Intonation.

String height is pretty straight forward. Make sure you intonate AFTER you set the height.

That intonation page is a good one... as well as the others linked to at the bottom of that one. I learned how to setup my guitars from that and have had great results.
All my photobucket pics are dead so no links to my guitar build threads.

hmm...

I think string height (otherwise known as "action") is one of the most difficult things to do well. To really get it right you have to adjust both the truss rod (in the neck) and the bridge/saddle height. Personally though I do the adjustments myself; they're not that difficult or dangerous to the integrity of your instrument unless you get carried away (truss rod) torquing things to death.
