Well, I've finally decided that I'm going to install the pickups I'm going to get on my own instead of letting ''the guy from the shop'' do it. im installing a seymour duncan custom (more than likely) in the bridge of my LP. is there any helpful hints that yo ucan give me to guide me through the process of my first pickup change?

thanks.

Trim the wire to length, make sure when you solder the solder becomes shiny, this shows a good bond. Tie wires together with zip-ties or heat shrink them so that the wiring is cleaned up. Shield your pickup cavities while you're in there.

practice your soldering before you attempt to solder the pickup

Double check your wiring diagrams for each wire as you go.

Don't leave the soldering iron in there for a long time. It can morph your wood...ha...so can a hot girl...but that's not the point!
