Well....



;=; I won't explain how it happened, me being stupid so one cord snapped off then the other. There is no way to reattach huh. I guess I gotta tell my cousin it snapped off while I was practicing or something..

I'm so screwed. Looks like i'll have to buy a new guitar. Maybe something in the 100-200$ range.. Anyone have any suggestions? This was a Schecter 006 Deluxe, my cousin's. He has like a thousand dollar gibson, so I guess it won't be that devastating but still, damn.. I was getting good at my smoke on the water solo (75% speed)


If you can't see, then it's the input where you put in your amp cable to the guitar.

You're not screwed at all. There's plenty of wire there to strip and re-solder. If you're nervous, a guitar shop could do it for you for a pittance.

Don't worry, if your cousin plays guitar enough, I'm sure he understands that things like this can happen and that they aren't anything to worry about.

yeah easy fix just get a soldering gun if you dont have one, you can pick up a cold heat for like 20 bucks, i got one and its perfect for this kinda thing, then you may need some wire strippers/cutters, another 2 bucks if you dont have one, and then if its really bad you might need a new imput, maybe at the most 10 bucks, its pretty much cheaper than getting a new one, and almost easier than trying to pick out a new one.

it's cool dude, just solder it. The hot wire is the white one and the ground is the **** serounding the hot wire...

Here's some information on soldering: http://www.kingbass.com/soldering101.html

This is the most basic electronic fix possible. All you need to do is match the wires to their correct place and re-solder.

Gee, looks super hard. Maybe my dad can help me re-solder it.. but thanks for the advice. It wouldn't get too complicated, right?

I might just take it to a shop; hopefully it won't be that much. ;-;

It's not. Re-soldering is pretty easy, and I'm sure your dad can help you with it. If you get the wires mixed up, then just switch them around again. It's not hard; 5-10 minutes tops, including soldering gun warm-up time.
Sincerely, Chad.

Trust me, it isn't hard to do. Your dad can solder? then if you count the time it takes for the iron to heat up it might take a minute and ten seconds, if you don't count the time it'll take the iron to heat up it'll be about ten seconds...

Wow, you guys are really helpful ;-; thank you so much. I was so scared I was screwed for life because of this.. this guitar's gonna be the one to help me complete my first solo

Thanks a lot. If we don't have any soldering equipment, I might have to be forced to take it to a shop. Is guitar center or sam ash alright?

i personally would take it to a non chain store, though i have never needed to have someone fix one of my guitars. im sure you know some one that can solder or something.

either place would probably be good, but they'd probably have the guitar for much much longer then the work will take. You could always just go to radioshack and pick up a soldering iron, some solder, and a de-soldering braid (for when you **** up). It's handy to have that stuff lying around anyways, but if you don't feel up to doing it your self and you don't know anyone who is then I'd be all for taking it to a shop...

I would be cheaper to just buy the soldering iron and solder. You can get a cheapo soldering iron at like walmart for 5 bucks and solder is like 2-3 bucks. Guitar center will charge you a arm and a leg unless you purchased the guitar from there.

So all you need is like $10 bucks a 24 hour walmart and the internet and you can be done and up an running before guitar center even opens..

Hell a good lighter and patience and you can probally get the job done for free lol

My dad doesn't want me to. I asked him, and all I got was "Too dangerous. Don't do it."
#20
get a handier dad if he thinks soldering is dangerous hahaha

if you don't solder it, try to strip the wires with scissors and tape the wires to the jack... cheap and free

yeah i didn't think it would work to be honest lol

just knock on all your neighbors doors until you find someone with a soldering iron. chances are you'll only have to knock on 3 doors max (assuming your neighbors aren't dicks)

Yeah man you're screwed, i think you should just send that guitar to me since its worthless now

Nah man soldering is easy as cake, the only thing you have to worry about is dropping or touching the iron against your guitar, and if that happens, will you deserve the pain of it! LOL
#24
ahhaahahahahaha your dad said soldering was dangerouS???

jeez man, does he let you play sports? ive shattered my ankle, and broken my collar bone etc snowboarding, definately never had any sort of injury from soldering lol.
#25
He lets me run in track cross country and wrestle people in wrestling.

That's some crazy stuff you got for injuries. :[ He agreed to soldering it though after I told him there was no way to fix it
