Quick question.

I'll be installing a new switch on a friend's Johnson Strat-style guitar. I've never done such a thing before, but I do know how to solder.

Is it just a matter of putting the wires that were already there in the same places on the new switch?

could I get just a brief explanation on how to do it?
