If you guitar is RoHS compliant, use lead-free solder. If not, stick with regular solder.

Just use electronics solder, it can be picked up at any radio shack. You do not want plumbers solder.

Just replace my humbucker yesterday. Used 60/40 rosin core solder. Worked like a charm! What ever you do, do NOT use acid core. It is for plumbing and will corrode your electronics.

And don't use solder that has the water soluble flux in it. It washes off nicely, but it corrodes as well if you don't wash it off completely.
