Ive just been trying to fit my new seymour duncan invader (bridge) pickup into my Ibanez Ic-300. I'm really having trouble soldering the wires to the pickup selector (It's a one volume one tone guitar) because my solder wire is taking ages to melt.. but I think its because the solder wire is really really thick (about .5cm). I tried to melt the solder that was already on to use that but that didnt work either.

Have I got a **** soldering iron or is the solder wire too thick or what?

I'm a soldering noob sorry =[

both, the solder should only be about 1-2mm thick and your iron seems to be at the end of it's career
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

go to some hardware store and look for rosin-core electrical solder thats about 1mm thick. that should melt almost instantly

EDIT: damn, beaten to it
