Yeah, its a real simple wiring layout. I don't see why you would have any trouble doing it, as long as you have the right equipment.

Good luck with it though...

first of all it's solder. Sawder is the American pronounciation of the word. and you solder the wires to the lugs (the three little bits that stick out). for volume you want the wire from the pickup/ selector switch/ or what ever you want before it, going to the middle lug. and the wire from the Jack to the hand lug (if youy look at it from the top (so you see the turny bit)) wire the last lug to the back of the pot.

One question: Are you really this clueless or are you just pretending to be?

1 - If you really are this clueless, take your guitar to a technician.
No good will come from you attempting this on your own.

2 - If you're only pretending, please go away.

then get some help in person,
before starting into work on your guitar or you'll end up with a mess.

internet help is limited in usefulness.
learn to solder before you attack the wiring of your guitar.

Agreed. Get a parent or the dweebs at the local Radio Shack to help you learn to solder.
