    Trouble desoldering an SE

    Trying to replace the unreliable switch on my Zach Myers, and I can’t get the darn thing desoldered! What the heck do they use? I’ve got a 400°F iron (this Solomon from StewMac) and am trying to wick the solder off to no avail. I’d cut the wires but there’s zero slack, and I’d have to rewire...

    Help with wiring Lollar Imperials into a Custom 24

    Just purchased some Lollar Imperials and I am comfortable enough with the soldering, but I have no idea what wires are supposed to be soldered to what lugs.

    PRS SE 245 Soldering to the wraparound bridge

    Wiring Help! SD 4-Conductor in a SE Custom 24

    Hi all, New to the forum and new to doing work myself, but I'll be damned if I don't try to learn how to take care of my own instrument. I'm decent with a soldering iron, so why not replace my own pickups? The issue is, I can't seem to find any wiring diagrams for putting in my 4-conductor SD...
