    If I may, (I may have mentioned this a dozen times) I find 63/37 solder to be an excellent choice for wiring guitars. It's either molten or solid, there is no plastic stage like 60/40.

    Dude. :D Just because my neighborhood TV repairman taught me how to solder 30 years ago doesn't mean I'm not still learning too.:thumbs:
    The 63/37 eutectic solder this was something I picked up on another forum. My contribution may well be shielding techniques and silicone insulated wire. :cheers:
