    putting new pickups in a bc rich is like putting a v12 in a fucking GEO
    Storm. Why bother.?

    Soldering tweezers make life a lot easier when messing about with these
    tiny cables (tinning wires also). No need to take the pots out to get the
    wires into tight spots.

    Multi-meter helps a lot also. Once you’ve made a join, check the
    continuity. Just because you’ve soldered something in, doesn’t
    automatically mean it’s a good connection. I learned that one the hard way

    hi mr. tone king. I have a question for you. im preparing to buy a squire
    vintage jazzmaster I think it’s 3 or 400 bucks. I would like your expert
    knowledge on besides installing new fender pickups that are $139, what else
    in that guitar would have to be upgraded to make it like the 900 dollar
    fender and roughly how much would it cost ? my hope is that it will still
    be cheaper than buy the 900 dollar fender version. could that be the case
    mr. tone king ? thanks for our time… love your videos too. ….?

    my guitar works besides the neck pickup. There are 2 blues wires one from
    the big lightgray wire and big black wire. I’m afraid to put them together,
    incase it messes it up. any idea???

    Thanks for the tips, and for some pretty sweet guitar licks!?

    There is on important thing that I would have done before soldering—–
    and that is covering the area around where you are working with cardboard
    so no solder drops on the finish. Also, when you solder to pots, they get
    really hot and the heat will travel right to the tip of the potentiometer
    and if the pot is against any part of the painted finish of the guitar, it
    “will” melt right in and create a real mess of the guitars finish. I always
    tape cardboard around where I’m soldering to the guitar and I also pop the
    controls out to give me more room to move when I solder. I don’t have the
    steadiest hands so I prepare for the worst. Cheers?
