Soldering - Tinning and Splicing Wires

Lucas Fowler 43 lessons

In this section, we'll cover how to "tin" the wire in order to prepare it for splicing or attaching to a pot, jack, terminal, etc.

We will also look at how to "splice" wires, which is simply connecting to open wire ends to each other. This can be very helpful when dealing with installing pickups.

Remember metal conducts heat very well so be careful not to burn yourself or your guitar!
