    Jack connectors failed, probably having wobbled loose for ages owing to a loose nut. Bah. Now I have to re-learn how to solder (as I was telling Geoff over in his epic cab thread).

    But for the moment, until I figure that out, my personal version of Red House goes "I've still got my RG550! Look out!"

    Fortunately I can teach you to solder a jack via the intertubes!

    - Melt goopy stuff
    - Tidy up wires
    - Stick wires back on
    - Re-melt goopy stuff
    - Destroy the world

    ... when I can "sodder" a new volume pot into my Phantom Blue RG, then I can destroy the world.

    There's nothing wrong with that pot, I just want to change the knob from knurled metal to a coloured plastic one for aesthetic reasons.

    With Chris' help, and this post here on another forum, I made the guitar work. It took me several hours and numerous attempts, but now I am

    ...and continuing the ...

    I went to swap the wangbar with a different screwdriver than usual that is not magnetic and have now lost the "spring lock screw" (2LE2-16) somewhere on the floor.
