How To Solder Your Guitar

My New Craigslist 2001 MIM Standard Stratocaster

Picked this up two weeks ago off Craigslist for $200.┬áThe seller bought it new at Guitar Center in 2001, drilled two small holes in the pickguard and one in the body for a midi, then never played it. It’s in great shape and I love the neck (doesn’t seem as glossy as the newer ones). I had been debating new MIM vs new American Standard but this was too good of a deal to pass up. My first Strat.
