I've been putting together a kit guitar. Saying I am a novice at these things would be a understatement. I was attempting to solder my p bass pick ups to the electronics and the wire that connects the two broke. So the pick ups are no longer connected by that little short wire. Is this a matter of simply soldering the the pick ups back together by the wire or am I screwed? I really really hope it's a simple fix because I bought these pick ups especially for the bass. Seymour Duncan quarter pounders. Also, if anyone can add input to this...are the pickups supposed to sit in the pickguard suspended from the cavity or down in the cavity? Does the height make a difference if they aren't flush with the pickguard? The pickguard I have now is about a couple millimeters too long of them sitting flush and it's stressing me out.
