Well, I fixed my first guitar yesterday. A friend had.... blew chunks on his guitar (ewwww) and it hasnt worked right since. I plug it in and I get nothing out, well that give me a place to start looking. Takes me one and a half hours to take it all apart and desiring it. (whammy bridge, and a tremolo) I go through and check all of the pickups to see if I have single from them; those work onto the electronics. The five way switch works and the tone knob works, that leaves the volume control. I text him and tell him whats up and I give him the option of replacing it next time I'm in town to pick one up or just bypassing the volume. Guess what he chose. One wire cut and twenty seconds of soldering and the problem was fixed. It then took me another forty five minuets to put it all back together and restring it. I was proud. Works great now. I also get a few days to play around with it until I have to give it back. Just my little rant for the day.
