    I need to solder a new input jack into my back-up bass for tonight, but I don't know what material to use to solder it. I know lead is commonly used to solder but I didn't know if that would conduct properly in this situation. Any suggestions?

    just make sure to get rosin core and not acid core solder, and you'll be fine

    you have only got lead based solder anyway, real makes no difference as long as the metal have atoms with. 1 electron in the outershell, by the way lead has this.
