I did a search for this and i couldnt find anything although i recall a thread i read about soldering irons people like and were using, so if anyone knows of this thread, let me know. But i have been using my girlfriends fathers soldering pencil for too long and its time to step up and buy my own. Im not looking for anything super pricey, but something that is quality that will last me my life. I also dont know what wattage you guys recomend for doing guitar work. My parts for my series/paralell mod are in the mail and i would like to start this off with my new iron.
