Disassembling A Stratocaster


Recommended Posts

Hey

This is my first post, regarding my first guitar project. I am stripping down a Squier Strat so that I may paint the body. I have taken everything off except the electronic. I soldered off the ground wire on the tremolo claw, but I am hesitant on the other two wires still attached to the body. The are coming from the output jack. Are these safe to solder off? Thanks!

The short answer is yes...one wire should be to ground and the other to the contact.Just remember where they go ,so you can reattach when ready.

You shouldn't be in any danger at all while soldering a guitar, provided its not plugged in. If you have a guitar with active pickups (I'm assuming you don't, if you have a stock squire strat), then you should disconnect the battery before doing any work. You could get shocked... It won't hurt, but its kind of annoying lol.

Diagrams, drawings and/or photos are always a good idea before you start or jump into any wiring project. Good luck!
