WARNING: The facility should be properly ventilated, you should wear safety glasses at all times while installing your pickup. Do not use all lead-based solder. We recommend 60/40 rosin core solder. Please use caution when using a hot iron and make sure all smoke alarms are operational. An unattended soldering iron increases the risk of fire and serious injury.
