Any advice for someone learning to solder electronics?
I'm both trying to be frugal and generally interested in/excited about learning to solder. My main goal is to be able to do a simple soldering job to put in new pickups in my Fender MIM Strat. The local shop charges $75 to put them in and it only cost me $20 to buy a 30 watt soldering iron, desoldering tool, 60/40 rosin solder, and a soldering iron stand. I'm also a little bit of a gear addict, so this probably won't be the only time I make modifications to one of my instruments.
Anyway, does anyone have any advice for me? I plan on starting with some old circuit boards I have laying around. They'll probably be more difficult to solder due than my guitar but they're what I have laying around.
