I am in the Kingston area, wondering if there are any forum members near me that could rewire my guitar...its been apart for 3 weeks and after spending many hours, and starting over several times, i have failed...i thought it would be easy just to copy the wiring that i took out, but it does not seem so...
if you did this before and interested, pm me...willing to pay, so sick of even looking at it...i will never do this again..i think i lost about 5 yrs off my life span......let me know....

What is the make and model of the guitar?
Are you trying to do any complicated wiring involving switches, push/pull pots, etc? (e.g., coil splitting, in/out of phase)

It doesn't look like this?..or does it?

Just trying to make you laugh to get back some of the 5 lost years

If it is a Strat style guitar, you could send the pickguard out and only have to solder in the output jack when you get it back. I'd try that type of thing for you. Unfortunately it would involve shipping costs.

Hopefully someone in the Kingston area will be able to help.

Not really sure how many members are in the area that has did this,after 3 weeks and a lot of start all over I am done.
I sent a message to SD support telling them I need a wiring diagram for a HSH 1 vol 1 tone with push pull and 5 way select, and they send me a link for SSS

It will cost you more to ship it than to get someone to repair it. Contact one of the local guitar stores for a reference. I bought a PRS acoustic from a small store downtown a couple of years ago, seemed like a really good guy. @StevieMac would likely also know someone.

Here's a link to the store
