Exactly what I was looking for.

This video was exactly what I was looking for. I'm sure glad I watched this before opening up my guitar first. Made sure I got the correct tools and did some practice before starting on the real thing.

I'd really like to see an advanced video on alternate wirings.

Not the most 'exciting' film...ha, but VERY informative. Actually I used the video instead of the wiring diagram, ha. Very nice, well done.

Wiring Without Worry

Stew-Mac's videos are always done with the inexperienced tech in mind. Therefore, the step-by-step instructions are clear and concise leaving very little room for mistake. Includes list of every tool needed. Worth every penny of your investment -- and with just one installation, they pay for themselves.
