I am not a quitarist so I am new to this site,but I am hoping to learn how to play, hence my question. : : Recently I have aquired a strat copy, (esquire!!!???)with all the wires inside the jack socket torn from the socket itself. There are three wires and three contacts on the socket. Simple maths!!?? but I dont want to fuck it or blow myself up!!!! Could anyone tell me or point me to a diagram that would help me out as to which wire goes where? : : cheers :o) ummm i don’t think you’ll blow yourself up… go to http://www.guitarnuts.com they know all about strat wiring
