It's a 51 second clip. Suck it up. Besides, if you haven't seen it, you don't qualify as a rocker. It's the law.

Alright everyone! the pickups have come in! Now, dod you suggest me bringing them in sometime or doing it myself? The place i'd bring it into is an hour and a half away, and we dont go there too much. But i might be going in on the 18th, and then there i another place an hour away, but i don't like those guys and they overcharge a lot.

If you have the skills, I would say do it. I didn't, so I pretty screwed the old humbucker, although I did get the new one in. if I get another pickup, I will probably take it in to the guitar shop. its your choice

Its not hard to do if your handy but study up on proper soldering technique first.

Definitely not. Not unless you know what you are doing. Believe me, even if you know what you are doing, you can totally freak things up in a big way. I sure have. If you don't know . . . well, ouch. It can get messy.

Now, granted, it's something you should definitely learn how to do, the same as learning how to do your own set-up jobs (or changing a tire for that matter). It's just something that electric guitarists should know how to do, but this would be a good time to learn how to do it using your old pickups, and not the new ones you just got. Heck, you can even try your hand at kitting together a new guitar using spare parts from eBay or something. That's how I did my Utah Jr., so I'd have something to play while my main Utah was on the blocks.

Either way, if you're an old hand at this, and have done plenty of soldering jobs in the past on different things, give it a shot, but if you've never soldered a thing in your life, let those pros that you like do it, even if it's an hour away. That's nothing compared to the hours you'll spend trying to correct any mistakes you might make. (Been there, done that, not fun.)
