I recently purchased a kit guitar off Ebay that has a double neck. One is acoustic and the other electric. The person who previously owned the guitar wired the two together at the 1/4 inch jack using…Continue

"Thanks for the advise. This guitar appears to be of Asian decent and not the best POT's and wire were used. It looks like I could have a few cold solder joints to tend with. I figure I will just start from scratch and check my work as I go."
