Re: New pickups in strat

Yeah, just heat it up while gently tugging on the wire and it'll spring loose. It'd help to have three hands.

Re: anyone know how to set the tone knobs on a fender strat?

Different strokes for different folks. And different occasions. I like to "floor it" now and then, too, just not all the time. :D
