Hey MLP! This is probably done a million times but I'm still HELL new to guitar and after 5 months I'm finally ready to make my first mod. I want to change my pick-up covers on my 335 to some gold metal ones I purchased which means I'm going to have to solder them. But my friend was telling me he just uses a silicone/adhesive in place of solder. I know that not soldering will likely cause grounding issues but he says he doesn't occur them. Is this a good method? Are there any good methods in replacement to soldering? Or because it's a metal cover I'm left with no choice?
