    if you get a schematic, do it yourself. It's fun and challenging and once you learn, it's actually pretty easy. Like you said, you have a spare SG, right? You won't be knocking your main guitar out of action until your electrician friend pulls your butt out of the fire. Just kidding. Although just because somebody is an electrician doesn't mean they know how to solder. If they do and they're a good enough of a friend, they probably won't mind showing you how to do it. I learned from watching an experienced tech work on guitars and did the same thing on my own. Now I can tackle most any electronic job to do with a guitar. You owe it to yourself to learn how to do this.

    It's easier and sounds better just to get a noise gate.
