Guess I'm going to have to find out how to take all the wires off the old pot and put it on the new one.

OK, clearly putting up pics is not a good idea.

Ive been trying to unsolder a wire from the pot for half an hour...do you think I just don't have a hot enough soldering iron? Should I just cut the wires from the pot?

OK, I've been trying to unsolder the black wires from the pot...just figured out that this is not what should be done, I think. Hopefully I didn't damage the black wire and whatever it does.

OK, I'm going to stop here. I scraped the pickguard, the knob, probably damaged the black wire and god knows what else.

I'm going to take it in to someone who knows what to do.

Probably the best thing to do.
