    into the female jack is going to be a regular guitar cable, to my amp. and the piezo transducer is not actually a mic, it just somehow picks up the sound the guitar makes, not sure how it works lol, i just know it does, lol.

    !! NEW TO SOLDERING AND STUFF >> Which is the Tip / Ring on this female audio jack?

    Like i said, i have no experience at all, i don't know what an OHM or what anything is, what i'm trying to do is to learn what to do before i start soldering wires and stuff. Isn't there a certain "way" that these jacks are made, like a universal template on how they work or something? by...
