Haha, just had to respond because soldering adventure.
When I was in high school for AP Physics we had to make an instrument. I decided I would make a Kick-Ass (say it like Jack Black, now) electric violin. Rock!
My experience with solder was exactly the same - I tried over and over to melt down the solder over the spliced wires to no avail. I was surprised they didn't put some advice right there on the box: Do not heat solder; Heat the metal/wires. Trust us.
Could have saved me a bit of time.
Good experience, even though the violin came out awful. At least the humbucker worked. Kind of.

PS - Realized that you had a message below the comment box about not adding http to the URLs -- a little too late, I might add. Ah well. A heads up.

Actually, I fixed the http thing, thanks to Corvus. So no worries!
