  • Pickguard + output jack solderless connector

    Dear fellows,

    I've got a question concerning electronics.

    I am planning to build two pickguards for my guitar and HH and HSS.
    That way I'll be able to only change the pickguard according to the kind of sound I am after.

    But I would like to have this pickguard change as easy as possible.
    Meaning no dealing with soldering.

    Is there a connector I could solder in the output jack and in each pickguard that I can use to just disconnect/connect when switching the pickguard?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Cheers,
    Ivo

    The easiest would be DuPont connectors like you use for jumpers on motherboards.

      There is actually a fairly easy way to do this using a couple of EMG wiring components. But to help better, what kind of guitar is it? Strat? Something else?

        www.obsidianwire.com has nice solderless harnesses. Just wire your pickguards with these and easily swap them.

          That's exactly what I was thinking, but maybe with buying one of these, to make one end easier:

          You could just cut the terminals off of the "jack" end and solder it on to the output plug. If you wanted to go one step easier, you could buy EMG's plug-in output jack for $6.

            These would work too.

              Thanks for those links. I didn't even realize GFS made those things. Nice price too.

                    I use Molex connectors for this. It is the same system that Music Man uses on their pickguards...makes for really easy swaps.
