The solderless connector setup includes a circuit board loaded with all the favourite USA grade electronics (Switchcraft jack, Switchcraft switch, CTS potentiometers, Orange drop capacitor). This circuit board simply drops into your Gibson style control layout, then you plug in the connectors we've added to the end of the pickup leads into the circuit board. The humbucker setup comes with default 500k potentiometers, 3 way toggle switch and 0.022uf capacitors.
These are available in both import (long shaft pots, short frame switch), USA (long shaft pots, long frame switch), or right angle (short shaft pots, right angle toggle switch) formats. (ONLY) Gibson Les Pauls will use USA. Epiphones and other import models will use the import format. SGs and similar will use the right angle format. Import models Les Pauls typically use short shaft potentiometers, but we've found through experimentation that due to the nature of the way that the pots are seated at different heights in the cavity, short shaft pots will not work effectively. Long shaft pots are used by shimming the shaft to the correct length with the second nut inside the cavity.
No soldering is required at all, making the installation job take about 10 minutes in total!
This is a medium output pickup set designed for maximum versatility.
This is our 'middle of the range' pickup set, able to span a wide range of soft genres, right up to heavier ones. This has a bright and articulate neck pickup that will never get muddy regardless of how much gain you throw it at. Bright, however, does not mean thin or weak. This pickup blends just the right amount of high end to keep it from being muddy and a nice chunky mid and low end to keep leads tight and fat. The bridge is a 42awg/43 awg hybrid. A hybrid pickup is a pickup wound differently on each bobbin, this removes a lot of the frequency cancellation that is leached along with the hum cancellation of a humbucker. As each bobbin has a different resonant frequency this allows a broad frequency spectrum, greater high end and detail intensity that is simply impossible to achieve with a standard humbucker.
