  • new emg solderless....damn you damn you to h3LL

    so my guitar player decided to go back to EMG and I told him I would hook it up for him...

    everything went smooth then it happened..the pickup wire for the bridge was too short and the middle barely made it....EMG need to use longer wiring with the solderless systems apparently...gonna call them monday and see if they can send me a couple neck position wire connectors...
    no more sig

    yeah the whole solderless thing is stupid.



    Now on the good side, they will probably send you the wires free of charge. Their customer service is excellent.

        I actually like the solderless system. I'm a ret@rd and try as I may, can't solder. I found the solderless system to be a breeze. It wish it was standard in all pickups.

            You know, why hasn't this become a standard practice? Is there something inherently better about having to solder each wire separately? De-noobify me plox!!

                    my problem with it is...if I need a new pot or extra wire length for a regular pickup.. I go to the local electronics store and pick stuff up... if I need a new pot or extra wiring for an EMG solderless system, I have to contact them, pay whatever they want to charge me for it and wait for it to get here etc...



                    I just like the convenience of being able to work with parts that are readily available locally (or anywhere for that matter).

                        Fair point. But if this becomes a standard practice, then those parts will be readily available anyway as they would replace the current standard. As I understand it, the solderless system is a series of wires, pots and pickups that are connected like you would the wire harness in your car and each individual part is removable and replaceable without having to remove the rest of the parts that you aren't replacing.



                        Basically, as the new standard becomes the solderless system, your problem of not being able to find parts quickly becomes a non-issue. Or am I missing something? I mean, it's less likely that you'll be able to go to Radio Shack and pick up these items, but all of the music/guitar shops would have them...

                            THIS!! If they were standard, all music shops worth a damn would carry them in various lengths, and you could just go down there and grab it just like any other part.
