"snap On" Pickups


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I'm looking for ways to make a pickup system thats kinda like Snap On Tools. What I mean is... Having pickups that are interchangeable by snapping them in and out. One idea was to have the pickup ring have wiring in it and the pickup itself pop in like a 9 volt battery. Just wondering if this is possible or been done before. Thanks

I stopped by Fry's today and picked up everything I need to do this. The total cost for 10 male connectors, 10 female connectors, and 50 wire inserts for the female adapters was around $5.50 before tax, not counting the heat shrink to cover the wire to pin connections, which I already had. If I get a chance to get to it this weekend (BUSY!), I'll take some pics and make a writeup.

BTW, this is a similar method to the EMG setups, but it's not exactly the same, as they were out of stock of the flat connectors that EMG uses. I'll have to order some from Mouser.
