EMG 81 85 wiring

Recommended Posts


I need some help with this classic set.

Bought this set used and my question is can I solder these two red wires together demonstrated in the picture? At the moment the red wires that connect together from the pickups and then are supposed to continue  to the battery - are separated. In the schematic the black thing holds these red wires together. Easiest way would be just to solder dem red wires together. Any advise?

Searching by the image I could find several ones where the black bar is marked with a text "All red wires join here". So apparently yes, soldering and isolating the join with heat shrink tubing or electric tape is a viable option. Crimp tube is another. A knot is not.
