Im thinking bout buying emgs (81/85) for my gibson lp.
Just wondering if the solderless emgs are easy to install.

Also, do i have to get long shafted pots and what are the difference between these and normal ones.

Thanks a lot

they are very easy to install. takes very little time.

Yes, you will need the long shafted pots, the only difference is that an LP requires a longer shaft.

Yup, theyre simple to install, even though its all solderless, you still gotta solder to the output jack and stuff

And for a les paul, yes you need long shafted ones.
Standard


2nd from left is long shaft


The standards wont fit in a les paul

someone talked about this a while back. You can get the long shaft pots free by emailing/calling emg. I would suggest ordering straight from them and requestion the long shafts to be sent with your emgs.
