Do the new SD blackouts sets come with quick disconnect? I just bought a set and I'm just wondering how this installation is going to be, it'll be my first pickup install.

Depends on what you have in there now. If they are EMG quick connects then they will drop straight in using the same connector. If not then you will have to do some soldering in the control cavity.

there are a lot of resources on here, look at some of the stickys (top posts) here, EG and GB&C.

really it isn't scary at all.

if they are quick disconnect it will take 10 minutes.

if they don't you may have to do some soldering. use flux, tin the wires, etc, then make your joint.

make sure you have the correct value pots EMG uses 25k.

NOT 250k or 500k like a passive pickup.

you will be fine, worst case scenario post back on here, i will be on here a few more hours on and off, so i should be able to help you. cathbard is great, gumbi is as well, Matrix Claw, as well as a dozen on here ATM. (no offense to anybody, i just forget names, don't feel bad :cheeers: ).

Thanks! I guess the blackouts come with new pots and a stereo jack which I'm glad for!
