Making a prewired harness for guitar pickups

This is a mod so if you guys need to move it to the other section go ahead. Id like to make prewired harnesses for my guitars, so that I dont ahve to do so much soldering everytime I change pickups. Plus this would let me wire them in neat ways just by switching a few things around. First off Im wondering what components I could use to do this with. I know that emg uses those little connectors and I think these would work fine. Anyting like this would be perfect. I change pickups so much I hate busting out the soldering iron on top of Im not all that good at it, so Id like to do it once to all of em and get it over with, then if I want a different sound I just wire new pickups up to work with my harness and pop em in. Any help or drawings you guys can give me would be much appreciated

i did it some years ago, but you have to find some pretty little connectors so you can flip them underneath the pickups. that's the only place they could be placed, unless you route big tunnels underneath the top, so that the connectors can be flipped in and pulled off easily.

Well with my les paul and sg the routes are already huge as well as on my wolfgang they would definitely fit the standard emg style connectors. Thats the standard way that emg does it. Do you have any pictures of your guitar wired up like that? I just want to get the wires in place i can add the connectors once theyve been threaded through the routes anyways . Since IM making them myself. Im only wanting to remove the pickups whenever I want without soldering, not the pots and switch etc.
