Re: Does Anyone Use Strip Connectors?
This also reduces the possibility of overheating and ruining your pots.
I will surely implement this on my next auction rebuild project, ( I also prefer buying vintage MIJ Blazers and modernizing). I have borrowed the solder tab idea from Bourns pots that has already removed any heat to the pot, and this additional item will make connections even easier.
I have also been using "quick connectors" from Acme, that allow me to quickly change complete pickguard assemblies with no soldering. Each set is 1 pin and two sockets with heat shrink. They could also be used to quickly exchange pickups on the same pickgurd.
Question,.. So Is it hard to find a strip connector where all the connections are "common" ? After A quick browse at digikey it seems I still need to run a common between them.
