Duh... I don't get out much. I'd never heard of the things until I saw them on Long & McQuaide's site. So I thunk: why not get a few connectors and wire one to each necessary point in the control cavity and to each lead on each pickup I own? Well, of course, people had thunk of THAT long before I did as well. (See link.) But surely there must be 99 kinds of small electronic connectors which could be used for that? There is an electronics supply store a couple miles away which carries tons of stuff, mostly for industry, but for hobbyists too. They don't carry guitar-specific stuff, but surely any small male-female connectors would do the job, eh?

I know a guy who did a bus bar for his wiring. <br /> The connector type you list would be simple also and just heat shrink the exposed area and your good. Or just get the bullet style connectors, as they are already insulated.<br /> Easy Peesy!

The parts you show are the generic equivalent of yje metal contact parts for Molex connectors. They should work just fine.

Another option is the quick connects used for R/C airplanes. They are well made, they lock together, and they are necessarily small and lightweight.

Good link, Peegoo. I generally use a bus bar for ground rather than having everything coming out of the back of the pot. Makes rewiring and repairs easier as well.

Looks good. Today I bought a bag of 'tab' connectors, but I will see if the shop has the JR type.
