Seymour Duncan Liberator. It's in my nightstand...or in my guitar...
It doesn't seem to bother Steve Vai, so I'm not worried about using screw in terminals.
I dunno how this works, but it's pretty cool:
I think there are a lot of things in the guitar universe that could be revised. Why are we still wrapping wire around a tuning post? We shouldn't have to do that anymore...but hey, that's the way it has always been done, so there ya go.
I bought a pack of these and make my own pickup quick disconnects:
If the vast majority of keyboard/synth manufacturers and software developers were able to adhere to the MIDI protocol since the 80's, it makes me wonder why guitar manufacturers can't do the same with pickups.
It really isn't that big of a deal, seeing as most people don't switch out their pickups. But truthfully, guitar won't grow and advance if we keep the mentality of "just learn to solder! It's a quick job that you should know!"
I should be able to swap out any of the parts of my guitar with no more than a screwdriver. It's 2019...why am I using a heating tool to melt metal onto wire and a pot when I'm exchanging a guitar part?
