I just bought a LPJ a couple of months ago, but wasnt crazy about the black pickup covers but the Guitar was a great deal and sounded great too so I bought it thinking I could just swap out the pickup covers later. Wrong...covers are part of the pickup assembly. No problem, I picked up a couple of gibson 498t/490r with chrome covers off ebay for cheap but found out that the LPJ has the quick connects when I went to install. Gibson is making it really hard to customize this guitar. I've read several posts about connecting non quick connect to quick connect, but no one really shows you how to do it. Does anyone have any experience doing this? The quick connect has 4 wires and the lead only has one. Can I just solder the lead to the volume pot lug like normal and bypass the quick connect altogether?
