Quick connect pickup compatibility


Recommended Posts

I did a forum search and didn’t find an answer. 

I have a 2013 Les Paul Studio Tribute. It has the 490r 498t pickups and the quick connect board. I found someone selling  a set of BurstBucker 1 and 2  with the quick connect and I’m wondering if they are compatible? 
I need to be sure before I buy them and I can’t find information anywhere. I know the 2019 studio special limited that the BurstBuckers came out of has coil splitting but my guitar doesn’t.

I think theres only  2 connector types, the old 2/3  pin connector and the newer white 5 pin connector which head connector do you have and which one are you buying 


That’s helpful, I will have to look in the control cavity. The new pickups for sale are 5 pin. I don’t know much about the quick connect system. I honestly didn’t know until I opened up my guitar that it had the circuit board.
