Gibson Quick Connect pickups question

Recommended Posts

Does Gibson offering the Quick Connect pickups in more than just the 57 Classic, 57 Classic Plus, Dirty Fingers and the Angus Young models?

 

I would guess that if they don't offer it on their website, they don't have it for sale. It seems that they are only selling the ones that you have already mentioned. You could always rewire your guitar and get rid of that circuitboard and go to a more conventional wiring system and then put anything in there I would assume.

OR, just cut the connectors off your existing pickups leaving enough wire to spice to the bare wires to any pickup you want. Quick-connect them back into the circuit board and you're done. A little solder and heat-shrink tubing is all you need.

I assume that all the quick connect pickups are 4-wire? If so, that would be the only limitation. I ask because I also have a guitar with the quick connect pups.

I have a set of pickups from a LP Studio that have the quick connects. Not sure of year or which pickups they are, but I assume they are the standard Studio pickups ie. 496 and 498, or something like that.

I’m looking for the same thing, I can only find mini Humbuckers with quick connects that have been removed from other guitars for sale used. Looks like Gibson made them, but only for themselves not for individual sale. There are quick connect adapters you can purchase made by 3rd parties if you don’t want to gut the guitar... I’m undecided...
