EMG Announces Solderless Installation

EMG has unveiled the latest advancement in pickup technology, the solderless install. Beginning with their Pro Series pickguards and the new X-Series pickups, EMG will phase in the new components to existing products throughout 2009.

“A user friendly approach to the installation process is essential; not only for end-users but manufacturers as well.” says Rob Turner, founder and President of EMG Inc. “We have succeeded in simplifying the process of both installation and upgrading of pickups, putting the players in complete control. Now expanded to everything from pots, to input jacks, to pickups, this is the next generation of our quick-connect concept.”

Great! This is definitely a nice piece of invention, simplifying things for performers. I won't be surprised if this will come with a price.

I was talking to Rob Turner yesterday, I can't believe I didn't ask him about the price. I'll see what I can find out and post an update.

Take a look at Acme Guitar Works' Toneshaper product. It's a patented design that looks strangely familar? It just might be an IP misunderstanding on EMG's part.
