I have a Alembic P/J set of pickups and electronics that needs a new connector on the board and cable and need the parts. Someone hard wired the pickup directly to the board and I want to redo it correctly.

Is it hard to hook this up to the pickup cable?

Hi Dave,

Putting the male connector on the board isn't hard if you are good with solder wick (or have a desoldering iron) to get the damaged part off. The trickier part is fixing the crimps on the pickup lead itself. If you don't have the correct crimping tool, it's a very difficult job.

I sell a 2" lead with the connectors precrimped, the housing, and a short length of shrink tubing to make the splice for a couple of bucks.

You can also send the pickups to me and we recrimp for free (you just pay shipping). Either way just ask and I'll thrown in a male connector for the board (I think they cost 11 cents or something).

Email me and let me know what you want to do.

Super-duper! I think sending the pickup to you is the way to go, and I can attach the part to the board myself.

I'll email you.

Thanks so much,
