    Does anyone know if the pick ups and pots can be removed from the dimarzio prewired model P pickguard? Dimarzio only offers the white and black pickgurads and i hate the look of those. i have never solderd so i was hoping i could remove the the electronics from the prewired pickguard and install them into my prexisting pickguard. thanks.
  2. Yes, you can remove them. There is a small connection block that all the wiring runs through that is stuck onto the pickguard with double sided foam tape, but you can easily remove it. I picked up one of these a while back and it was a very easy, no solder, solution to swapping out the pickups and electronics. Originally I did use the white pickgaurd it came with but later decided to swap it out for a nice tort guard I had. I just pried the connection block off with a knife, got some double stick tape and stuck it to the new pickguard, fairly simple to do. Oh and they pickups sound great as well!
