    I am considering an upgrade to EMG pickups for my bass. The only thing that worries me are the push-on connectors they use. Are these connectors reliable? Has anyone had any problems with them ?

    Thanks.......Jeff

    I've seen, fixed and played countless basses with EMG pickups and never saw a problem with the connectors.

    Cool, that is what I was hoping to here.
     
  4. Just installed some EMG-J's last week, and those connectors seem really sturdy and make your job easier, make sure you insert them the arrow facing you, it doesnt mention that on the instructions.

    Yeah, I've never had problems with my EMGs on my Tenor.

    I installed them myself and couldn't have been easier. Very straight forward other than I needed instructions for something I couldn't remember, but it was fixed easily.
