    I can use something like this. Would you have a link to the clip?

    Wiring instructions are in the video caption. I may have to try that myself.

    was looking for a link and found this connector. Cool way to power a pedal with a battery from the outside. According to Q&A, if you want to use for that purpose, you need to clip the wires and reverse polarity.

    I don't understand why the jack needs to be reversed from the pickguard. Nevermind, my feeble brain just figured it out, lol. But, why would you need to be swapping pickguards that often? After several times you'll be stripping the screw holes in softer bodies, like basswood. I know that from trying too many different pickups in some Strats. Even harder Alder isn't immune. You still may end up with only 2 of the 11 stripped.

  9. I can't remove any Stratocaster pickguard I own with a 22 fret neck (shown in the video), without taking the neck off first.
    Can he remove & screw it down with one hand too?
    Cheers, Barrie.

    I've been able to on all but one of my 22 fret necks. Pull back and up, off it comes.

    My Partscaster has a 22 fret neck and an aluminum pickguard. That one I have to take the neck right off to get under the guard. The other one generally can slide out but it's more flexible than the aluminum checker plate.

    I installed something similar in my Bullet Mustang but wrapped it in electrical tape so it's not quite as quick. This is kinda cool, though. Might negate the need to do a tape wrap.

    For recording, having a couple of "modular" guitars and several swappable PGs can save a lot of space. The trade off is time, of course. Just because PGs use quick disconnect wiring doesn't mean the PGs are quick-swap; it takes a bit of time so it's not something to do in a writing session. It only works for tracking well rehearsed material where a brief break may actually be welcomed.
