Of course all the prewired cables are color coded and all my shielded cable is black. So when I replace those wires, so I can stretch things out and mount them where I want, I might keep a short portion of the unshielded wires at the end to help identify them, but I hate to add two extra solder joints in each wire that is not really needed. Have to think about that. maybe I can use some sharpie or paint pens to color code my black shielded cables. I may keep the prewired short leads on the Control X board side only, I don’t want to solder on there any more than I have to. The jack and switch have lugs that are easier to work with, and I am replacing both of those pre-wired chrome parts from the kit with gold parts that I bought separately. The only soldering required on the board are easy access through holes near the corner for the piezo signal and shield wires (X-Bridge wires in the figure below). I am not going to remove any of those other wires from the board, but maybe cut a good length where I can strip off a portion and solder that to my shielded cables.
