    No, they don't. You only have to solder a total of four wires. For each pickup a live wire and a ground.

    It’s a good lesson in budgeting for some of these upgrades. It’s easy to get carried away. I hadn’t had any issues with my wiring that I know of. Just what I would say is typical buzz. I’ll update once I get it back and hear it and let you know if it was worth it besides peace of mind knowing that it is top of the line quality.

    I do not believe so. That would be cool though.

    Lego can be a formidable weapon. Ever step on one in the dark?

    I ordered a TV Jones harness with the treble bled circuit myself today for my 5420TG. Already have Setzer’s replacing the Blacktops. This should be the final planned upgrade, but time will tell, LOL.

    Hi all, I've managed to get myself a bit confused and hoping for help. I have a G5422T and want to get a TVJ wiring harness (and possibly pickups), am I right in thinking I need the long switch and split shafts, and will also need a new switch tip because of the difference between metric (stock) and imperial (TVJ)?

    I think I understand the discussion about short Vs long and ease of replacement, but looking at the TVJ website they suggest long switch is needed. I've worked on Les Paul & Strat type guitars and I'm no stranger to a soldering iron, but this will be my first time working on a hollow body, is there anything else I need to consider?
