    Which guitar that you CURRENTLY OWN

    Pick up quick connecters

    Even though you don't want me to say this, but your best bet is soldering. It will provide a zero volt drop connection......something the connectors you posted are probably not going to do especially after a bunch of plug/unplug cycles with changing pickups. If your dead set on plug in...

    What Movies Made You Cry?

    Lonely Are the of the best movies of all time. Cast Away. It would be bad enough to lose Helen Hunt once but Hanks lost her twice in a hour and a half movie........I was a crumpled heap.
