Details

The Solderless Pickup Change System from Seymour Duncan

 

The volume potentiometer is the tone junction for your guitar's wiring. Swap it out for Liberator and you'll be able to quickly and easily change pickups for new tone, feel, responsiveness, and output.

 

Liberator is an integrated quality volume pot and screw-clamp connector that accepts bare or tinned pickup leads for torqued-tight tone better than flimsy spring terminals or less-than-perfect solder connections.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

 

With a Liberator installed in place of a volume pot, changing pickups becomes fast, easy, and solder-free, but just as reliable. In fact, it's more reliable than a less-than-perfect solder joint. You simply insert the bare end of each pickup lead into one of Liberator's pickup connector stations and tighten the screw-clamp to lock it down. Turning the screw lifts up a carriage that locks the wire against a fixed pad, securing the connection in place. It's completely simple, and completely solid.

 

For experienced guitar techs, Liberator makes pickup changes much faster and simpler, but with the solid, reliable connections of the Lockdown system.

 

For those who have never soldered before, Liberator opens up a world of tone exploration. You'll be able to easily explore how different pickups change how your instrument sounds and responds in ways that will inspire your playing and enhance your personal voice.

 

Parts of the Liberator


Liberator is like a studio patch bay, where connections that can be easily but securely exchanged up front correspond to hard-wired connections behind the scenes.

 

There are two main parts to the Liberator System: the ten-station pickup connector, and four-station potentiometer connector. The wire colors adjacent to the pickup connector indicate which color wires you should install in each connector station. This is according to Seymour Duncan's wiring scheme for four-conductor humbuckers, but Liberator comes with a color-code guide for easily connecting other manufacturer's pickups.

 

The potentiometer connector stations correspond to the three terminals on a potentiometer-in, out, and ground-plus an additional ground for bridges or tremolo systems. For those who prefer to solder, there are optional gold-plated solder pads adjacent to the potentiometer connector, plus seven gold-plated oval solder pads that go to ground. These pads are much easier to solder than the back of a potentiometer.
Liberator Versions

 

Liberator with Volume Pot comes in 250k and 500k versions. (Warmer 250kΩ pots are typically used to tame the brightness of single-coil pickups, while brighter 500k pots are typically used with humbuckers.) We'll also be offering pre-connected wiring harnesses and pre-wired pickguards for easy installation.

I'm glad that somebody filled the void for us tinkerers who are never satisfied with the way their guitar sounds.
Just solder it once to the internals of your guitar and from then on all you do is use the screw clamps to swap in and swap out to your hearts content!
Nice Bourns pot and good sized solder pads make for great quality.
Can't believe they didn't come out with something like this sooner--such a simple idea! (Posted on 4/10/2012)

Man I just picked this up after changing out my pickups 3 times in the past 2 months on my quest for tone nirvana. Good thing Seymour has the tone guarantee or that would have been an expensive journey.

Luckily on the last change I had installed the Liberator and let me tell you it was easy as could be. Good thing is if I ever have to change again I can do it on the fly. Pot felt great taper was super nice and installed real nice in my Les Paul. Its expensive for a pot, but its a multifunctional pot on steroids so its easy to justify the added cost compared to a normal pot. I hate soldering so this was a no brainer.

This could be especially useful if your at the studio and don't have 10 different axes to choose from you can go from sweet blues to crunch in minutes! (Posted on 3/3/2011)
