    Forgive me...

    I got a great deal on a harness & pickups for a hollowbody husk I have.

    What are the names/types of connectors here? I'd like to add the correct ends to the Fidelitrons I have. I have a set of Blacktops & Super Hilos with the connectors already so I can compare/swap easily.

    Thank you WingedWords.

    I guess I could have also unclipped one for a pic. I'm sure they're pretty common. I just dont know what they are. No markings at all.

    No, not Tamiya then, or anything I remember seeing in my RC days.

    PS: OP, for what it’s worth, Kauer guitars use pickup to harness connectors on their Titan guitar line, to provide easy pickup swap.

    Maybe could you see if you find out something about these connectors on their website or social media accounts.

    I think they are called Duplex Connectors, but the problem is they vary is size and locking mechanism etc.

    .

    Order the RC control car connectors off Amazon, they are pretty inexpensive and you'll have all the same ones.

    This came up twice in the last three weeks... recurring theme here. ;)

    These look like locking JST XH or JST PH connectors. If you can measure the "pitch" the you can narrow it down. (Pitch is the center to center distance of the pins, usually in mm, e.g. 2.0mm or 2.54mm.) Molex and others make a huge variety of them, making it really difficult to narrow down to the exact product / model.

    Came here to bump this thread only to find a bunch of replies. Havent gotten any notifications. Weird.

    Thank you all for the input. Great starting point. I'll see if my calipers are accurate enough to get a pin reading.

    You'll only get reply notifications if they quote you or use the REPLY link right on your post (not the one under the comment input field at the bottom).

    Otherwise, you should use 'watch thread' on a thread you start if you want to be sure to be notified of all replies, whether they quote your or not.

    Dont know if it changed or not, but any thread I've started in the past automatically notified me of posts. Kind of common sense that one would be Interested in their own thread. Not a big deal nonetheless.

    Appreciate everyone's input.
