Overview

The Seymour Duncan Liberator Solderless Potentiometer 250k is a solderless pickup change system.

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 250k pots are typically used to tame the brightness of single-coil pickups, while brighter 500k pots are typically used with humbuckers.)

Warranty
MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
One year replacement warranty on all pickups.

Great Product Yalls!

Comments about Seymour Duncan Liberator Solderless Potentiometer 250k:

first off, lemme say that i have yet to get more than one pickup going at one time through this pot. let me hen also say that there is a noticeable different connecting pups through it. i use lace sensors, and ran through another 250k pot and got good results, but i ran same through this 250 pot and got better results (more output, clearer tone). the only thing is that it has only 2 ground outlets, which means the pickup grounds go where? yeah... one for the g wire to the bridge and one for the 1/4 inch input. so i tried grounding by putting 2 pup grounds into one pup insert, then looping (literally) them into one pup input (so say you have 4 gnd wires, put two into one pup insert so you have only 2 gnds. then put those 2 into another pup insert so you only have 1 gnd), then grounding that input. didnt work. no signal. so 5 star quality, but 3 star confusing = 4 star (mabey its just me)
