    I bought one of these,kits recently and noticed not all the connections are soldered such as this

    The output jack has this connection as well. What kind of a connection is this?

    It's a conventionally soldered connection with heat shrink tubing over it.

    How do you like the performance of the kit itself? I’m considering getting one for my Kotzen telecaster.

    I bought an Emerson harness for an Epi Dot, to go with a pair of Duncan '59s.

    Quality and workmanship are impeccable. The pots are top-shelf- smooth rotation with a nice even taper. Two thumbs up.

    I know you didn't direct the question at me, but I used the Emerson 4 way switch in my Tele when I installed Lollar pickups a couple years ago and I can't fault the components or assembly. Honestly don't think I could've bought the parts and assembled it myself for the price considering they're all top quality components.

    If you go the 4 way for your Tele, be sure to add the extra wire as instructed to the neck pickup.

    I dont know if its a normal thing for these kits but my wiring harness ive got isn't completely soldered. Some connections,to the pots and 5 way switch merely have the wires hooked through the connections. Which I guess I'm not overly pissed about, but..I'm wondering if they're all sold like this?

    I've only installed 2 of their prewired kits, the 4 way in my own Tele and a strat prewired kit I installed in friends guitar to replace a inoperative 920D setup and both were high quality and robust with solid wire in the right places.

    That sounds like a quality control problem. I would talk to the company and let them know what you received.
