Soldered vs no solder

Soldered vs no solder

In my EMG swap on my FX-260 I opened my LTD Snakebyte for reference only to see it's all been soldered.  Since the ltd snakebyte uses the JH signature pickups wondering why it doesn't use the solderless connectors?  Is it just cheaper for manufacturing to solder it vs using the quick connections? 


The soldered connections are more reliable.  Less warranty or QC claims.


I hate how everything is solderless these days. I just strip the connectors off and solder everything. Can't stand that nonsense.
