If EMG thought it was best with 18 volt, they'd have 18 volt. I'd say lay off this idea. smile.gif

Cant hurt to try it out and see what it sounds like... what i just bought takes no modification to my guitar, if i dont like it i just take it out and put the 9volt back in

if you get the 24 volt mod i bought off ebay, there is nothing done to your guitar, so if you dont like it you just put the 9 volt back in

Here is the link to the item I bought on ebay. It is 24v and acts just like a 9v battery! No alterations done to the guitar at all!!

I will also try it, yesterday I ordered those battery clips, as soon as I get them I will go for it. Maybe I will do a little "how to do it" lesson about it, with sound examples of course.
