If some of you guys remember my blue Ibanez that I had here for sale awhile ago...I am buying it back. Now that I have my fixed bridge guitar, I would like a trem that I can keep in one tuning only and not have to mess with it! The current owner took out the Kerry King EMG 81/85's and put them in another guitar, so there are no pickups in it. I was wondering if there was an active single coil that would compliment the EMG's? I know EMG sells an active H-S-H kit...but they aren't 81/85's as far as I recall. What do you think?

Thanks Skennington! If a guitar is already setup with 81/85's...how difficult would it be to add this to the center slot? There is already a hole there from the single coil passive pickup and a battery box installed. Obviously I would need a 5 position switch. Anything else tricky about the install?

Here it is...Yep I'm buying it back for $150 since the pickups were removed. Pretty good price I think...it still has everything else in it including the Tremol-no

Just put the coil in and solder it to the switch according to the wiring instructions that come with the pickup...

As Skenny said, the SA or SX would do the job.
Should be a straightforward install Ben.
Let me know if you want a wiring Diagram and I'll see if I have one! If not you should be able to follow a standard Ibanez wiring configuration which I definitely have the diagrams for!
