Hi!

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a new axe (Ibanez tongue.gif)
And now, my other guitar is... standing there.
Since the pick-ups suck, I'd like to change them.
Can I put an EMG in it? This one for example?
And is it hard to put 'em in on your own, without any help from a guitar tech?


Thanks everyone!

Btw, the 'old' guitar is a Washburn X-10 with humbucker at the bridge (where I'd like the EMG to be) and two single coils... From which I don't find they have to be replaced.

You might need to know how to do the wiring as sometimes the coding between guitars and pickups differ. Muris posted a good link some time ago to an great pickup manufacturer who had lots of wiring info on his site. Also -if the Washburn has passive pickups then you may need somewhere to stash the battery for the EMG and routing for the cable.

Cheers,
Tony

Yeah, what tonymiro said if you get one of the active EMG's. This EMG that was shown was passive though.
