Why change from passives?! My apartment has un-earthed wall sockets and I have noticed all passive pickups make a slight hum. I have no idea I why I haven't bothered with it for this whole year I've lived here, but until we move, I will use passive pickusp exclusively to get rid of that slgiht hum. Thing is, it doesn't hum all the time, only when my hand gets too close to the pickup... Anyway, this works great.
I can't change the bit on my router for some reason, and my handdrill was out of battery...
So LETS KNIFE IT!
Get that shit right off!
And some tape to cover it up!
Trying it out! I put 2x EMG 81 in this one, usually I love the 85 in the neck, but I wanted to try how the 81 sounds... And it's definitely not bad at all! More defined than 85, maybe, but the 85 is my favorite just because it's SOOOOOO round and warm, bubbly if you want.
I have to lower the action a tiny bit now since I took the whole thing apart, but I can play this action for now, and adjust it when I change strings next time maybe.
