I want to install EMG 81 active pickup in my Ibanez SZ520 which at the moment has stock passive pickups. I will remove only bridge passive pickup and replace it with active EMG.
Do you guys have any tips or some helpfull wire diagrams before I start with work ?
My Ibanez has 2 volume and 1 tone pot and 3 ways switch. Passive pickup volume pots are 500k but I will get myself 25k which I will use for new active EMG.
So my plan is to wire pickups so that in 1st position I get only signal from active EMG, in 2nd postion I get signal from passive and in third position no signal from both pickups.
I googled alot in last few days and found alot of wire diagram examples like this one and few video examples on youtube: One and two.
Has anyone here tried to do this setup in his guitar ?
I once saw guy doing KSE cover on youtube few years ago with same guitar and setup (EMG in bridge and passive in neck) so it is possible.
