  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Went to put the stock EMGs back into my LTD MH7, and thought I had all I needed, then started looking at the selector switch and really realized I have no idea what I’m doing here. :lol: I can swap passives all day, but I have no idea what to do with the quick connects or the selector switch...

    Is there a way to direct mount these without screwing the screw ring on the pickups? I mean that brass thing.

    So, I've been driving myself mad in the past few weeks with tone. For the majority of the time I've played guitar I've used passives, primarily Duncans, but in the past two-ish years I've been acquiring guitars with EMGs and I gotta be real, I don't understand these things at all. I've noticed...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I recently started recording guitars for my band's next release (about fucking time) and after trying my JEM and deciding it sounded too thin (for Death Metal rhythm), we tried my Jackson KE2 (EMG 81/60) and decided we had to use it. Sounded way beefier and meaner in general, but there was one...

    Hi. My name's Mark, and I used to be an EMG addict. Two sets of 81/85, one of 81/60: £80 per set. 81/SA/SA: £90 (some cosmetic damage to the 81 in this, so a bit less than half GAK's current price) 57/66: £110 Will include normal first class to UK, or you can pay for tracked.

    Hi! I'm looking to buy a new or mint condition MIM Fender Jim Root Telecaster in Flat Black and a Maple Neck. Complete with OHSC and all case candy that it came with new, if possible. Seller must be willing to ship to Portugal and know how to properly and safely pack a guitar for shipping (!)...

    Almost two weeks ago, I grabbed a set of EMG's that I haven't used in a few months (85/60) and the EMG solderless harness that they were originally wired up with. I've tried a several different things, so I'm going to try to be as concise as possible, to avoid typing a novel. When I hook...

    My 81 loaded Explorer is just destroying every other guitar I have. It's puts the tone in testosterone. Anyways, looking for quick connect 81s/60s/Hs/HAs. Maybe 89s. Maybe any other humbuckers they made I might have forgot. No 85s though. I have two sets of Black Winters and a Custom/59...

    Hey guys, I got an RGA recently and I immediately got down to changing the pups out to an 85/81. The problem is these EMGs came out of an older guitar without the solderless system. So now I have to figure out why both pups are always on regardless of the 3 way lever. The volume and tone pots...
  10. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I have a Charvel DX-1 ST that came with EMG 81/85's. I ordered a 57/66 EMG set knowing that EMGs are easy to swap with other EMGs. However, I found out that this is not the case. I took out the original pickups, and hooked in the new ones just fine, but the 57/66 set seem to stretch my pickup...

    Mint condition ibanez mtm1 in red (version with EMG's). Has the original red hard case with it (and yes I have the lock nuts as well). Guitar has normal play wear, no major damage I can find. Stunning player, great neck, and great sound (I like EMG's). Just kind of wanting to get a 7 string...

    So, I figured I'd snatch one of these up because it had good bones for a modding. I added Hipshot locking tuners, a Hipshot 8-string hardtail, and a pair of EMGs :yesway:

    You know the deal. Bought a used guitar, past owner was clearly one of the lowest common denominator mouth breather types who enjoyed the unparalleled clarity, searing harmonics, and ultra tight response of EMG 81s. Traits I've found boring over time. These are coming out... And something...

    So it was originally a HSH config with stock pups.. But then I got to watching some Soreption vids on YouTube. The custom RG pickguard gas with HxH config was unbearable.

    Wirelessly posted (:sponge:) ...they have no place in a pop rock band that is otherwise just piano, bass and drums. Terrible, out of place tone is as described.

    Can Ibanez LoZ3 actives be swapped out for EMGs or Blackouts without any wiring changes?
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Because the pickup forum looked like it needed a little influx of something that wasn't boring as fuck... Amazon sometimes runs badass sales on things that aren't selling particularly well, and I snagged these over thanksgiving break for some really good prices. ~$35 a piece on the 81s...
