active EMGs on a s5470

hello! i was wondering if i could stick active pickups on an ibanez s5470 (sabre series).
i already know that the s920 premium actually comes with those pickups. i tried it, and it's awesome. having said that, im leaning towards a prestige model (even though i still have to try it).
if not are there passive pickups with a similar output?

No reason you can't put EMGs in there. Pickup sizes are standardized so the only thing you need for EMGs that you don't need for passives space for the 9V battery. Almost all guitars have enough room in the control cavity for a battery, and if it doesn't you can route a little extra out.

Also, you would have to replace the pots and stuff.
