I want to put an emg in this but i dont know if i need a passive h4 or an 85, im assuming a guitar so cheap would have a passive pickup in it.

Yes, this is for ****ing around with lol

EDIT: I dont want to carve in a slot for a battery so an active is out of the question, unless it already has an active pickup

Passive in there for sure.

Unless it's made of plywood, if it has correct intonation and set-up it will sound good. That's the beauty of fixed bridges... more string vibration through the body.

If it doesnt have a slot for a battery/ actual battery in it then its not an active, so go with a passive emg
#6
you can tape the battery to the inside of the contol cavity, wouldnt be that hard and that's what most people do.

but honestly, where did you get this?
dont take any guff from these bastards man

Just because the guitar's original pickups aren't passive doesn't mean you can't swap them out for actives.

There's gonna be enough room in your cavity for 1 (or 2, if you so desire) 9V battery. I'd also reccommend an 81 at the bridge, not an 85.

Seriously, where did you get it??
Who makes them? Looks Yamaha...

I want one too... for my kid don't pick my GRX20. He's about to be 4yo, but he sometimes opens the softcase of my Ibby, and starts plucking it.

Not that he can play a note, but early stimulation is a good thing... oh, and not that I'd plan on having a second guitar I don't mind experimenting with.

Same idea. But if you must...

As already said, the battery pack for an EMG should fit in the control cavity. If you REALLY can't be bothered, DiMarzio D-Activators are designed to give you an active sound with passive electronics. And don't be tricked into buying EMG-HZs; they're, well, bollocks.

don't get passive EMGs, if your getting EMGs get actives. You want need to "carve" out your guitar to fit a battery in, look on the back, there will be a cover, take that off and have a look at how much room is in there, most likely a battery will fit very easilly in there, you may want to buy a little clip so that the battery clips on to the wall of your control cavity or you can just have it loose, what ever you want
Plus being able to bust some brootalz on a spongebob guitar is win win!

Surely you wouldn't appreciate it, but it could make her and some guys happy.

So it all depends on who you ask to.

You'd better stick some .015's on that and tune drop A did you know there is a hello kitty strap out there? I have it, it's pink with a big hello kitty face at the end, that would make it even more killer O_O
