ok
So im buying EMG pick ups.
um im just wondering, when you buy the pick ups, do you get two? or do you have to buy them seprately?
I've never bought pick ups before but I want to change them.

*EDIT* Do any of you know how much it will cost to have them install the pick ups for me? I really dont know how and i really dont want to try it myself and screw up my guitar.

depends on which your getting im believe you can get them in a set like the 81 85 but you can get them separate too
#4
Yeah, you buy them individually.
So the classic EMG set is an EMG 81 in the bridge for metal tone, and an 85
in the neck for cleans.

EDIT: Well yeah, unless you get like a Zakk Wylde 'set',
but unless its labeled, you have to buy em each in their own box.
And they each come with 2 pots and a couple wires.
The Zakk Wylde set comes with like 8 pots though.

IM not sure of the Zakk Wylde set. I dunno.
I just want to change my pick ups.
and yeah , i want an 81 and 85.
So do i ask the employee for a set of 81 and 85's?

ya an 81 and 85, most pickups come as singles as sometimes you just want to change one.
but man, spider 3... if you want an upgrade in tone thats where to start.

Yup, just ask for an EMG 81 and an 85.
BTW, if you want to save money, and you dont tend to play very much clean stuff,
you can just buy the 81 for now.

Thanks, but im just gonna get both. Now do you have any idea how much it will cost for them to install the pick ups? I really dont know how to do it myself, so i would rather have them do it.
