Okay so im set on getting a duncan blackout for the bridge position in my lawsuit V and i have some questions. Since there is no back panel on it, wont i have to take the pickgaurd off as well as the strings whenever i want to replace the battery ? And also how often do you have to change the battery if you put a decent one in like an energizer or w/e ? i know that having actives wont make a difference since my amps r solid state but i want it anyway :P Thanks in advance ( nd plz just answer my questions instead of telling me i dont need active )

I hear that batteries should last for a few months if you dont leave the cable in your guitar. I cant help with Your other questions though

Yes.
A fairly good while, few months if you dont play forever a day and dont leave it plugged it.
And you are stupid, no offense.

Why do you want actives?
IMO, it'll make your Solid state sound worse

Or he wants to have hot PUPs for a reason. Though, he taking into consideration that he wants to play them through and MG (which he likes), I might just agree with you.

i mostly want actives cuz they give a really nice trebley boost even on SS ( i tried a schecter hellraiser w/ emg 81/85 when buying my vypyr and i liked the sound a lot ) and iv heard that the black outs get the emg tone without completely butchering your cleans. So i guess as long as i dun leave the plug in then i wont have to change batteries any more than i change my strings ? ( bout 3-3n 1/2 months ) ?
