I got a guitar with H-S-S pups. The one in the bridge is an EMG85, which I think is too warm for what I play (metal), and I want to replace it with a Seymour Duncan Livewire.
The other pickups are both EMG SAs. I want to leave these in there.
I was wondering if I could just swap out the 85 for the Livewire, or do I have to do some funcky stuff with pots etc? I know the Blackouts have these pins, like the EMGs, but I believe the Livewire do not. Can I just swap these pups?
Yeah, you can just do a straight swap with em, the connectors are the same and you dont need to change pots etc.
