Ok, I just ordered the ESP LTD F-2E Guitar from Guitar Center. They have ESP pickups (basically EMGs) and are passive. I want to put in ACTIVE EMGs. Can I put in active pickups in a guitar that had passive? And which EMGs should I get? thanks

PS: I play mostly metal and rock.

a common pairing is the emg 81 and emg 85. and yes you can put them in your guitar, but you need a place for the battery

yes you can, i had a friend who had his guitar equipped with active pickups, but he had a professionals do this. Im also not sure how he set up the battery

Well, just buy a set and it comes with the pots and wiring, and it doesn't cost more.

^no ur wrong

u just gotta change the pots,and the new pots are supplied with it
i recommend the EMG X series, since u dont have to solder anything, its just plug and play

and wen u get the pups, a manual or somethin will come with them

as for the battery put it in the control ccavity
