Never installed pickups, it's like 75 dollars to have it done. Anyone know a good video out there showing how it's done?

do you know how to solder? if so, you can follow the diagrams from Seymour Duncans website, also there is a sticking in Gear Building and Customizing about wiring guitars.

EMG's are kinda easiy to install, the quick conect system is pertty handy for swaping pickups, but all you need is a diagram and some sodering experience. Theres a thread on EMGs floating around somewhere, it sholdent be hard to find, think its called the offical EMG thread or something.

Or you can go here :

75 bucks to get EMGs installed? God damn, that's either a pricey luthier, or mine was not pricey at all.

Either way, I prefered to get mine installed by a professional, who I am confident will get the job done right. Also, it seems EMGs (the EMG-ZW set, at least) are only under warranty when installed by a professional luthier. There is a special warranty card for your luthier's signature, stamp and all that. In case something goes crap, you're covered.

What I am saying is, better safe than sorry.

Yeah I bought this set at a local Guitar Center, but they sent me to someone else to have the pickups installed. I thought they themselves did it.

the installation instructions that come with the pickups are easy to follow, try doing it yourself its something every guitarist should learn

A member of the x series of jackson I'm guessing. Well the pickups should come with the parts you need so all you need to do is take the old pickups out, replace the potentiometers, replace the capacitor, replace the input jack and then just follow a wiring diagram and your set.
