At the moment I have passive pickups in my Ibanez, I want to get SD Blackouts instead. Do I have to do anything to my guitar first to create room for the batteries or something?

No, just glue the battery on the back somewhere.

Look at the back of the guitar, see the panels there. Open them up and see if there is space to physically stick the battery in there. If there is, you're laughing. If not, get out the router.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

Really. eh.

I don't really recommend them, since it looks like you're a pretty straightforward metal artist.


I've read they're great for leads - like vai - but not that good for Rhythm.

But I think they'll be fine, I definitely want them for the lead tone anyway.

I guess. They're really trebly. They're not going to make you sound like Vai, there's more to his tone than his pickups.

Expect for all your mistakes to be heard. They're not forgiving.


I guess they will make me a better play than

What would you recommend then?

EDIT: I'm thinking of pairing the evolution with an x2n.

Bareknuckle Painkiller or Warpig depending on what type of metal you play. Those are the best Passives i have heard.

Blackouts are really good though
