I'm looking at buying the EMG Kerry King set and I like the idea of putting in the gain booster but the guitar I'd put it in (agile hawker) doesn't use a pickguard and I'm not doing extra routing so if I took out the tone pot (or stuck it on 10 or 0 (which would work out better to work with the gain booster? putting it on 10 or 0) and hid it in a cavity) and then put the gain booster in it's spot it would workout right? Also I'm worried about space so if there isn't enough space to hide the tone is it possible to just do away with it? I'm kind of a newb at modifying so I'm not sure what to do
You'd want your tone on 10.
If i were you i'd leave the tone pot inside the guitar set to max, taped to the wood inside so it won't rattle around and change the pots value. All else sounds good, go for it
