i was all ready to click add to basket for an emg 81 to throw in the bridge when i realised a 9v battery will not fit into my guitars cavity, so, i don't want to have to have a chunk of wood taken out so im wondering what passive alternatives there are?

i play a dean ml 79 mahogany body, maple top, rosewood fretboard and a set in neck

i know the amp is the main factor in sound, but im going for a thick dark but not muddy sound, think along the lines of cradle's her ghost in the fog that kinda sound

Got for some bare knuckles man, some of the best passive pickups for metal!

Well when I was in your position I actually taped the batteries to the back of the plate.

Interesting - This is probably the first instance I've heard of with EMGs where the battery doesn't fit in the control cavity. If they could fit in my SG, I figured they'd fit in anything

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It's pretty easy to use a router...

I was talking to a respectable guitar tech in my area about this a while ago for my flying V.

we came to the conclusion that the best otions were to route out a battery cavity (which i did) or add a small velcro pouch to an edge of the guitar where its out of the way.

so for me it wouldve been the top edge of the Vin from of where i rest my arm.

he said hes done it before and it worked really well and the owner of the guitar loved it

and pretty easy to f*** up too. for example, if the TS runs the router ther wrong way in comparison with the wood grain, BAM runaway router, that will leave unwanted areas routed.

sorry i was tired at the time, i meant what pickup would jon have used? 500t? he played a flying V and LP so i assume it would be that or actives.
