Hi folks-does anyone know if the Ibanez s470 can take active pickups like the emg 81?. I want to install one, but i heard the input socket which is on the body next to the tone pot would cause problems..
Yeah, it would be hard to install them because of the weird input jack, I'd take it to get professionally done.
would it be impossible?
No, not impossible by any means.
Not impossible, but a bit of a hassle.
Hmm, the S series are a pretty thin bodied guitar, with the routing for the trem there may not be enough room to fit the batteries.
