How would the pickup set up go for this guitar with active emg 81/85 pickups go? would the passive one in the middle have to be removed? or would it be a combination of active and passive pickups?
The guitar is an Ibanez RG2550E Prestige with an Edge 2 Tremelo System.


heres a pick of the guitar

someone from our school have this S prestige with zakk wylde's set, but with the original single in the middle still working. I asked him how did he do that, the stupid could not answer, he said that the dude who did this is an expert.
so it;s possible to combine them, but i wouldn't do it myself.

It definitely is possible, but it's really not worth it. You have to use different pots or buy an active booster for the original single, etc.

it's not that difficult to do. can't remember how, just keep bumping it, sure someone that knows the answer will see it.

You could just replace the 5 way switch with a 3 way switch and not wire the middle single coil in.

yeah, but his SC is wired in, so maybe he has this active booster like random said, because he still has two pots, volume and tone.
