I think it shud be whend you buy your guitar? they just started putting actives in 2006. Might not have a cavity and maybe you cant see the battery...my esp M-II i can c the battery cavity either. might be inside somewhere deep. :/ not really sure.

Your guitar has an EMG81 in the bridge and 85 in the neck. THe KFK set is the same thing. You would be spending money on pickups you already have. DOnt be a poser and blindly buy things because an artist you like endorses them.

im getting the C-1 Hellraiser Baritone and replacing the EMG 81 with my Zakk Wylde EMG 81

****in great dude
#17
Aye, the 5150 would be better
Not MY taste, but better
Also, one of the cavity's in the back near the volume/tone control cavity should be the battery compartment. My Ec had a sticker on the battery cavity, but idk for yours

and yes, Jeff Hanneman is god
Esp Ltd EC-400
Wylde Overdrive
Dano Eq
Fab Chorus
Boss Ns-7
Boss Me-50
Jcm 800 (to be replaced soon)

Ya i dont really play death metal much. But Jack Owens practices in the same Hall as i do and as he puts it "The Death Metal Tone" is a 5150 with a tubescreamer. He claims thats what most of the Death Metal bands use wen they are recording

Actually you can buy the 20 dB gain boost seperately. It's called an EMG-Afterburner and they're fun little toys. Not much use unless you have a tube amp though. When you stick it through solid state distortion it just sounds blah. It's good if you need the extra gain or if you need to add some dirt to your cleans.
