Hey dudes,
Just after a quick bit of advice.
I'm going to put new pickups in my Dinky (floyd rose) and am wondering if the trembucker jazz/jb set will work properly in my les paul?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Trembuckers have different spacing than humbuckers. I doubt it'll work.

Trembucker's are wider, you'll need new pickup holder things, to drill new screw holes and even then, the actually magnetic field would be out of place for optimum effect

So i'd say not advisable

Trembuckers and any Floyd spacing is Fender spaced. The poles won't line up with the strings and it will most likely change the sound. I've heard from some that it changes and others that it doesn't.

Ok so I guess it won't work too well.
Thanks guys.
Also, if I want to drop EMG's (81/85 probably) into my Jackson, will they work properly with the floyd rose spacing?
Or do I need specially designed EMG's?

EMG's will match standard spacing for a Floyd Rose.
