yeah, its like considered blasphemy to but such bad ass pickups like EMG's on a **** guitar like B.C. Rich

Get a ESP or Schecter then drop those babies in there. Or just get one that already has EMG's in it

dont get EMGs. Get passives. Maybe a JB/59 or something from DiMarzio. u wont waste money and will get more tone for cleans.

Save up then, you are probably not going to get that much better of a sound simply by puting EMGs in it.

pups wont be a huge difference...bronze series are made of agathis,whichs sounds really bad, and you need a good amp for good tone...dont waste money on pups,just getter a better guitar and a better amp...maybe an epi les paul,there much better than a BC IMO, and are the best bang for the buck. and maybe a peavey windsor, i dunno much about them,but apperently they are better than a marshall MG, which would be a possibility too,but prepare to hear about it lol.

i like it its just i could make it better

how do you know if you'd like ur new pickups? it will definitely lose the tone you have. you'll get a new tone from it. u might like it more, but there is a chance you might not like it.

yeah true i think i will just buy a new guitar
so instead of making a new thread can you tell me some suggestions
#20
i'd just put the emg's in. the cost will be around 260-300 depending on labor and tax. i wouldn't suggest trying to wire them yourself, they're quite complicated pickups.

that's is a bunch of propaganda. You still have to solder. It is more soldering if the quick connects don't fit. The quick connect does come in handy if you switch the pickup with another emg active pickup

o well. im not the one wiring it.


and i'm quite experienced with pickups and i know how tedious it is to install an active pickup and put a battery in my guitar. changing battery sucks on a strat.
