Alright, so I got an EC-500, with the "EMG" 81/85 configuration.

And I was just wondering, would it be tough to change it into a pair of Seymour Duncan '59 model SH-1?
Not if you know how to solder. I'm not sure, but you might need other pots.

Yes, you would need new pots.

It's not all that difficult, although you might just leave them in and buy a new guitar instead?

take it to a shop and let them do it. u dont seem that confident so u shouldnt gamble with a perfectly good guitar.
