Are EMG's a bitch to install into a Gibson Explorer? I will be installing them tonight and I hope I dont get my ass kicked by these things.

Sorry to steal the thread, but would they be hard in an SG? I would assume not since they are both Gibson, but I might as well ask.
EMG's are easy to install period. Especially if they are of the passive variety.

EMGs are no more difficult to install than any other pickup. Only difference is stereo output jack, battery and the 2 wires from batt.
Super easy install. just did it.

Whats up with the green 104k thingy that goes between the tone and volume pots? I am assuming it's a resistor. I have 2 volume pots and 1 tone pot. So i have 2 pair of 1-volume/ 1 tone pots that are connected by a 104k thingy. Do I leave it? Cut it out? I have the directions that came with the EMG's but they don't show the 104k's.
its a capacitor, if u change that, ur tone will change. some people experiment with different caps to get different sounds. leave the capacitor on.
I dont want to modify it. I am just wondering if I have to solder the 1 capacitor from the front volume pot to the back volume pot and leave the 1 from the tone to the back volume pot. The instructions that come with the emg's dont even show the capacitors being used.

If your gona do anything to the EMGs, but a 18v mod in.

What does that do?

EMGs normally run off a single 9V battery, but you can mod them to take 2 9V batteries (18V). Apparently its like removing a pillow from the front of your cab.
