What EMG's do you have? If you have the HZs or whatever they're called they are passive and don't need batteries.

If you have a battery, it should be easy to see if you opened it up...

expensive?

well...seeing as you didn't even notice...i'd say you should keep your money because i'm guessing you'd be fine with them if you didn't know they weren't a 81/60 set

Look up the prices, I don't know how much they cost over there

As far as how hard it would be, you have to replace the pots (volume and tone controls) and do some wiring. You may need a soldering iron, I'm not sure (never done it). Hopefully someone can give you a better response

Right on the money if you dont need any routing done fro the battery compartment...

$100 bucks a pickup and I usually charge $50 bucks per pickup for installation. I've installed them on more then one occasion and its actually pretty easy. Emg has a great layout and connections are a breeze.

You obviously dont know what you are talking about, but let me help here. First mistake is that you didnt know what pickups you really have. Do your homework first before asking. Next, why would you like to have those EMG's? Do you know what impact it will have on your sound. Do they match with your guitar? If you dont have a clue, dont invest in it.

You seem to have a low end LTD. I wouldnt put in EMG's, but look at a new/used guitar with better quality. Second, I dont think EMG's will improve your sound a lot with that MG amp. So get a decent tube amp first if you really want to use EMG's.
