I bought a set of 81/85's down at my local retailer the other day.

They said they would install the set for $50. SO, it might take a week or two.

Should i have done it myself? I have no experience, but my dad's a do-it-yourslef guy, and he got pissed that i didn't brignt the set to him.

Was the $50 a good investment?

$50 is not bad for a pick-up install.

1 or 2 weeks is a disgusting amount of time to wait.

I had a pickup install and full setup done on my guitar in like 2/3 days.

Routing? I didn't need to do routing when I installed the EMGs in my guitar. EMG pickups are quite simple to wire. You even get the diagram with the pickups.

I personally think that was a waste of money.

you probably had a spot for the battery pack already. The electronics cab in my guitar barely fits the electronics themselves, let alona a battery pack.

So did I, but all of the electronics was ****ed up and I tried to wire it right. Guess something went wrong.

Do you not have any cavities at all? You could put them where your pots are. A 9 volt battery doesn't take up much room.

Meh, one week or two, $50? Maybe you could've gone somewhere else, but once they're all set up and good to go, I'm sure that's all that matters.

I spent $90 to have my Seymour Duncans installed once... and it took them 1.5 months to do it. They weren't even active!!!

Half the price, fraction of the time... you sir, have a win by my standards.

No it wasn't. You could have put the battery in the back cavity where your pots are.

Sorry dude, wrong forum. This belongs in GB&C, not in the Pit.
