Do they use the same type of wireing and stuff as emgs? because i was interested in switching the emgs in my hellraiser for them, so i was wondering, could i just use the same emg pots/electronics/etc and just clip the new pickups in there, and then possibly put the blackout wireing and the emg pickups in my other guitar with passives? that way i would only have to redo the electronics of one of my guitars instead of both. would this work?

I'm not sure if anyone on UG has Blackouts. I'm not sure if they use the clip method that EMGs use.

EDIT - i checked the website and they do use the clip method. With the same pots etc. You could try it. But it's not garranteed to work

Actually, you can. They use the same Quik-Connect system as EMGs, so you should be able to put them in without any soldering or messing around.

i'm willing to bet that they're not that easily swappable.. simply because its 2 different brands and its likely they'll have their own proprietary system of hooking things up.

i could be wrong, but i wouldn't hold my breath.

They are that easily swappable. Seymour Duncan made them that way for a reason.

sweet, so if i just installed the duncan pots and wireing in my other guitar, i could then put the emgs in there with the duncan wireing and it would be fine?

Yeah the SD Blackouts have a Quick Connect system, even if it's not compatible (which it should be, although I have this vague recollection someone said it's not compatible) with the EMG one it only takes like 15 minutes and a soldering iron to put them in anyway.

Yeah all active pickups use 25k pots, so you can use the ones you get with the SD Blackouts for your EMGs in your other guitar, or vice versa.

Edit: They're fabulous pickups, I love mine to bits.

Are you kidding me? Seymour Duncan's plan was for every EMG owner to switch to SD.. Now why would they make it hard to swap them out? Thats right.. They wouldn't.. In fact they would try to make it as easy and as compatible as possible.
