Sorry if theres already a thread like this (I tried searching).

I am buying a Jackson DXMG Dinky. It comes equipped with passive EMG-HZs or something. I have a set of Active 81/60 EMG pickups which I want to swap into it once I buy it.

What I was wondering is how much would this cost at a local store. I'm not sure if this matters but is there already a way to put the battery needed for the active set in the dinky? Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the dinky's stock pickups uses a battery like the 81/60 set. Would the person installing them need to make an extra compartment or something in the body?

I know theres the DKMG which already has active EMGs, so please don't suggest that instead.

what kind of battery are we talking? if it's to AA's you can probably put them under the pots or something..

It's a 9V battery. It took up a decent amount of space in the back of my ESP. Here it is for size.

The dinkys original pickups are passive, meaning that they do not use a battery like active pickups. A 9v battery isnt too big, so there wont be any routing or bodywork needed, it will most likely just be placed in the control cavity where the volume and tone pots are. I installed 2 Emg 81's in my Bc.rich from the ****ty passive stock ones and there was literally no modification needed, theres just a battery inside one of the panels now.
