I was wondering if there would be anyway I could wire my guitar so I could have an EMG-81 in the neck position (Active), and my stock Alnico (Passive) in the bridge position. I was thinking of just grounding the EMG with a switch, and then switching pickups, but does anyone see any difficulties with this? (I realize I'd have to do a lot of rewiring).
its been done before but its very very very tricky... id have a pro do it... might be a bit costy but eh
Just use an ON-ON DPDT, with a pickup hot on each lug. You need the active and passive in two separate circuits, then switch them with an ON-ON.
