I'm sure it is.. As long as there's room for a 9v battery in the cavity. It's not hard at all. Just have to replace the pots as well

with that thin of a guitar? yeah, probably. If it were a full size LP, I'd say stick the battery in the cavity. but since it's not, you'll need to route a cavity. Also, cutting a guitar is really only in assembly. routing is everything else.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Not sure how thin a LP 100 is, but I can fit a 9v into my ibanez RG cavity...

arent rg's extremely thin? haha


yep... I'm in the process of refinishing mine, and I wanted to swap the pickups with another guitar, so while I was taking it apart, I made sure the battery would fit in the cavity with the pots in there, and there's enough rough for the battery and the foam insulation piece

I would think that the battery would fit into the Epi 100 you have, just open up the cavity and stick the battery in there, if there's a little extra room for it then it'll be fine.

But wouldn't it just be better to save up your money for something like an Epi LP custom or an Agile AL-2500, they have one with EMG's stock now for a little under $400. Just throwing that out there.

I hate to tell you this man..but I dont think its worth your time..
I have an lp-100 with passive EMG's. For one its a bolt on neck..
and number two its extremely light. Those two things really hurt
your sustain. Once you move on to a better guitar you may find it
a bit uncomfortable. I know you love it and all...but trust me..
You would be better off putting that EMG 81 in a better guitar.
Save man...Save...
