I figured that this thread was ok for the Electric Guitar forum, because it involves the guitar, too.


Anyways, I want to replace the stock pickups on my Ibanez RG7321, but I'm not sure if I can. When I look at the EMG-81-7 and the EMG-707 they both say on the information "The pickup is housed in EMG's 35 Extended bass housing, so it's not a direct replacement for a humbucking pickup". What does that mean exactly?

It means its a big ass pickup and you'll have to enlarge the routing to install it.

would a shop be able to enlarge the routing and install it for me?
cuz I'm a n00b when it comes to working on guitars; I wouldn't want to **** it up.

Seymour Duncan blackouts come in passive-size housing, might be worth a look.
Actives, and I've heard good things about them.
