so i read the tuturoial of how to do the little trick..seems simple enough, my dad can do the soldering...but

does the same tutorial follow the same for the Hellraiser because of its battery compartment?

i mean, do i just follow the black wire out of the compartment into the electronics and do the soldering steps?

yep, should be the same. all you have to do is fit two batteries in the compartment.

Honestly I dont know why poeple do it that way. If you get 3 9v harnesses and wire them all together, all you have to do is plug 2 into a 9v and the other onto the existing harness from your guitar, its entirely reversible and works just the same without doing anything to your guitar.

^^^

People do it that way rather than the removable harness because they like to have neat wiring. Trivial, but it's personal preference. I myself used the temp harness until i knew whether I liked it or not and then made it permanent and neat.

Hardly...


Just splice the wires together, tape and plug. That's it. How is that more work that soldering wires?

The 18v mod makes a huge difference... Now that said it doesnt change the overall sound of the pickup so its not like you do it and it magically turns it into a sh59. Just makes the current pickups, dynamics, tone, and feel a whole lot better. Takes the sterile'ness out of them and makes them more organic like a passive without the power loss.

Meh.

Well its like my emg 81 i just can't get the tone I want out of it. The stock pickups in my schecter exotic which are super rock 2's sound awesome. And they are passive. So Im thinking about doing this to see if it improves the 81 i have in my sz. I used to love the 81 until I got that schecter now its hard to go back to it.

I was the same way. I have an SG with 81/85's.
Then I got a Jackson setup with SD JB/Jazz.
I hardly play the SG anymore.

Yup, but not easier than twisting wires together.

Soldering is easier, better for it, hell'a more secure and less of a fire hazzard. But by all means keep doing what your doing thats what keeps me in business....
