I have just purchased the Epiphone Gothic Explorer and I want to change the original pickups to an EMG 81 and EMG 60.
The only problem is because of the way explorer’s electronics are positioned there is limited space and nowhere to put the battery.
What do I do???
Are there any alternative pickups which give the same results as active EMGs but are passive but have the same metal look as EMG’s???

No

There is room in the control cavity- just. The EMG pots are smaller than regular ones and you can fit a 9V battery in there, infact it fits just right.
