So I want to change the pickups in my Ibanez, which are ACTIVE, to passive pickups.

What I want to know is how much work needs to be done?
Do I simply swap pickups or do any other parts need to be replaced???

Thanks for any help !!!!

the whole guitar needs to be re-wired. only attempt it if you know exactly what ur doing.
I did the same to my Ibanez but got a professional to do it!
Gibson Les Paul Faded Honeyburst
Ibanez RG1570 - EMG 81/85
Marshall JVM 205c
Marshall MS-4 Microstack
----------------------------
ESP EC-404 Les Paul Bass
Marshall B65

Ouch, I guess I'll just have to pay up for a pro to do it.
I can't stand the current pups

Thanks for the help!

Yeah new pots and new caps (actives use much higher value caps I think) you can just use the mono legs of the stereo jack, you dont have to change the stereo jack I think.

New pots (500k), lower resistance tone cap (.022mf for HB's I think) are what you need to change, as well as a mono output jack.

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.
