I am wondering if anyone can guide me through this project i want to do....

I have a Epiphone Gothic SG

and

a Squier Jagmaster

i want to replace these pick ups of the SG with a set of active EMG's 85/81 combo (i have not decided on which for neck and bridge) and i would also like to replace the Jag's pickups with the pickups that will come out of the SG as they have more of a crunch to them.

So my question is how do i go about doing this and exactly what do i require?
Thanks in advance, i am just totally stumped when it comes to this and yes i can solder.

UG Mods really have no sense of humour.....

Unsolder the pickups from the SG, transfer it over to the Jagmaster. That part is pretty easy. You just wire the SG pickups the same way the originals were wired in the jagmaster.

The EMGs will come with a wiring diagram.

Use around 20+ AWG wire, I use 26AWG. Make sure it is stranded. For a guitar... maybe get around two feet to be safe.

What else do you need to know?

How does it work with pickups that have 4 wires or 2 wires? i am pretty sure my sg will have 4 but my jag will have 2?

Thanks for the help,
also do i just place the battery in the place where all of the tone parts are?

WI don't know about that, but yes your batteries should fit in the control cavity.

Factory Standard Epi's are usually 2-conductor/wire pickups so it'll be fine.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.
