hey Did you drill out the holes larger with a hand drill???? If you did, you've got some courage and a STEADY Hand!
Yes, I used a impact driver hand drill. I do not have a drill press.. yet...
Well, I do have courage...Steady Hand...ahem... not so much...Went a little too deep... Oh well... it is now a "Semi-Chambered" body..
I might go back and fill it later...not too bad with the back plate on...
It would be great if you could confirm what size you drilled to,
I used a 13/32 drill bit which converts to 10.5MM
Box 1, 5th bit (counting from L-R), second row
On the emg's, those look awesome in your natural finished guitar. How do you like the sound? Can you get some nice clean, light OD blues tones easily? What models do you have? I'm very interested in EMGs for my next guitar, as I have to buy all new pickups, and want something versatile and I HATE noise.
Yeah... I like the look as well.. I was trying to replicate the RBMNT2.. As far as the sound...My configuration is a SA, SA and 85. I also did the 18V mod on these so here are my opinions on the sound:
- Clear, Detailed and Articulate
- NO Noise..
- Tight Bass.. Great for Metal speed picking riffs.
- Pinch Harmonics sound really cool with these P-ups...
People often say that active pups are sterile.. No Mojo.. and I would have to agree. Not saying that it is bad thing..
For blues I would not use these P-ups.. I tend to use this guitar when tracking clean reggae skanks.. I lean on my RG770's when I want some flavor...
